‘Faultless’ landscape scheme wins an award
A LANDSCAPER from Hitchin has planted himself a prestigious national award, by leading the way in a private garden scheme that was highly commended by competition judges.
John Wyer, who led the project for Tring based company Bowles and Wyer, won the ‘Grand Award’ at the British Association of Landscape Industries (BALI) ceremony.
A large private garden scheme in Surrey clinched the prize, and was described by judges as “an exercise in perfection” and “faultless”.
“It is a real honour to be given this accolade. To achieve that quality there has to be an absolute dedication from everybody involved,” said John.
“It is a tribute to all the people that worked on the project and also to the backing of the client, who really wanted to achieve the best.”
