The LI Awards are presented to landscape professionals in recognition of their outstanding work, and to encourage excellence. Every year, the LI applauds those working on the most innovative projects to have shaped, restored and protected the natural and built environment.
The awards shine a spotlight on the exceptional work of a diverse group of landscape professionals including landscape architects, designers, managers, planners and researchers.
James Langdon, Tilhill’s senior landscaping contracts manager says: “We are delighted to sponsor the award for ‘Excellence in Flood and Water Management’. It is a perfect fit with our forestry expertise and status as Woodlands For Water advisors, offering landowners with expert advice and assistance in preparing high quality, environmentally compliant woodland creation applications which will help to improve water quality and reduce flood risk in key areas.
“We are looking forward to being able to reward the best quality winner.”
Entries to the awards close July 17th.
