A residential project on Rugby St in Christchurch has achieved success in the 2022 Landscapes of Distinction Awards.
Nationally, 132 projects were entered into the awards held by Registered Master Landscapes. The awards celebrated the quality craftsmanship and expertise of the best landscapers in New Zealand.
The winning projects represented the top echelon of landscape design and construction in the country.
Landscaping business, Onlandscapes, was behind the Rugby St design. Their work won the 2022 people’s choice award.
More than 5000 people voted for the award, which was open to the public.
The Rugby St project was designed for empty nesters and created with order, privacy and serenity at the top of the wish list.
“They wanted a full makeover, leaving only the existing Maple tree and perimeter hedging,” Ollie Newman, of Onlandscapes, said.
“It was their preference for it to be simple and structured so they could enjoy the outlook both during the day and night. It was a privilege to construct this project, and an honour to work with such outstanding clients.”
Chief executive of Registered Master Landscapes, Janine Scott, congratulated all the winners and said there was a 50 per cent increase in the number of entrants this year.
“This represents a major step forward,” she said.
“The landscape industry is going from strength to strength, with so much young talent entering the industry and some extraordinary projects being undertaken by businesses throughout New Zealand.”
