Pro Landscaper announces its 30 Under 30: The Next Generation 2016 winners

30 under 30

Following the success of the inaugural 30 Under 30: The Next Generation last year, Pro Landscaper launched the initiative again this July to find yet another 30 young inspiring people in the industry with some incredible achievements.

30 Under 30: The Next Generation was initially launched to help young people within the horticulture and landscape sectors gain recognition and celebrate their achievements to date, and to promote them in a way that would enhance their careers.

This has certainly been the case with the inaugural 30, who have commented that the accolade has helped them to make more connections, raised their own profiles as well as that of the industry, and that it provided a platform for shining a light on the new generation.

This year, a high volume of applications was received from all sectors of the industry, including garden design, landscaping, landscape architecture, arboriculture and suppliers. The response has been fantastic, and after careful scrutiny Pro Landscaper is proud to reveal its 30 Under 30 for 2016, with an official presentation to be held at FutureScape 2016 on Tuesday 15 November.
