What we are celebrating

This award celebrates excellence in the implementation of landscape design on a site, corresponding to plan-of-work stages 4-6.  This could represent an outstanding partnership between a designer and a contractor, or may be the work of a single design-and-build practice, whether they’ve seen the design through from concept, or else picked it up at a later stage. 

It may be any type or size of site, but it must be built-out and signed off by the client.  It celebrates attention to detail in all types of on-the-ground implementation, from product sourcing, contract and project management, construction of hard landscaping elements on site, planting, seeding, laying of turf, and so on. 

The judges will be looking at how these elements come together to produce an outstanding place.

  • The work may be of any scale
  • Part of the awarded activity must have taken place between July 2019 and July 2021
