Kris Kennedy, owner of BALI Registered Contractor Spruce Landscapes Ltd, has built a second award winning garden , this time, for David Keegan Garden Design, having worked with Andy Kirman from Kirman Design earlier in the year building an exquisite show garden that was on display at this year’s SouthPort Flower Show in August.
Manchester based Garden Designer David Keegan, along with Kris and his team from Spruce Landscapes Ltd, entered their scheme into this year’s Northern Design Award competition, winning The Residential Landscaping Design Award for their private residential ‘The Eco Garden’ in Worsley.
The Northern Design Awards serve to recognise, reward and celebrate excellence across a broad range of categories, bringing together architects, designers, property developers and retailers in a celebration of northern design and style. To win a Northern Design Award is a high achievement as they are voted for exclusively by leading industry experts.
‘The Eco Garden’ perfectly exemplifies David’s approach to garden design, which is very much rooted in designing and creating spaces that are not only user-friendly but set out to enhance the natural environment in ways that’s best protect and promote wildlife-friendly spaces. David is committed to low maintenance and low environmental impact areas where reclaimed materials are used as much as possible. Part of this approach is also reliant on working organically and encouraging clients to use organic methods of maintenance once a project is completed and signed over.
David chose to work with Kris from Spruce Landscapes Ltd, who have over 15 years experience providing all hard and soft landscaping services, working on both private and commercial projects within Manchester and surrounding areas. Spruce Landscapes Ltd are a professional and committed team who aim to provide a high standard of workmanship and good working relationships with their clients.
This year the ceremony was held at the Royal Armouries and New Dock Hall in Leeds and was hosted by Wayne Hemingwayof Red or Dead fame along with compère George Clark from the Restoration Man TV show.
The event, entering its 14th-year is held in a different northern city each year.
