Frogheath Landscapes takes the title

Frogheath Landscapes was crowned Supreme Winner at the APL Awards, sponsored by Bradstone, which took place at The Brewery in London this month.
The Sussex-based company took the overall award for its project which involved landscaping the gardens surrounding a rare timber and brick 16th century sheep barn in the Brede Valley.
The project, also the winner of the Project Value over £250,000 category, included features such as a formal lawn punctuated with clipped Quercus ilex and exuberant borders, secluded areas enclosed with stilted hornbeam hedges, a walled potager with a contemporary fruit arbour, dipping pond and rustic raised beds. Frogheath Landscapes also created an orchard under planter with a wildflower meadow and a gentle walk through a nuttery of local filberts and Kentish cobs. To promote sustainability all bricks, tiles and Yorkstone are reclaimed, all lighting LED and a rainwater harvester provides irrigation.
The judges commented, “It is a fabulous piece of landscaping work that has exquisite detailing especially within the planting. It is simply stunning fitting the house and its surroundings perfectly.”
Other category winners included Arun Landscapes, RG Landscape & Construction Ltd, James Bird Landscapes, Timotay Landscapes, Big Fish Landscapes, Planet 14 Landscapes and Landform Consultants.
New for 2016 awards were presented to suppliers where the winners were Coles Nurseries, Palmstead Nurseries, Chessington Garden Centre, Green-tech and 2 Circles. Will Burberry from Gardenscapes, who won the APL Worldskills Competition received a special award.
Hosted by landscaper and horticulturist, Chris Collins, and HTA Head of Horticulture, Raoul Curtis-Machin, the awards celebrated the high standards of landscaping achieved by members and demonstrates the APL’s commitment to quality landscaping. Chris also provided the audience with an entertaining tour of his horticultural exploits in Cameroon and Japan.
