Ellicar crowned Supreme Winner at 2024 APL Awards

15 March 2023

The Association of Professional Landscapers (APL) annual awards ceremony, sponsored by Bradstone, took place on Friday 15 March at the Brewery in London. The sold-out event recognised and celebrated the outstanding landscaping carried out by members of the APL. The awards were hosted by APL General Manager Phil Tremayne, with guest speaker Frances Tophill. 

Ellicar took home the top award for their Wildlife and water garden in Nottinghamshire.  Their task was to create a bright, colourful, naturalistic garden, reminiscent of their client’s Kenyan childhood, so she could step outside into nature, support wildlife, enjoy wild swimming, relax and dine outdoors with family and friends. 

Phil Tremayne, APL General Manager commented,  

“Massive congratulations to Ellicar on this fantastic garden. What a super project and well deserved to be crowned the 2024 Supreme Winner. However, congratulations should go to all the finalists, the standard is so high now and to win any medal at these awards is a fantastic achievement. Well done all and hopefully see you in 2025.” 

This year’s judges were Richard Barnard from Kings Oak Landscapes (Chief judge), Bob Sweet – Horticultural director at River Street Events, Rupert Keys from TASK Academy, Rod Winrow from Garden House Design, and Phil Tremayne - APL General Manager.  

The APL would like to thank Bradstone for its continued headline sponsorship and thank the category sponsors listed below for their support, as without them, the APL Awards would not be what they are today. 

Our Judges would like to thank everyone that took part in the awards and congratulate the winners. The APL encourages the winners and finalists to use their entry to promote their businesses, the industry and APL membership.  

We look forward to seeing everyone involved as well as new entrants and partners again for the APL Awards 2025 and entry is now open via the APL Awards website. Next year’s event takes place on Friday 14 March 2025 and we look forward to celebrating our milestone 30th year of the APL.
