LI Awards 2018

The Landscape Institute Awards are presented each year to landscape professionals in recognition of outstanding work. The Awards celebrate the value of landscape practice in connecting people, place and nature by demonstrating excellence, innovation and creativity in the natural and built environment

The Landscape Institute is the chartered body for the landscape profession. Its mission is to lead and inspire the profession to deliver for the benefit of people, place and nature, for today and for future generations. Its vision is to develop the skills, knowledge and professional behaviours of its members; to be agile, innovative and responsive in the face of environmental challenges and major social change; and to help its members and the communities they serve deliver more sustainable ways for living and working in the future.
The Awards showcase the exceptional work of the many different types of landscape professionals including landscape designers, managers, planners and researchers.
