Oak View Landscapes Awards

Oak View scooped a Principal Award at the BALI National Landscapes Awards 2015 for a joint BALI Contractor/Designer collaboration to extensively redesign and build a large garden for a beautiful Grade 11 listed 17th century farmhouse near Saffron Walden, Essex. The Judging Panel commented ‘this traditional Essex Farmhouse has been transformed by a powerful design that is totally in keeping with the building. An interesting selection of materials and a very good standard of workmanship by the contractor has resulted in a stunning scheme that embraces the property’.


Oak View were also winners in the prestigious Employer of the Year category at the BALI National Landscapes Awards 2015 making them 7 times BALI National Award winners.

Managing Director Paul Downer commented “Oak View Landscapes is growing as a business within a sector where there is an acute skills shortage and it has become even more important to invest in, retain and develop all staff for the future. We believe our staff are our greatest asset and we reward and recognise them wherever possible as without our staff and their dedication and loyalty we would not be one of the most respected landscape contractors in this region”.

trackdayIn December 2010 Oak View completed a hat trick of BALI National Landscape Awards, this time for hard landscaping of a fountain courtyard at Balls Park, Hertford. The Landscape Architect said “The completed project comes as close as it is possible to get to the design version. Oak View are ideally suited to these more complex projects, they are set up to respect the detail of a design”.


In December 2008, Oak View won a Principal Award at the 32nd BALI National Landscape Awards in the ‘Mainly Soft Landscaping- under 1 hectare’ category for the former Warley Hospital scheme, The Galleries. The principal award is presented to the outstanding project out of all the award winners in each category. The Awards Adjudicators described The Galleries as a “visually stunning landscape” and stated “representatives from the client group and landscape architects were unanimous in their praise for the professional delivery of this challenging contract by Oak View Management and site staff”.
