Pro Landscaper’s 30 Under 30: The Next Generation 2022 winners revealed

Pro Landscaper has announced the winners of this year’s 30 Under 30: The Next Generation, in association with Green-tech.

The initiative recognises those aged 30 and under who are making incredible contributors to the landscaping industry. It covers a vast range of sectors including garden design, landscape construction, grounds maintenance, landscape architecture, sales and services.

Nina Mason, head of content, says: “The winners of this year’s 30 Under 30: The Next Generation are vying to make a difference and have a wider impact on the industry. Their goals range from improving and increasing sustainable practices, raising awareness of mental health and making the industry more diverse. Nearly half (43%) of this year’s winners identify as women, and many of them spoke of the importance of bringing in more women to the industry – and how they plan to do it.

“Fortunately for us, they’re also dedicated to ensuring there is a ‘next generation’ to celebrate years from now. Amongst the winners, you’ll see founders of the Young People in Horticulture Association, ambassadors of GoLandscape, those who have gone into mentoring and those who plan to teach others the skills and experiences they have learned.

“There is some extraordinary talent across our winners, so congratulations to the class of 2022!”

Kris Nellist, managing director of Green-tech, says: “Congratulations to all winners of the Pro Landscaper’s 30 Under 30: The Next Generation awards. It is a significant achievement and one which will help springboard careers.

“As the managing director of Green-tech I am proud to sponsor these awards which recognise and celebrate the exceptional talent of the younger generation within our industry. A career in landscaping, horticulture, arboriculture, or garden design is a worthwhile and respected choice. By running these awards, Pro Landscaper provides the opportunity to raise the profile of these sectors; and those that enter demonstrate first-hand the opportunities available. The winners are great advocates for what can be achieved, and they have the perfect platform to encourage other younger people within the industry to also aim high.”

The awards ceremony will be held at FutureScape on Tuesday 15 November at the ExCeL London.
