Director of dream gardens
While we find it very normal in construction to work with a contractor and a team of construction specialists, the choice for the design and construction of a garden often falls on a gardener with only permanent employees. And that can be different, thought John de Zoete. He started the company Groenregie five years ago and has since then put together the best team of specialists for every job as a spider in the web. Suitable for the requested work and the desired garden style. From gardeners to pavers and from plasterers to carpenters. The experienced John de Zoete has been working in the world of luxury gardens for more than twenty-five years and not only has a high-quality network, but also combines his business insight with the motivation to create a dream garden as director of every garden. to make.
Where a traditional gardener carries out an assignment with his permanent team of employees, Groenregie examines for each assignment which specialist specialist – often self-employed workers or small self-employed persons – is suitable for the job. “Clients recently wanted a cobblestone path made with Belgian bluestone. For such an assignment I engage a Belgian company that excels in working with cobblestones. A standard gardener does not employ that expertise. Because we only use professionals, we deliver the desired quality. These people are spread all over the country, which means that we can carry out assignments from Groningen to Maastricht and even in Belgium, ”John points to flexibility as a major advantage of his company. He continues: “And we can offer a competitive price, because unlike gardeners with staff, Groenregie has no expensive overhead costs within the company.”
The team of specialists consists not only of artisan craftsmen, but also of five renowned and extremely creative landscape architects with whom John de Zoete can read and write. “Many of our assignments reach us through these five landscapers. Noël van Mierlo, Luc Engelhard, Erik van Gelder, Foske Groenendijk and Anneke van Megen – all with their own distinctive style – design only quality gardens and expect the garden to be laid out exactly as they envisage it. Because they know that Groenregie can meet this demand together with the specialists, they engage us. Another advantage is that we, as the main responsible, completely unburden the landscape gardener. Does the road worker have a question, knock on my door and do not call the landscaper, ”says the owner of Groenregie.
Customized quality gardens
John de Zoete is supported by four employees at Groenregie and is an important strength in every project. Clarity, honesty and good communication are of great importance during the implementation. “We record everything. If something changes, we note it and forward it to all parties involved. That works very well and that way you avoid misunderstandings. ” As a spider in the web, John de Zoete from Groenregie not only searches the best parties and unburdens the landscape gardener. As a director, the experienced garden specialist is also on the side of the clients. From the quotation to the delivery, John de Zoete is very involved in the project, he is always in close contact with the client and he strives for the best, most price-friendly and most satisfying result for the customer every step of the way. “The big winners of this work construction are ultimately the clients themselves, because their beautiful custom design is realized for the right price by the best professionals,” he concludes with a laugh.
