Alpine Nurseries was thrilled to see our high quality stock featured in so many award winning commercial and residential landscapes at the LNA's 37th Annual Landscape Excellence Awards night on 27 October 2017. As a Gold Corporate Partner of the LNA for over 7 years, Alpine Nurseries dedicates around 125 acres of nursery space across four nursery locations to achieving excellence for the landscape industry. We have been growing and sourcing plants for landscape professionals for over 40 years.
Alpine Nurseries are proud of all our partners and landscape professionals. It is with particular delight to highlight some of the features of the Graham Ross Commercial and Residential Landscape Construction of the Year award winning gardens that feature Alpine Nurseries plants and trees. Many other Alpine customers were also award winners on the night.
Darling Harbour Live is a prime example of the success of large scale projects that continue to drive demand for high end commercial landscapes, meeting the 202020 Vision. For three years Alpine Nurseries diligently grew the huge quantity of large trees to meet the brief for this project. We are absolutely delighted to see Design Landscapes receive the Graham Ross Commercial Landscape Construction of the Year award. Alpine needed to consider the installation process right at the growing stage of this unique development. To simplify installation of the large 1000L trees, we grew them in oversize pallets in bottomless plastic wrap containers for easy increase in root ball size, and for accessibility during installation.
Considerations included added spacing between the trees to encourage crown development and use of a specific potting media to mimic on-site soil conditions to help with site establishment for this spectacular commercial project.
We are proud to know our trees play an important role in the visual identity of public spaces, providing shade, amenity and abundance for people to enjoy for decades to come.
We are also proud to see The Graham Ross Residential Landscape Construction of the Year awarded to Natures Vision Landscapes for the Goonoo Goonoo Station Homestead. This landscape was supremely designed to enhance the grandeur of the original 1840s character home, while balanced with the modernity of recent renovations. Alpine Nurseries flowering perennials, ornamental grasses and deciduous trees were added to this majestic property. Pyrus calleryana 'Capital' provided vertical growth for the second storey of the homestead verandah.
It is wonderful to see the talent, professionalism and dedication of our landscape industry recognised through the LNA Awards. Congratulations to all award winners this 2017, and all landscape professionals for your dedication and passion for our thriving industry.
At Alpine Nurseries we take great care of every plant in each of our four locations, and we thoroughly enjoy seeing our stock featured in outstanding projects like these and other award winning gardens.
