Landscapers invited to enter 2012 APL Awards

The Association of Professional Landscapers (APL) is now inviting entries for the 2012 APL Awards, which celebrate excellence in British landscaping.

Categories for projects worth under £100,000 have been reviewed to incorporate five bands to reflect the variation between schemes of different values and to allow more opportunities for small businesses to enter.

There are now a total of 13 categories in the Bradstone-sponsored awards.

APL chair and chair of the judging panel Mark Gregory explained: "The awards provide a great opportunity for businesses to showcase and shout about their work."

Initial entry forms must be emailed to by 30 September. The closing date for full entries is 28 October.
