Jill says:

It’s not very often you can say that the work you’ve done has helped save the trees.  But in this instance it’s not an exaggeration.  

Ashwells Reclaimed Timber is a Thurrock based reclamation & recycling business.  Established on the River Thames, and Thames Estuary with plans to expand reclamation & supply services to clients across the UK.​  They salvage and rescue beautiful, durable tropical timber.  Preventing it from going to landfill and stopping more tropical trees from being cut down unnecessarily. 

We recommended a marketing strategy that used high profile garden projects (such as RHS Chelsea) to legitimise Ashwells position as the UK’s leading reclaimed tropical timber specialist and enable the firm to become a respected voice on sustainable landscape design.  Using in-bound PR to build a sales pipeline and moving prospects down the sales funnel with a combination of social, blog and email marketing tactics.  

Reclaimed timber takes pride of place in the Back to Nature and Facebook: Behind the Curtain gardens at RHS Chelsea 2019  

It was a great project to work on, not least because of the strong sustainability message and powerful supporting photography.
