Winners revealed at the Bradstone Assured Awards 2018

The most inspiring patio and garden makeovers from Bradstone’s network of Assured installers have been praised, with winners of the paving manufacturer’s 2018 national installer awards being unveiled last Friday evening.

The annual awards, which took place at The Radisson Blu in Manchester on Friday January 19, acknowledge some of the best garden landscaping the industry has to offer in design expertise and quality craftsmanship. Categories include Best Patio Transformation and Best Driveway Transformation, along with the prestigious Installer of the Year award.

The deserving winners were chosen by an expert judging panel at Bradstone, including national sales manager Peter Montgomery, and technical customer services manager – and previous owner of MB Landscaping and Paving – Mark Brown, as the team deliberating over each category.

Host Peter Montgomery announced the winners during the awards ceremony, with members of the Bradstone team presenting the trophies to the winning businesses.

Urban Earth was hailed as the 2018 Installer of the Year, with the judges unanimously impressed with owner Phil Yolland’s highly technical and inspiring landscaping designs, as well as his thorough execution and attention to detail.

Bradstone sales director Andrew Singleton commented: “Every year we are inundated with hundreds of inspiring landscaping entries and this year was no exception. It’s been fantastic to see the exceptional creativity and outstanding projects our Assured installers have been working on throughout the past 12 months.

“Congratulations to all of the immensely talented landscapers who received an award, and thank you to everyone who took the time to submit an entry. Each and every submission demonstrated fantastic examples of amazing landscape design using Bradstone products and we wish all our installers every success for a promising 2018.”
