Another great year in Landscaping – Awards of Excellence 2014, WA
2014 was another great year for Deep Green at the LIAWA awards, winning the Contractor Award for Excellence for our work on Globe Court Landscaping Rejuvenation project. We also received awards for our works on the Fiona Stanley Hospital project and Product of the year finalist for our Vertical Garden/ Green wall systems.
Awards of Excellence 2012, WAWe were delighted, earlier this year, to win the LIAWA Contractor Award for Excellence, for our work on the Raine Square Shopping Centre. It’s a prestigious project that we are very proud to boast as part of our portfolio. To win acclaim from the state’s most prominent landscaping association is a huge added bonus. The Awards evening was a wonderful showcase of new ideas, talent and ever developing new standards. At last year’s event we came away with a real boost from the recognition we received (best new comer and best overall project – (see below for details) but also from the goals that we were inspired to set ourselves, for the year ahead, for excellence in maintenance, as well as construction.
One of those goals was to achieve maximum impact within strict time allocation, for our commercial clients who really appreciate the minimisation of ongoing costs. The commendation we received at the awards for the maintenance of Aurora Apartments was a great indication that our efforts are paying off, as well as a great follow up to winning an award for landscaping construction, at the same complex in 2011.

An awesome effort was made by our team this year, with mulching, pruning and general upkeep. They did a great job maintaining the dripline filters, and the beautiful lush lawns are the real applause for that.
Commercial Landscaping Awards
Commercial/Civic Contractor Award – Winner – Raine SquareThe project fell into the ($500,000-$1 Million) category, and it was wonderful to win recognition for this very urban project that came with all the related demands of an inner CBD project. One of the standout features of the project is the cross pavement drainage, implemented using two direction stone veneer, which works brilliantly, functionally and aesthetically. The varying steel planters got a special mention. They were tricky to instigate but the finish is very effective. Material selection was also cited as a distinguishing mark of excellence for this project.
