CarbonStore is proud to be a sponsor of the 2021 Landscape Institute Awards. We are celebrating projects as part of the ‘Excellence in Horticulture and Planting Design’ award, which seeks to showcase innovation and world-class planting design.
The LI Awards are all about celebrating people, place and nature, and the variety of ways that landscape projects can connect them. Building on the success of the 2020 Landscape Institute Awards, LI Awards 2021 is doing more than ever to celebrate the exceptional contribution of landscape designers, managers, planners, researchers and more across the world.
The Awards entries will be recognised for the outstanding achievements in landscape, being judged against four main criteria: Sustainability, Value, Professionalism and Design aspects. Visit the Awards website Landscape Institute for more information.
The 73-strong shortlist of finalists, up from 66 the previous year, covers an impressive array of projects, from a £250 million car-free, low-carbon housing development in Leeds to a waterfront master plan on the shores of the Yangtze River.
Finalists include projects that improve physical and mental health and wellbeing, promote sustainability and show excellence in preserving heritage and culture. Applications have come from all sections of society, including a community project to transform a neglected cemetery in Berkhamsted into a beautiful outdoor space, complete with its own Angel of the South sculpture.
CarbonStore is proud to sponsor the ‘Excellence in Horticulture and Planting Design’ award. This award celebrates projects that demonstrate excellence in planting decisions, including showcasing high horticultural knowledge.
The Finalists in this category are:
• The London Blossom Garden: Davies White Ltd (with The Edible Bus Stop)
