A garden and landscaping firm has been shortlisted in the 2018 Association of Professional Landscapers’ (APL) Awards for its work in Ellon and Aberdeen.

Papillon has been recognised in two categories for its garden design and construction work.

The gardens shortlisted are for Papillon’s outside kitchen project in Ellon, under the category Hard Landscaping and a town garden project in Osborne Place, Aberdeen, which is shortlisted in the category for Projects valued between £35,000 - £65,000.

Angelique Robb, Director at Papillon said: “It was great to have the opportunity to design and construct these gardens.

“They’re both very different, but equally rewarding. The outside kitchen took careful planning, which paid off – it looks really slick, but yet it is practical too and makes for easy for outdoor living.

“The project at Osborne Place was fun too: the garden was long and thin, so it needed more interest and features to cosy it up and make it feel wider and continue the modern theme of the home into the garden. There were some super features added for interest, including a sandstone sphere and a water feature, as well as a large social area, where large cypresses echo the granite spires of Aberdeen’s skyline.

“I feel very proud of the work our team has done on these projects and I’m delighted that they’ve been recognised by APL.”

The UK-wide awards help celebrate and recognise outstanding landscaping work carried out by the association’s members.

Winners of the awards will be announced at The annual Awards Ceremony on Friday, 16 March 16 at The Brewery in London.
