Gold, Gold, Silver, Silver, Watch, Watch.
Reminiscent of the Landscaping New Zealand conference keynote speaker Michael Hill, the biannual awards ceremony went like clockwork. As the gold and silver awards flowed so did the pace with the help of Haggis and a wee Dram.
The setting was the spectacular Ballroom at Larnach Castle Dunedin, the chandeliers sparkling, fires roaring, a delicious meal and of course the Haggis ceremony. These awards are a celebration of excellence and recognise the best of the best gardens, maintenance programs and construction the industry has to offer. Every garden entered involved very hard and dedicated work from their respective companies. The standard this year was very high.
As the awards were read out by Dougal Stevenson, there were two companies that kept being called. Wayne Butson of Design and Garden Landscapes won the supreme Horizon International Landscape of the year along with many other awards and Natural Habitats took 27 awards. They will definitely need plenty of picture hooks and space to hang them.
Congratulations to all winners!
