Canterbury landscapers enjoyed a night of celebration recently when four of their projects won major kudos in the 2022 Landscapes of Distinction Awards held by Registered Master Landscapers.

Canterbury winners were Te Raekura Redcliffs School by Canopy NZ Ltd, Te Ara Ātea – Sensory Space by Morgan + Pollard Landscapes, Rolleston School Basketball Courts & Sports Wall by Morgan + Pollard Landscapes and a Rugby Street residential garden by Onlandscapes.

This year, 132 projects were entered into the Landscapes of Distinction Awards, which honour the quality trade, craftsmanship and expertise of the best landscapers in New Zealand.

Morgan + Pollard led the way winning the premier award in Landscape Construction and a gold medal in the Commercial
Project : Construction Over $100,000 category for work on Te Ara Ātea – Sensory Space.

The company also won the 2022 Judges Recognition Award for their work on the Rolleston School basketball courts and sports wall.

Canopy NZ LTD won the premier award in Landscape Design and a gold medal in the Commercial Project Landscape Design: Open project value and property size (Built Project) for their work on Te Raekura Redcliffs School in Christchurch.

Onlandscapes won the 2022 People’s Choice Award for their work on a residential project on Rugby Street in Christchurch. More than 5000 people voted for the People’s Choice Awards, which were open to the public to vote.

Janine Scott, CEO of Registered Master Landscapers, says the past few years have been incredibly challenging and after a very busy year it is truly great to see growth in the number of entrants and quality of entries into this year’s awards, an increase of 50 percent on 2021.

“This represents a major step forward. The landscape industry is going from strength to strength, with so much young talent entering the industry and some extraordinary projects being undertaken by businesses throughout New Zealand.”

Other landscapers from Canterbury to receive award recognition included Gill Landscapes, Goom Landscapes, Kamo Marsh Landscape Architects, Natural Habitats, Sculptural Landscapes, and Xteriorscapes Landscape Architects.

Some of these award-winning companies and designs will feature in upcoming issues of Metropol.
