Janine Pattison Garden Design won a 2011 Principal Design Excellence Award from the British Association of Landscape Industries (BALI). Pattison's firm was honored for the landscape design of Dairy Farm Lodge in Dorset, U.K.
The judges' comments praised the innovation of the design: "A show stopping creative approach capturing a cool Provencal feel with a real contemporary twist. Hot olive grove plantings merge with the stunning rolling Dorset landscape beyond. A highly imaginative, cutting edge design approach cleverly capturing the 'borrowed landscape', which has been tied back to the property using sweeping wildflower meadows to blur the boundaries and anchor the design well into its surrounds. Stunning hand sculpted sandstone cladding is brought to life at night with creative mood lighting. An impressive lighting scheme adds extra 'Wow' to this design."
The BALI National Landscape Awards have been held annually since 1976, and entries are judged by a panel of award-winning practitioners, educators, and leaders from the landscape profession. Pattison's firm was recognized in the category for projects with an overall cost of more than £50,000.
"We are absolutely thrilled to have been judged by our profession to have produced the best garden design of 2011," said Pattison.
Congratulations to Janine Pattison and her team on receiving this honor!
