The former landscape contractor will be joined at the awards by members of the judging panel, headed by APL vice-chairman Mark Gregory.
Gregory told HW the standard of entries had been "exceptionally high" this year, as members recognised the value of winning awards for their business.
"The bar has been raised with the standard of entries this year being exceptionally high," he said. "The awards provide a great opportunity to network with APL members and hear first-hand about the winning landscaping projects."
The judging panel consisted of Gregory, RHS representative Chris Young, sponsor Bradstone's representative Sally Holgate, garden designer Andy Sturgeon, APL chief executive Jason Lock and the Essential Earthmen senior partner Alex Webster.
