The competition held by Marshalls, the UK’s leading hard landscaping manufacturer, is open to all Marshalls Register contractors nationally and is an opportunity for the company to celebrate the work of its members, as well as for its assured contractors to showcase their best projects to customers and fellow landscaping professionals.
For the first time, selected Register members will be invited to judge the regional entries, along with Marshalls Regional Assessors. The results will be announced at the Marshalls Register road shows held later this year.
Regional award winners who make the national short list will form part of the judging panel for the national awards held in early 2015 and will be eligible to vote for projects, excluding those in their own category.
To enter into the 2014 Marshalls Register awards, members should contact their Marshalls Regional Assessor or Territory Sales Manager to obtain an entry form, accompanied by at least five quality digital photographs of their project.
All projects submitted must have been undertaken and completed in the period from 1st September 2013 – 31st August 2014.

Best Patio Transformation over 35m2
