The firm also took the prize for the best project valued at between £15,000 and £30,000. The Yew Tree Cottage project, created by designer Karen Chamberlain, transformed the existing lawn of a 14th century cottage into a space incorporating a gravel garden, terraces, an informal lawn and surrounding plants. Announcing the award, APL chair Mark Gregory said the project was "well thought out, had clean lines and good craftsmanship."
Hillier Landscapes was awarded the prize for best overall design and build. Its project saw the amalgamation of two gardens of neighbouring properties, incorporating soft and hard landscaping with space for entertaining and children's play. Gregory said the project was "a fantastic design".
Winners were announced in 10 categories judged by Gregory, TVG Landscaping's Stuart Marler, designer James Alexander Sinclair, The Garden magazine editor Chris Young and Bradstones' Mark Wood, whose organisation sponsored the event.
