Landscape Awards of Excellence
The BCLNA recognizes a high standard of expertise in the landscape trade through the annual BC Landscape Awards of Excellence. These prestigious awards recognize the year’s best in creating the exceptional gardens and honour the outstanding skill and workmanship of BC’s landscape professionals in various project categories, ranging from $5,000 to more than $120,000.
In late summer each year, landscape installation, maintenance and design firms submit their best projects of the season. These projects are evaluated against rigorous criteria by a panel of highly accredited judges who are selected from various sectors of the horticulture industry, including municipal/public gardens, nurseries, landscape companies, landscape architecture firms, educational institutions, garden communications and garden centres.
We want to express our sincere gratitude to all the participants and sponsors of the British Columbia Landscape Awards of Excellence 2023 on behalf of our dedicated members, and our expert awards committee.
