Award Winning Gardens

Landscaping Awards


The Association of Professional Landscapers (APL) awards are designed to acknowledge the high achievements of their members, and raise the profile of APL registered landscapers and their high quality of work.

These awards select the best work from the landscaping industry. The awards are split into different categories from low-budget gardens to projects over £125,000. The awards are judged by an independent panel of experts and the Chairman of the APL.
We have won many of these APL awards some including:

2011 Supreme winners

This project was entered into the category Garden Construction between £15,000 – £30,000 and went on to win the supreme award, beating some of the very best landscape companies in the country. The garden, designed by Karen Chamberlain Garden design incorporated the clients brief to include a soft gravel garden by the kitchen, a secluded garden in the corner of the house to escape the summer sun, a terrace area to entertain guests and a large lawn for the grandchildren to enjoy.

2010 Category Winners

This project won the category Garden Construction between £30,000 – £60,000. This was a particularly difficult project. The access was poor and large amounts of spoil needed to be taken off site. This garden included a large retaining brick wall with a water feature in, a patio for the clients to entertain on and adding some planting into the upper garden. Read the full case study of this project.

2007 Category winners

This project won the category Garden Construction over £50,000. This extremely large project incorporated a large driveway with two way access, cobble pathway to the side of the house which connected the driveway, main terrace and courtyard, a main terrace for the clients to enjoy the summer sun, a feature pond to relax, a small side garden , a new lawn, a courtyard area with a water feature, and new planting throughout the project. Changing materials in different areas created interest and made a large garden seem smaller. Garden lighting was important as this garden was to be used day and night.

2007 Highly Commended

This project was highly commended in the category Garden Construction between £30,000 – £50,000. The clients brief was a for a country garden with a large patio for entertaining, large borders for a wide variety of plants and something to split the garden into smaller areas. This was achieved by installing a pergola to a courtyard enclosed with trellis and a large border to the rear of the courtyard. To view the project go to the gallery.

2007 Commended

This project was commended in the category Garden Construction under £15,000. The client has a small garden with a new conservatory. The client wanted a combination of gravel, grass, lawn and a patio area. Creating the gravel garden and lawn in interlocking circles takes the eye away from the fact that it is a small garden and gives the impression of space. Timber structures above the brick and sandstone seat create some height. To view the project go to the gallery.
