Grace Landscapes wins turf-themed photo competition

Photographic proof of the difference quality turfing can make in public areas has clinched a competition win for Grace Landscapes.

Grace Landscapes, of Cheshire, saw off the competition to be crowned as winners of Turfland’s annual photo contest.

Southport-based turf supplier Turfland ran the competition from June until the end of September.

The job of judging was fielded out to Barenbrug UK’s research and development manager Jayne Leyland.

Jayne Leyland chose an image of landscaping works in Lord Street, Southport, sent in by Grace Landscapes’s regional contracts manager Nick Johnson and said:

It highlights how the selection and professional installation of a quality turf makes an important difference in contributing to an attractive, accessible municipal scheme that can be enjoyed by everyone.

First prize in the competition is a weekend break at the recently opened five star Vincent Hotel based near the Turfland offices in Southport.

Turfland sales and marketing manager Angela Mackay said: The competition was stiff, with a varied and interesting selection of images.

It is rare that we see the completed projects that our turf gets delivered too so we are very proud when we see the difference that an expanse of lush healthy grass provides.
