Kingston Landscape Group Ltd take home the top accolade at the APL Awards 2019.

The annual awards ceremony, sponsored by Bradstone, took place on Friday 15 March at The Brewery, London, to celebrate and recognise the outstanding landscaping carried out by members of the APL. 

Kingston Landscape Group Ltd, based in London, took the Supreme Winner Award for their project: Streatham Hill. This entry was also the winner of the Commercial Garden and Soft Landscaping categories.

Streatham Hill is a gated residential development built around a landscaped communal courtyard garden located in South West London. Measuring approx. 1,228m2 the south facing garden is enclosed on three sides by five and six storey apartments with planting selected to provide year-round interest. Height and structure was created with 60 semi-mature trees under planted with over 6,000 spring bulbs. Scented plants and herbs were included for residents to enjoy.  The garden was constructed at first floor level above a car park with a further second floor above a new retail unit. The two levels are linked by an external staircase. Corten steel was used throughout to offset the planting and create seating, borders and to clad the three raised water features.

The judges’ commented, “A comprehensive landscape treatment with a creative use of planters, Corten steel and beautiful soft landscaping. The composition of the space made it feel like a number of smaller gardens which could be enjoyed by the residents and offered inspiration.”

This year’s judges were Richard Barnard from Hillier Landscapes (Chief judge), Steve Smith from Shore Landscapes, Bob Sweet - ex RHS Head of Garden Judging, Robin Templar Williams from Robin Williams and Associates, Rupert Keys from Keyscape Design & Construction and Phil Tremayne - APL General Manager.

The event once again drew in record breaking numbers of over 380 attendees, who heard from Jamie Butterworth hosting the event, and Landscape Institute President, Adam White, giving an insight into his illustrious career so far.
