Over the last decade, outdoor living has become a major focus for homeowners and has brought many trends from artificial grass to porcelain outdoor paving. However, one consistent feature over the years is a practical patio that complements the home – something Aura Landscapes has been helping homeowners install for over 10 years.
We are a family run business based in Southampton. Founded in 2010, Aura’s hard landscaping specialists have helped over 200 homeowners transform their gardens into outdoor living spaces. Director and in-house designer, Mike Warman, talks about what he expects from 2020 and beyond for the landscaping industry:
“I expect landscaping companies will need to deliver on quality and service, as there is so much information available to customers, that they now have more of an idea of what they want and what to expect. The trends of porcelain paving, and composite decking will continue due to the low maintenance aspect. Environmental impact is high on everyone’s agenda and we are certainly looking at ways to be more environmentally efficient with our landscaping projects looking at recycling, waste and drainage elements.”
Surpassing all industry standards, Aura Landscapes has won over 20 awards for its quality installations and business practices. Supporting local apprenticeship schemes, Aura has employed numerous apprentices and local talents over the years. Starting as an apprentice in 2015, Luke McKay is now a lead landscaper and hopes his story will encourage others to pursue this career:
“Landscaping as a whole is an under-staffed industry, with little support and apprenticeship schemes on offer. I was lucky enough to find an apprenticeship with Aura Landscapes and have progressed within the company since. It’s amazing to be able to install creative projects and be proud that many of those projects have become award-winning and to see the customers say WOW at the finished results.”
