Landscape Award Winners
Awards are landing in the hands of local landscapers. Carlie Wacker finds out who got the gongs.
The 2021 Landscape Queensland Construction Excellence Awards was a celebration of the finest in green entrepreneurialism and creativity.
The awards program has been recognizing our talented Queenslanders for 38 years and it’s in recent times that the Sunshine Coast has pushed the competition to its peak.
In fact, seven of the winning projects were from the Sunshine Coast including category-winning entries by Living Style Landscapes and Earth Creation Landscapes, both with four awards; and Contemporary Landscaping, Ausplay Playscapes and Evolve Environmental Solutions, each receiving one award.
Landscape Queensland CEO, Mark Sorby said “it has been an extremely busy year for the landscape industry across Queensland.
“With consumers pouring money into home renovation, the backyard space had become a priority for many as they create their own private havens to share with family and friends,” he said.
“To this backdrop, this year’s industry awards program again showcased the high-level skills and professionalism of Landscape Queensland members.”
Our local landscaping legends wowed the judges.
Earth Creation Landscapes won the highest accolade of Queensland Residential Landscape Construction of the Year for their project in Seaview Terrace, Sunshine Beach project with the judges saying “this landscape is a demonstration of exceptional craftsmanship! Where every joint line, every screw fixing and each component was meticulously measured, considered and executed in the most precise and effective way. A truly stunning landscape that extols the skills of the landscape contractor.”
Also in Sunshine Beach, judges awarded a Living Style Landscapes project for Residential Landscape Construction, $250k Plus and said it was
a “stand-out… In what would have been a complex logistical negotiation, the landscape has been constructed to the highest of standards… pioneering achievement for residential landscapes where the seamless visual flow into the natural surrounds, belies its complex underpinning”.
That project also took out the award for Landscape Architect Designed Construction.
These awards recognise and showcase brilliance in landscape design and construction that make homes a haven.
