Landscape Awards of Excellence

Be a part of one of the most prominent events in the Professional Landscape Industry.

The BCLNA recognizes the high standard of expertise in the landscape trade through the annual BC Landscape Awards of Excellence. These prestigious awards recognize the year’s best in creating exceptional gardens and honour the outstanding skill and workmanship of BC’s landscape professionals in various project categories.

Each year, landscape firms submit their best installation, maintenance and design projects of the season, ranging in size from $5,000 to over $120,000. These projects are evaluated against rigorous criteria, rather than against each other, by a panel of highly accredited judges. Entries are submitted in one of the following categories: Installation, Design, Maintenance, Small Space Gardens, Unique Features, or Interior-scaping.
