A bustling month for LIAWA in September saw the emergence of new spring growth highlighting increased consumer demand, and LIAWA is witnessing a growing number of requests for landscape contractors across various projects. As the industry gears up for the upcoming busy season, it’s important to acknowledge the shifting landscape as we approach summer. The Bureau of Meteorology’s forecast of an El Nino, the first in eight years, underscores the need for the industry to prioritise sustainability in design, construction, and operations. CEO, Christine Stanton, shares some updates.
