Winner: Warrandale Industries
"Arid Garden", Royal Botanic Gardens
"Warrandale Industries’ execution of the “Arid Garden” impressed the judges with its challenging site conditions, execution of trade skills and complex planting needs.
Strict requirements within the Royal Botanic Gardens impacted heavily on every aspect of construction, and the attention to detail needed for the transplant and installation of prized cacti & succulents was superb, providing variation in heights, textures and sightlines across the landscape.
From the stonework of the steps to the custom stenciled and sandblasted seats, high quality finishes have been delivered to illustrate both an innovative result and exceptional trade skills. Well done to the team at Warrandale Industries, winners of Commercial Landscape of the Year, proudly presented by StrathAyr."
