TWO designers from Notcutts Landscapes in Woodbridge have achieved recognition in the Association of Professional Landscapers Awards.

Jason Lock won the Front Garden category, with a design for a garden at an undisclosed location close to the Suffolk-Norfolk border, and Chris Deakin was highly commended in the Design and Build category, for a garden in Woodbridge.

Two colleagues from Notcutts Landscapes' other site, at Solihull in the West Midlands, were also among the winners: Mark Pumphrey in the Gardens from £30,000 to £50,000 category and Matt Nichol in the Gardens from £15,000 to £30,000 category.

The results mean that the Notcutts Landscapes team has now chalked up a total of 23 successes in the APL Awards since they were first introduced in 1998 to recognise excellence in landscape design and construction and provide the public with a measure of quality.

“Winning four awards this year is a great honour for the whole Notcutts Landscapes team,” said Jason Lock, Notcutts Landscapes director, who attended the presentation ceremony held at the Birmingham Botanic Gardens.

“The categories that we have won reflect the breadth and depth of projects that we undertake. It is important to us to maintain the highest of standards in all that we do - winning these national awards confirms that our work is among the best in the country.”
