TV gardener to host BALI awards

Best practice in the landscape industry will be celebrated at the British Association of Landscape Industries' (BALI) 32nd national awards this winter.

The BALI National Landscape Awards are being held on 5 December at the Grosvenor House Hotel, in London.

First introduced in 1976 to acknowledge professionalism and best practice in the landscape industry, this year’s awards will feature celebrity guest speaker Alistair McGowan.

The awards will be hosted by television gardener David Domoney.

There are 16 different categories covering domestic, commercial, grounds maintenance and interior projects.

A Principal Award is given in each category and finalists that do not win a Principal Award, will receive a National Award.

The Grand Award is presented to the BALI member firm whose winning scheme is considered to exemplify landscaping excellence.

Last year’s grand award winner was Hillier Landscapes, for its project at Marl House, in Burley. It was the first domestic landscaping scheme to win the Grand Award since 1997.
