Landform Consultants was the resounding winner at this year’s Association of Professional Landscapers (APL) Awards.
At a ceremony held last week at Sandown Park Racecourse, the Surrey-based landscaper picked up six medals — including the top honour of “supreme winner”.
Landform director Mark Gregory said: “We’re thrilled. We hadn’t expected to win six of these prestigious awards.”
Gregory and his team’s work on a rear garden in Pelham Crescent, Kensington, London, earned them the “supreme” accolade.
The garden, also the winner of the £50,000 garden construction category, was designed by Luciano Giubbilei — who stuck to his signature style of creating minimalist “outdoor rooms”.
It required the demolition of the existing garden, the creation of two flights of steps, base works and drainage for the water feature, paving, complex lighting including fibre optics, planting, decking and the creation of bespoke timber fencing and a covered pavilion.
Judge David Stevens, of garden design firm David Stevens International, handed out the prize. He said: “In 40 years of landscaping I have seen thousands of gardens but none of them as good as this. Not only is it a genuine piece of art — it’s confident and is the kind of work that needs to be noted by designers and contractors alike.”
Gregory added: “As contractors we must convey the passion the designer has through every member of the team. I’m glad that the passion showed through.”
Landform also won APL’s £30,000 to £50,000 category for building an outdoor entertainment area for a private client in London and the maintenance award for its upkeep of White Horse Lodge’s grounds in Hampton.
It was also awarded with a “highly commended” certificate in the maintenance category and a “commended” certificate in the awards’ commercial category.
