Garden Design Awards & Accreditations
RHS Gold Medal, ISO Accreditation, and Bali registered
Graduate Landscapes are an award winning garden design company. We offer the finest garden design services, shown in the accumulation of awards and prizes demonstrating the capability and professional skill of each and every designer here. We were extremely honoured to be awarded a RHS Gold Medal Award and The Best Conceptual Garden at the prestigious RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show for ‘Landscape Obscured’, an immense achievement. An ingenious, first of its kind, garden design. The garden design focused on the concept of human consumption affecting the environment, featuring a subterranean mushroom garden. The design was innovative in the extreme but with the clarity of vision and dedicated landscape gardening team, we were able to bring the inimitable design from the drawing board to reality.
We are also immensely proud of our highly talented garden designer, Chris James for becoming a finalist at RHS Tatton Park Flower Show ‘Young Garden Designer of the Year’ competition, with his ‘GreEnCO Sense’ garden design. The show gardens highlighted the requirement for use of renewable resources and upcycled materials, concentrating on how they can be adapted for use within a garden, which works both practically and aesthetically. His garden creates a microhabitat as a haven for bees and other insects which allows them to thrive alongside the human impact of various man-made, recycled and sustainable features and the overall result greatly impressed the judges.
Our creativity is underpinned by rigor, excellence, and detailed process. ISO accreditation is a rarity in the landscaping world. It requires a standard of scrutiny that many companies are not ready to undertake. Not wishing to shy away from a challenge and believing in our commitment to quality, Graduate Landscapes are now accredited with no less than three ISO standards 9001, 14001, 45001.
To gain ISO 9001 a company must follow strict processes and high levels of professionalism. ISO management systems help organisations create a culture constantly engaging in self-evaluation whilst assessing processes throughout.
ISO 14001 helps organisations improve their environmental performance by reducing waste and efficient use of resources.
ISO 45001 is the gold standard for workplace health and safety and is for organizations that are serious about improving employee safety.
We are full members of BALI, The British Association of Landscape Industries is the leading trade association for all landscape professionals.
