Congratulations!
Landscape Awards of Excellence Winners
 
Each Year the BC Landscape Awards of Excellence program honours some of the high quality work being done by landscape professionals throughout the province.
The 2015 Winners are:
 
 Para Space Landscaping Inc.

This 36th floor condo patio provides plenty of living space and amazing views. The challenge was to create a personal oasis in the city without obstructing the scenery. Thus use of stone pavers, crushed lava rock and basalt boulder helped bring a more natural feel to this semi formal design. Careful placement of pots and select plantings help to soften this inner city hardscape.

Paraspace back yard

Para Space Landscaping Inc.
The idea behind this garden design was to create separate spaces to relax and enjoy the garden unified by the mix of natural and precast materials. Soft blues, tans & whites were used to generate a calming tone throughout. From the low seating walls to the verticality of the arbors, both combined to bring depth and scale to this small garden.

Landscape 2000 Ltd. Landscape2000
Living for over a year in a sandy desert and concrete jungle, the owners decided to create a liveable space. This project included a limestone patio, multiple water features, fire-pit, entrance stairs, and plantings. This is now an outdoor oasis.

This is Landscape 2000 Ltd’s 6th win in 5 consecutive years. In 2012, they had two winning projects and one of those being the coveted Grand Winner which is only handed out in special circumstances.
