Easigrass proudly sponsored one of the main categories at the BALI (British Association of Landscape Industries) awards held at Grosvenor House in London’s Mayfair on Friday 2 December. This year marked the 40th anniversary of the renowned landscape industry awards, which recognise BALI members who have demonstrated exceptionally high standards of professionalism and skill in the execution of a wide variety of landscape schemes.
Winning a BALI National Landscape Award is seen as the pinnacle of professional achievement for BALI members. More than 900 professionals, clients and guests, including award sponsor Easigrass, attended the prestigious ceremony.
Easigrass managing director Anthony Gallagher was delighted to be involved in the awards. He said:
“We are constantly forging great relationships with BALI members who are really appreciating the value of a high class brand such as Easigrass, as part of their offering to customers. Artificial grass is becoming a much more accepted product to be used in gardens”
Easigrass sponsored the BALI Registered Contractors and Registered Designers Joint Submission award won by ESSA Landscapes and Louisa Bell for Holly House. The 2016 judging panel was led by Greg Allen, an independent industry consultant and former senior lecturer at Writtle College.
“Our BALI Awards judges travelled the length and breadth of the country this summer to visit every scheme, including, for the first time, the design entries,” said Greg Allen. “We have all been delighted to witness some truly outstanding projects. Attention to detail, which sets BALI members’ work apart, was clearly evident in all the winning schemes, as was a thirst for innovation to resolve complex challenges faced by designers and contractors. The international entries this year are mostly on a huge scale and demonstrate the transformative nature of landscape design and construction when employed with vision and ambition.”
