Our New Zealand counterparts, Landscaping New Zealand, held their biennial landscaping awards presentation night on the 6th of August.
The PlaceMakers Riccarion Landscapes of Distinction 2016 Awards recognise excellence in the categories of Landscape Design, Landscape Construction, Landscape Horticulture and Garden Management with bronze, silver and gold awards. A number of Premier Awards are also given for outstanding projects.
The judges of these awards were particularly looking for sensational use of space and supreme quality of design, construction and planting. The entries were inspiring and wonderful examples of gardens that are used every day.
The gold medal winner of the Landscape of the Year 2016 award was the 'Green Residence' garden created by Goom Landscapes of Christchurch. The judges were particularly impressed with the innovative design, interesting composition of landscape elements, the masterful command of asymmetric balance and the elements of interlocking and overlapping features that give the viewer a visual compositional feast.
