Flatbed structures for gardening & landscaping
Green in form
Isabell Dremel’s day begins at five o’clock in the morning at the latest. After a quick breakfast, she picks up her employees in the grass-green flatbed and sets off to her customers. Today, Thomas is with her. He is an independent gardener and a specialist in ecological weed killing. Isabell is a second-generation gardener; her brother and husband are also dedicated to the world of plants. For a number of years, she has been the owner of the gardening company Henselek & Dremel in Berlin. “Grün in Form” (“Green in shape”) is displayed under the logo and that’s exactly what she does: get green areas and gardens into shape.
Her customers are owners’ associations, property managers and older owners with large plots of land. Isabell and her team visit them to shape hedges, maintain ponds, cut lawn edges, install robotic mowers, redesign flowerbeds and eliminate weeds without using chemicals. And when a whole garden has to be designed from scratch, a new paving path laid or a giant old oak monitored for stability, her husband’s partner company springs into action. In this way, everything is kept in the family.
“I’m the fastest there is with the net.”
Practical load securing net
“The net,” says Isabell, “is extremely practical for me.” In the autumn, she drives to the composting site several times a day to dispose of leaves. Her colleagues always need much longer than she does to laboriously free their load from the lashing straps. The net takes just a couple of movements. Envious glances are pre-programmed. And with heavy, bulky things like the wheelbarrow, the net reveals its full potential because no additional securing is needed. What’s more, she doesn’t have to spend ages explaining how the load securing works to each new assistant; the net is almost foolproof.

Before & after
Clearing away leaves takes priority, especially in the autumn. Using a giant leaf blower, Isabell clears gardens and open spaces from what the trees leave behind. “Good, appropriate tools,” she says, “are enormously important for our work.” Despite its size, the leaf blower fits in Isabell’s RoadBox. “I have to place it into the upper compartment at a slight angle, but then I can get it without having to remove the blower tube.”
Know your needs to select the right box
Before buying a transport box, you should really determine what you want to transport in it. If you use, say, a long-handled tool every day, a version with XL storage space is essential for you. Hoes, rakes and brooms with a handle length of up to 1.60 metres can be easily stowed this way.
“My husband is envious of my RoadBox.”
Isabell used to just lay all her tools loose on the loading area. “That was very impractical in several ways. What you need is usually right at the bottom and the small stuff in particular is impossible to find,” she can still remember well. Then she discovered the RoadBox from LogicLine at a trade fair. She was able to try it out there and then. Now she no longer has to climb onto the loading area to search for the right tool. Thanks to the drawers, she has direct access to clothing, fertiliser and small tools. And she can secure canisters containing hazardous substances properly with straps. For his flatbed vehicle, her husband has a storage box without drawers from another manufacturer and is pretty envious about the practicality of Isabel’s setup.

I’m a professional and want the best for my work!
When asked what she likes most about her job, Isabell answers without hesitation: “The collaboration with my customers.” The customers love their gardens and appreciate the practical and systematic work of the gardener. And there’s nothing better after a day’s work than to drive home knowing that I’ve made the life of a garden owner or garden visitor a little nicer.
When choosing tools, Isabell values the opinion of trustworthy advisers. At the garden centre, she relies on a favourite salesman she’s known for years. Isabell is also impressed by LogicLine’s service: “Extremely competent,” is the judgement. “I once needed to quickly know the mesh size of the safety net because I wanted to transport something particular. Mr Bosecke, my contact, didn’t even have to look it up.”
She recently talked to a well-known roofer about the topic of tools and materials. It turned out that they both have the same opinion: “We’re professionals and only want the best for our work as well.”
