Rugby St project wins major landscaping award

A residential project on Rugby St in Christchurch has won the 2022 Landscapes of Distinction award.

Nationally, 132 projects were entered into the awards presented by Registered Master Landscapes. The awards celebrated the quality craftsmanship and expertise of New Zealand’s top landscapers.

The winning projects represented the top echelon of landscape design and construction in the country.

Landscaping firm, Onlandscapes, was behind the design of Rugby St. Their work won the People’s Choice 2022 award.

Over 5,000 people voted for the award, which was open to the public.

The Rugby St project was designed for empty nesters and created with order, privacy and serenity at the top of the wish list.

“They wanted a complete makeover, leaving only the existing maple tree and perimeter cover,” said Ollie Newman of Onlandscapes.

“They preferred it to be simple and structured so they could enjoy the view day or night. It was a privilege to build this project and an honor to work with such exceptional clients.

Registered Master Landscapes Managing Director Janine Scott congratulated all of the winners and said there had been a 50% increase in entrants this year.

“This represents a major step forward,” she said.

“The landscape industry is going from strength to strength, with so many young talents entering the industry and amazing projects being undertaken by companies across New Zealand.”
