Bradstone hosts annual awards dinner

Published:  06 February, 2017

The most inspiring patio and garden makeovers from Bradstone’s network of Assured members were praised at the company’s Awards dinner in January.

The annual awards, which took place in Derby on 27 January, acknowledged some of the best the garden landscaping industry has to offer in design expertise and customer service. Categories include Best Patio Transformation and Best Merchant Laid Display, along with the prestigious Installer of the Year award.

Alfresco Landscaping was hailed as the 2017 Installer of the Year, with the judges unanimously impressed with owner Alistair Peat’s commitment to exceptional customer service, strong supplier collaboration, solid sales growth and continued business development.

Toby Stuart-Jervis, commercial director at Bradstone, said: “Each year, we look forward to reviewing all the entries to explore the creative or technically challenging projects our Assured installers have been working on throughout the past 12 months. For 2017, I’m delighted to report we have seen some of the highest quality entries since the awards began.

“Congratulations to all of the immensely talented landscapers and apprentices who received an award, and thank you to everyone who took the time to submit an entry. All have demonstrated fantastic examples of amazing landscape design projects using Bradstone products, and we wish them every success for the future.”
