This Year’s National Landscape Award Winners Announced

The British Association of Landscape Industries is excited to announce 63 winners of the 2022 National Landscape Awards.

It is a year of multiple awards, with 13 members scooping more than one, including Accredited Contractor Nurture Landscapes receiving an unprecedented six and Wright Landscapes close behind with five. In total, 39 members were recognised with awards across 27 categories. All will now be looking to December to compete for the Principals, Specials and sought-after Grand Award at this year’s ceremony.

The National Landscape Awards’ expert Judging Panel, led by experienced Chair, John Melmoe, were joined by Chief Executive, Wayne Grills and Events Project Manager, Emily Feeney for three days of deliberation, where every entry was reviewed and scrutinised by the panel. This process is no easy task, requiring meticulous attention to detail to ensure the highest level of standards are met and recognised.

John Melmoe commented on this year’s entries: “The most difficult element of any project to deliver, is the final 5%. It is this small difference that separates average schemes from great ones. Experienced, well managed members respond to clients or programme pressures with the required resources and are determined to ensure the highest standards are maintained. During the review and deliberation process, we often comment on the elusive and, in many cases critical last 5%. We have seen some basic, relatively low budget schemes executed to a remarkable standard. We have also seen high value, iconic projects missing that vital last step. It is self-evident from the number of entries and client’s reactions over the years, that the kudos of receiving a National Landscape Award remains highly respected within the industry. This year’s entries continue to showcase the complex and diverse nature of our industry, with some truly exemplary projects.”

Chief Executive, Wayne Grills adds: “Year on year I am amazed by the skill and creativity the Association’s members have in creating exceptional spaces for their clients and this year’s winners have been no exception. Everyone on the Judging Panel feels the responsibility to ensure they are recognising truly exceptional, client focussed solutions. We are also excited to see a growing focus towards integrating environmental and sustainable solutions within the practical requirements of the project.”



Following a spectacular return to a physical event in 2021, the National Landscape Awards ceremony will once again be held at the JW Marriott Grosvenor House, Park Lane, in London on 2 December 2022. This year’s ceremony will be hosted by actor and writer Ralf Little, best known for television comedy and the roles of Antony Royle in The Royle Family and Jonny Keogh in the first six series of Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps.  He is an accomplished awards host and a charismatic and entertaining presenter.

Tickets are now available to purchase online. Visit for the latest updates and follow the National Landscape Awards on Twitter (@BALI_Awards) and Instagram (@baliawards). Members are encouraged to share their win(s) using the official hashtag #BALIAwards2022 when posting on social media. 



The team at Landscape House, the board of directors and the Judging Panel wishes to congratulate every Association member who has won a 2022 National Landscape Award and thank every member that entered this year. We extend our gratitude to our committed and loyal sponsors, including headline sponsor Green-tech, for their continued support, as well as our welcome and thanks to our new sponsors.
