Caribbean Blinds Shows Continued Support for Prestigious Landscape Industry Awards

Last Friday 19th April, marked the prestigious 2024 Pro Landscaper Business Awards and we were  incredibly proud to be a part of this incredible event.

Having been involved with these awards since 2020, we were proud to be headline sponsor for the third consecutive year in a bid to show our continued support and dedication to this fantastic industry.

“The landscape sector is incredibly important to us as a business,” highlights our MD Stuart Dantzic.

“More of our pergolas make it to market through this sector compared to any other. We feel being involved in the awards is a fantastic way for us to give back to an industry which generously designs and incorporates our pergolas into their innovative schemes and trusts and promotes our brand.”

The Pro Landscaper Business Awards are designed to recognise organisations within the UK’s landscaping industry, particularly those who set the standard for how to successfully run a business which considers its people, processes, sustainability, and innovation.

At Caribbean Blinds we strive for excellence in everything we do and appreciate this goes beyond the products we manufacture and supply. We know success within a business stems from investing in the team around you as well as embracing technology and the latest trends to survive and thrive – and this is exactly what is celebrated at these awards.

With almost 40 years’ experience as external shading experts operating across the landscaping industry, we’ve noticed a thing or two that separates this sector from others within the UK, as Stuart explains.

“Family businesses dominate the landscape industry. Even larger companies have a family mentality which I believe has an incredible impact on the way things are done.

“Ultimately, every business is designed to make money but when it’s more family orientated, the primary goal is focusing on the long term and making a real difference. This means, the investments we make in our business now are all about the future. It’s this ethos which makes us proud to sponsor these awards that recognise forward thinking companies who take care in what they do.”

We’ve faced some challenges in the sector over the last year so moving forward, we want to do our bit to continue supporting those ambitious companies working throughout the sector.

Our research shows customers are continuing to invest in quality products and services, however they want to understand exactly what they’re getting for their money, it’s no longer enough to say ‘this is the best product’ it needs to be demonstrated. Here are a few ways in which we have evolved our product offering and refined our services to the landscape sector, based on their feedback:

1. Classic Lite Pod

We have developed and launched last November, at Futurescape, a premium set size pergola which offers exceptional value for money and bridges the gap between off the shelf inferior pergolas and bespoke made to measure systems. With fully customisable add-ons including lighting, heating and side screens, landscapers can create the perfect pergola for their clients garden scheme.

2. Pergola Installation Service

With our premium installation service, landscapers can focus on what they do best, while we focus on what we do best – manufacturing and now installing on their behalf the best pergolas in the UK.

3. Dream Gardens Show Site

We have built a dedicated show site featuring all five of our pergola systems in real life garden set ups so landscapers can visit with their clients to see the superior features and benefits first-hand.

4. Dealer Loyalty Scheme

Dedicated to rewarding our landscaper partners, we’ve created a loyalty scheme that means the more they spend, the more they save by increasing discounts off our trade price list, subsequently boosting margins.

For almost four decades, we have been dedicated to external shading, designing, manufacturing and supplying innovative solutions for trade including landscapers as well as window, door, blinds, shutters and awnings retailers and installers.
