JPJ LANDSCAPES MERGER WITH JO-ANNE HILLIAR LANDSCAPE DESIGN & HORTICULTURE SCHOOL

JPJLandscapes merged with Jo-Anne Hilliar Landscape Design Consultants due to Jo-Anne Hilliar's decision to semi-retire. Judy Panton-Jones and Jo-Anne Hilliar Landscape Design Consultants have enjoyed many years of close association and as Jo-Anne has directed her SALI Selected Supplierfocus more towards International clientele, it made good sense for the merger of the two businesses to take place in order to ensure the maximum reach of the School within Southern Africa.
