Finalist – APL Awards
I am very excited to have reached the finals of the APL Awards 2022. These awards are designed to recognise the high standard of landscape contracting carried out by APL registered members.
The standard of entries to the APL Awards 2022 exceeded expectations and Adam Vetere Landscape & Garden Design was picked from a record number of submissions.
Adam's shortlisted project, an Artist's Garden
ADAM VETERE LANDSCAPE & GARDEN DESIGN PROJECT, AN ARTIST'S GARDEN IS IN THE RUNNING FOR CATEGORY - APL DESIGNER OF THE YEAR
“The client, an Artist and Glass Sculptor, has an eye for bold use of colour, striking lines and forms, contrast textures, which in turn were replicated in the final design. The overall scheme has delivered life and vitality to the garden, which it previously lacked. The key was to create a feeling of intimacy and seclusion, while delivering an environment for the client to enjoy by herself or with friends and family, including the grandchildren. She is an avid gardener and loves to garden, so raised beds and an inspirational planting scheme were delivered. From a practical standpoint, I had to incorporate a large artist studio (4m x 2.5m), several seating/terrace areas, raised and sunken areas, an area for the grandchildren, which had to be coupled with an exquisite planting scheme which works hard from March - October, but retains interest and structure throughout the winter."
Adam's shortlisted project, the Ravine Garden
ADAM VETERE LANDSCAPE & GARDEN DESIGN PROJECT, THE RAVINE GARDEN IS IN THE RUNNING FOR CATEGORY - SOFT LANDSCAPING
“Inspired by The Lost Gardens of Heligan, The Ravine Garden was created to deliver a truly vibrant planting scheme which would provide interest all through the year and would increase the bio-diversity of the site significantly. The site conditions are unique with a cool, damp and shady valley floor, which graduate through east and west facing banks to the hot and dry planting of the southerly facing banks. As such, the conditions were both a challenge and a huge opportunity to blend diverse, yet fascinating planting schemes which would thrive in The Ravine."
