Despite the horrid weather the Yorkshire Landscape community toughed it out last Tuesday 11th June to gather at the Leeds City Hilton Hotel to be inspired, network and vote live on the evening and then celebrate the winner of the Leeds Landscape Project of the Year Award.
Specifi Leeds saw the landscape and design professionals from across over 30 Yorkshire based businesses come together to enjoy inspiration from our keynote speaker Dusty Gedge, network over drinks and peruse a bumper crop of awards entries before peers placed their vote live with winners announced on the evening over dinner.
Unlike many other awards these are voted for by peers LIVE on the evening and every vote cast had the additional positive effect of planting a tree for our charity partner Tree Aid, the evening’s votes generated 120 trees towards Specifi’s 5000 tree target over the year.
The eventual and most deserving winner on the evening voted for by their peers was DLA Design’s Pop Up & Play project. They were also joined by 2 Highly Commended projects, Urban Wilderness’ St. Helen Moorish Stitch project and Smeedon Foreman’s Herten Triangle Retail Park project.
