National Landscape Awards

 National Landscape Awards – winners announced

The British Association of Landscape Industries is excited to announce 63 winners of the 2022 National Landscape Awards.


2022 is a year of multiple awards for the British Association of Landscape Industries members, with 13 scooping more than one, including Accredited Contractor, Nurture Landscapes receiving an unprecedented six and Wright Landscapes close behind with five. In total, 39 members were recognised with awards across 27 categories.

All are now looking to December 2022  to compete for the Principals, Specials and sought-after Grand Award at this year’s ceremony.

The National Landscape Awards’ judging panel, led by experienced Chair, John Melmoe, were joined by Chief Executive, Wayne Grills and Events Project Manager, Emily Feeney for three days of deliberation earlier in the year, where every entry was reviewed and scrutinised by the panel. This process is no easy task, requiring meticulous attention to detail to ensure the highest level of standards are met and recognised.

John Melmoe commented on this year’s entries: “The most difficult element of any project to deliver, is the final 5%. It is this small difference that separates average schemes from great ones. Experienced, well managed members respond to clients or programme pressures with the required resources and are determined to ensure the highest standards are maintained. During the review and deliberation process, we often comment on the elusive and, in many cases critical last 5%.

Landscaping projects

“We have seen some basic, relatively low budget schemes executed to a remarkable standard. We have also seen high value, iconic projects missing that vital last step. It is self-evident from the number of entries and client’s reactions over the years, that the kudos of receiving a National Landscape Award remains highly respected within the industry. This year’s entries continue to showcase the complex and diverse nature of our industry, with some truly exemplary projects.”

Chief Executive, Wayne Grills adds: “Year on year I am amazed by the skill and creativity the Association’s members have in creating exceptional spaces for their clients and this year’s winners have been no exception. Everyone on the Judging Panel feels the responsibility to ensure they are recognising truly exceptional, client focussed solutions. We are also excited to see a growing focus towards integrating environmental and sustainable solutions within the practical requirements of the project.”

Following a spectacular return to a physical event in 2021, the National Landscape Awards ceremony will once again be held at the JW Marriott Grosvenor House, Park Lane, in London on 2 December 2022. This year’s ceremony will be hosted by actor and writer Ralf Little, best known for television comedy and the roles of Antony Royle in The Royle Family and Jonny Keogh in the first six series of Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps.  He is an accomplished awards host and a charismatic and entertaining presenter.
