Pretty Porta Potties, A New Trend for Landscape Contactors?

Is it possible that this is a new trend for contractors?  If you have been through a major construction project of any sort you probably had to live with the site of a porta potty in front of your home but blogger Grant Gibson noticed a new trend in his own San Francisco neighborhood …. upgraded johns.

I am taking it as a celebrated sign of increased interest in the customer experience, and I think construction contractors should take a que from these images and use this this prime opportunity to be distinctive and considerate.

The opportunities are ripe for making a personal statement.  Good interesting design and construction can say alot about the quality of a business’s work.  Real estate is created on which to hang a very well-kempt advertising sign or like this company even some brochures. I sure hope it is a trend that carries on.

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.
