  • Harden up!

    In the continuation of our series of Industry Nights specific to various materials and installation techniques, we are delighted to present 'Concrete'.

    Commercial and Residential Designers: learn about the adaptability of concrete to your urban landscape solutions through custom and pre-cast fabrications. The possibilities are only limited by your imagination and creativity.

    Commercial and Residential Builders: hear from our expert presenters about the products available to install into your construction projects - from functional underground products to aesthetically beautiful feature pieces, the full spectrum will be covered. And for the best looking  stone and concrete, learn how to protect them well into the future through the use of premium sealing products.


    As an experienced surface cleaning and sealing business, Prestige Surfaces understand stone and concrete. Matt Nash will explain the benefits of utilising penetrating sealant that has been exclusively formulated for porous natural stone, tile and concrete substrates to provide a fully breathable invisible protective barrier to create longer lasting perfect finishes for all commercial and residential applications.

    SVC Anston share 90 years of experience in the manufacture of premium precast concrete solutions. Their recent partnership opens a myriad of opportunities to bring innovative new product and service offerings to the landscape industry. Long-time friend and supporter of LV, Bruce Grogan, Business Development Manager at SVC Anston will present the latest in concrete paving, urban furniture and custom casting. Bruce has almost 20 years of industry experience and has been a valuable contributor to the landscaping industry throughout the span of his career. He works in collaboration with landscape designers, architects, building contractors and suppliers on a daily basis and advocates for the upskilling of the industry via shared knowledge and practices.

    If you’re after colour and style in your indoor and outdoor hard surfaces, then the Hanson Imagecrete decorative concrete range gives you any look you like, and lasts a lifetime. Danny Smith, Territory Sales Manager, will talk about the effectiveness of using decorative concete to compliment any outdoor or indoor space - from residential buildings (think driveways, gardens and al fresco areas) to civil projects (think safety crossings, parklands and shopping centres) and then lastly, commercial building applications (think foyers in multi-storey office blocks, hotels and museums). 


    The chosen location for this Industry Night is unique in that the exterior work in this precinct was carried out by one of our very own, Landscape Plus, and SVC product has been used extensively in the construction works. Once you’ve heard about the product, you can take a look at it in practice! Chris Keay will be on hand to answer any questions about the practical application of the products also.
