Recent SGD Cluster Group Meets

Charwood, Edinburgh

Richard travelled all the way to Edinburgh from his home on the outskirts of London to present to a group of 15 garden designers and 3 landscapers who were hungry for knowledge.

With a car boot full of samples and a brain full of ideas, he entertained the group with lively anecdotes from his career in the industry and gave a demonstration of the solid wall system.

Group members were encouraged to examine product samples and ask as many questions as they could think of.  And of course, Richard will always be on hand should anything else come to mind in the future.
