Ryan Alexander Landscape Design & Build is the Supreme Winner at the APL Awards 2018

Company: The Association of Professional Landscapers (APL)
  • Ryan Alexander Landscape Design & Build - Award
  • Ryan Alexander Landscape Design & Build - Garden

Ryan Alexander Landscape Design & Build take home the top accolade at the APL Awards 2018.

The annual awards ceremony, sponsored by Bradstone, took place on Friday 16 March at The Brewery, London, to celebrate and recognise the outstanding landscaping carried out by members of the APL. 

Ryan Alexander Landscape Design & Build, based in Berkshire, took the Supreme Winner award for their project: Dean Grange. This entry was also the winner of the Project Value Over £200,000 category.

Dean Grange is a newly built luxury family home, designed by James Lambert Architects. The garden design and build, designed by Bowles & Wyer, needed to both complement and reflect the high specification and use of quality contemporary materials within the house. The outdoor space is made up of the following areas: wild flower meadow, formal rear lawn, fire pit/entertaining area, orchard & walled kitchen garden; sunken garden, children's play area, pool & guest house terrace. The overall plot is approx. 9 acres. The project took around 12 months to build. Much was undertaken during the construction of the house which presented logistical challenges and negotiations with the main contractor to ensure the project would be completed on time and within budget.

The judges commented, “An impressive and inspirational achievement for other landscapers with the opportunity to interpret all available space with creative planting achieved to perfection. Each area tells a story and was built for a reason and purpose. Outstanding!”

The standard of entries exceeded expectations and yet again there were a record-breaking number of submissions, and individual entrants, 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 General Manager, Phil Tremayne.

The record breaking 360 strong audience heard from industry stalwart, Chris Collins, giving the audience part two of his tales from his career including highlights of his time as a gardener at Westminster Abbey, the changes he made, and how he was the first gardener there to have a computer. Taking place on Garden Re-Leaf Day, Greenfingers was the nominated charity for the event with landscapers giving generously for the cause.
