Outstanding work by landscape architect practices was highlighted in the Pro Landscaper Business Awards held at East Wintergarden, Canary Wharf, on 8 February.

In this year’s awards, the decision was made to split the landscape architect category into two separate sections based on the number of employees.

This year, the award for Landscape Architect Practice with more than 20 employees (sponsored by British Sugar TOPSOIL) was won by fabrik limited and the award for Landscape Architect Practice with less than 20 employees (sponsored by Renson) was won by Outerspace.
