    2017 APL Award winners announced

    Creative Landscape Co is the APL Awards 2017 Supreme Winner.

    The annual awards ceremony, sponsored by Bradstone, took place on Friday 17 March at The Brewery, London, to celebrate and recognise the outstanding landscaping carried out by members of the APL.

    Creative Landscape Co took the Supreme Winner award for its project: Garden for Country Cottage and Barn, South Stoke Oxon. This entry is also the winner of Overall Design and Build category.

    Creative Landscape Co created an outdoor living space to meet the needs of family life and a dog with traditional cottage style planting in keeping with the surroundings. The clients required a design solution to create a new garden, within an existing walled area, to link their cottage extension and existing barn.

    The judges commented: “The design was absolutely appropriate for the scheme, with great use of structural planting to soften, hold and separate. The angle of the house provides difficult symmetry and geometry. This was a challenging project and a harmonising solution.”

    The standard of entries exceeded expectations and yet again there were a record breaking number of submissions for the judges to deliberate over. On the judging panel were industry experts: Richard Barnard as chief judge, Bob Sweet, Steve Smith, Robin Templar-Williams, and the APL’s national business manager, Phil Tremayne.

    Motivating landscape designer, Adam Frost, was welcomed on the day as special guest speaker. Adam shared his landscaping inspirations and upcoming projects.
