Creative Landscape Co took the Supreme Winner award for its project: Garden for Country Cottage and Barn, South Stoke Oxon. This entry is also the winner of the Overall Design and Build category.

Creative Landscape Co created an outdoor living space to meet the needs of family life and a dog with traditional cottage style planting in keeping with the surroundings. The clients required a design solution to create a new garden within an existing walled area to link their cottage extension and existing barn.

Chief judge Richard Barnard and judges Bob Sweet, Steve Smith, Robin Templar-Williams, and the APL’s National Business Manager, Phil Tremayne said of the project: "The design was absolutely appropriate for the scheme with great use of structural planting to soften, hold and separate. The angle of the house provides difficult symmetry and geometry. This was a challenging project and a harmonising solution."
