Landscape Architecture
 
Stone Library & Procurement
Hello all, First I want to point out that I am not trying to sell anyone anything and I purposely did not include any company name in this posting. I could really use some tips on how things are typically done. I recently took on a position of marketing at a large stone fabrication & landscaping materials company and could really use your input. This company has been in business for over 30 years and seems to be well respected in the local community but has not ventured out much to get into many landscaping architectural firms. I was hoping someone might be able to give me some incite as to the best method of getting this well established company on the radar of these companies. If possible I would like to find out how your procurement of stone is typically handled, and to maybe find out some of the shortcomings you might be experiencing with your existing vendors. With the many years in the industry & all the relationships this company has built, along with having one of the largest stone fabrication facilities on site I think they have a lot more to offer than most other suppliers so your input would be a big help. Thank you for you input!!

Tony, Firstly, you should change "incite" to "insight" as these words have quite different meanings.

Secondly, there are quite a few Civil Engineering, Architectural DIY and Landscape Design trade magazines in which you could advertise.

And given that the finish of the stone in your image is "rustic / rural", you might like to consider pushing the vernacular architecture angle.

Another avenue is to give freebee stone to garden designers and or present your wares at "flower shows" (here in England the most well known is the annual Chelsea Flower Show).
