You’ve made it this far through our website, maybe you found us while searching Google, saw our products on Pinterest or Instagram or another social platform led you here, but who is the team behind this amazing website? And how did this all start?
For over 15 years we have been in the landscaping industry, starting out just in our local area, working from a home office (spare bedroom with a desk and computer) with just a small van, to building a very well respected and highly skilled team, with a much bigger van! That mainly installed higher end composite decking, stainless steel balustrading and cedar fencing.
This got us noticed online, as some of our before and after pictures had been seen on the internet and people were enquiring about our fencing from outside of our local area, this was the start of a new direction for us. The decking and fencing business continued, but alongside it we started building our beautiful panels and sending them to clients nationwide.
We mainly sold our products on a very well-known auction site or through our own landscaping website and a small commercial unit was leased to grow this side of the business. Within our first year we had outgrown our unit and had to move to larger premises to keep up with demand for our products, which as well as being bought direct by homeowners, we were now selling to other landscapers, garden designers and builders. This was another turning point for our business and we decided to fully focus on the fencing and leave the decking behind, this was a very hard decision to make, but not one that we have come to regret.
Fast forward to today, we have moved again to larger premises, our staffing and team has grown to suit the needs of the business, taking on some very skilled people, as well as growing the skills of those who are still here from those earlier days.
We now sell our wide range of high quality, sustainable timbers, fence panels, gates and other related products, to a huge range of clients, from homeowners, trade clients, such as landscapers, builders, and garden designers, to big names in the landscaping industry, such as Marshalls who used some of our products at their show garden at RHS Chelsea. We regularly have had our products used by designers on multiple award-winning show gardens, at places such as RHS Tatton Park, RHS Chelsea, RHS Hampton Court and others, as well as work with architects to assist with their designs and drawings.
We’re still that family run business that started out in that spare bedroom all those years ago. We’ve just had to grow and adapt along with the business and learn new skills, to allow us to cope with the demand that a growing business has.
I still run all the big decisions past my wife, this is not to second guess myself, but I value her honest opinion and her feedback. She looks at things with an outside perspective and asks honest questions, to why it would be done that way. She usually wins and the relevant changes are then made.
The team at Slatted Screen Fencing are also involved in decision making. If it’s a new product, a new profile size or timber range, then it is discussed, ideas shared, and things tweaked if needed. Listening to my team’s input is an invaluable source of information, that helps us provide, both a high service level and high-quality product that has rightly earned us our place in this very competitive market, as well as our well-deserved positive online reviews.
