Judges including Landform Consultants managing director Mark Gregory and landscape designer Andy Sturgeon have met to analyse entries to the Association of Professional Landscapers (APL) Awards.

The APL has received a total of 58 entries to its awards - up from 48 entries last year. The awards - sponsored by Bradstone - are being held on 10 February.

According to chair of the judges and APL vice-chair Mark Gregory the standard of entries has improved as well.

The judging panel for the APL Awards consists of Gregory, Andy Sturgeon, APL chief executive Jason Lock and The Essential Earthmen's owner Alex Webster.

Bradstone marketing manager Sally Holgate and The Garden magazine deputy editor Chris Young are also on the panel.

 The APL Awards recognise and promote British landscaping and demonstrate the high quality of landscaping achieved by APL registered members and their commitment to professional workmanship and customer satisfaction.

The APL Awards lunch will be taking place at the Sketchley Grange Hotel in Hinckley, Leicestershire. Visit www.landscaper.org.uk to download a booking form or contact the APL Events Team by emailing events@the-hta.org.uk or calling 0118 930 3132 for more information.
