Landscaping Award success for Woodbridge based Roger Gladwell Landscapes
Woodbridge based Roger Gladwell Landscapes have been highly commended at the Association of Professional Landscapers (APL) Awards 2013, sponsored by Bradstone for a recent outstanding landscaping project.
The awards, announced at Kensington Roof Gardens in London on 13 March 2013 gain national recognition for their achievements and are testament to the high calibre landscaping offered by APL members.
The ‘Botesdale Lodge’ project was highly commended in the Project value over £250,000 category, sponsored by Sovereign Turf. The project created a welcoming approach to the property and to have colourful beautiful gardens flowing around the house, with flowering plants all year round. Judges commented that “the garden is extremely put together well. All the different sections of the garden work separately yet flow beautifully. The volume of paving is impressive.”
The awards, sponsored by Bradstone, now in their 17th year, recognise and promote the very best in landscaping in categories that range from smaller projects, special features and garden maintenance to contracts of over £250,000. The awards are a celebration of the high standards that have been achieved by members and demonstrate the APL’s commitment to quality landscaping.
Guests attending the event also heard an inspirational and motivating talk from former Royal Marines Commando and genuine hero Major Phil Ashby.
This year’s judges were Mark Gregory, Richard Barnard from Hillier Landscapes, Adam Frost from Adam Frost Designs, Juliet Roberts from Gardens Illustrated and Sarah Eberle from Sarah Eberle Landscape Design.
“I am continually impressed at the work our APL members are engaged in.” said APL Chairman and Chair of the Judges Mark Gregory “The variety and complexity of the schemes are just brilliant and they show the skills and sheer tenacity on overcoming the most difficult of sites and site conditions. This year’s awards illustrate this point perfectly.”
