APL Awards 2024

The Brewery, London

The Association of Professional Landscapers Awards 2024

Each year since 1995 we have been proud to recognise and reward the high standard of landscape contracting carried out by APL registered members. We use the APL Awards to promote members’ commitment to quality landscaping and keeping their customers completely satisfied.

So much can be gained from winning an APL Award – from coverage in trade and consumer press to raise your profile, improve your reputation with clients and show you’re a quality landscaper to raising morale in the team and making your company more appealing to work for. A priceless marketing tool for just a little bit of your time and a small entry fee that will give your landscaping projects, your company and your staff the recognition they deserve.

The Awards will take place on Friday 15 March at The Brewery, London
