The Association of Professional Landscapers Awards 2016
Supreme Winner 2016
Awarded for work on the project ‘Brede’, landscaping the formal gardens surrounding a rare timber and brick 16th century sheep barn in the Brede Valley. The garden was designed by Marian Boswall of Marian Boswall Landscape Architects.
Steven Moody of Frogheath Landscapes said “We are absolutely delighted to have been given this award but it is very much a team effort. Frogheath’s success is largely due to the amazing collaboration between us, the designer, the specialist contractors, the suppliers and of course the gardening team who continue to maintain the high standards of the garden”
