APL medals at Tatton Park

The Association of Professional Landscapers is celebrating after winning medals at RHS Flower Show Tatton Park (25-28 July). The Precious Resources garden, sponsored by Bradstone, designed by Paul Hervey-Brookes and built by a collaboration of the founder members of the APL North West Cluster Group has won silver at the show.

Built by Andy Kirman of Kirman Design, Steve Foxcroft and Simon Ford of Foxcroft Landscapes, Stephen Hargreaves of Seasonal Landscapes and Mick Topp of Vision Landscapes, the garden uses modern materials to create a contemporary urban oasis that puts how we use water at its heart.

The design uses a wealth of plants that are both decorative and have culinary uses. This is the first time that the APL has had a show garden at RHS Flower Show Tatton Park.

A Stainless Century won gold and Best Large Garden and was built by APL members Garden Style.

APL members Greenbelt Landscapes also won gold for the construction of the Alzheimer's Society Remember to Reflect Garden and Silver for The Dirty Stop Out Garden, which was also sponsored by member Natural Paving.

APL chairman Mark Gregory said; "This is the first time we have had an APL branded garden at RHS Flower Show Tatton Park and I am delighted to see a medal win for the North West Cluster Group.  It is great to see the APL's work showcased at this level and we hope the Tatton public will choose APL when considering getting their garden landscaped."
