Marshalls has once again celebrated the quality and workmanship of its accredited landscape contractors at its prestigious annual award ceremony.
The Marshalls Register Awards held at St George’s Park, Burton-upon-Trent on Friday 3 March, celebrated the best garden and driveway projects which were designed and installed by members of Marshalls’ national Register scheme in 2016.
John Taylor of Garden TLC, based in Oldham, was crowned ‘Marshalls Contractor of the Year’ after scooping the top prize for the ‘Best Engineering Achievement’ category, and was presented with a brand new Toyota Hilux pickup truck and a natural stone trophy.
John also won the National Award for Most Creative Use of Marshalls Products, and Highly Commended in the Best Patio Transformation over 35m2 category.
All the award finalists were able to cast their vote for the 10 category winners and their overall contractor of the year through an anonymous online poll.
The Marshalls Register Awards this year attracted over 600 project submissions from 230 accredited landscape contractors and driveway installers from Marshalls’ nationwide network of members.
John said: “This was the best night ever for Garden TLC and I am thrilled to have won. Thank you to everyone who voted and the wonderful praise I’ve received from the other installers. I am truly humbled. It was a great evening, and I am totally blown away. Thank you to everyone at Marshalls for such an amazing night and all your continued support.”
David Jessop, operations manager of the Marshalls Register said: “John’s winning project was truly outstanding, and the finish of every aspect of the project was absolutely immaculate. He is most certainly a worthy winner.
