A BROMSGROVE based landscape design business have won big at a national awards ceremony.

Whiting Landscape, on Wildmoor Lane, scooped the British Association of Landscape Industries National Principal Award at the ceremony, which were held in late December, at London Mayfair’s Grosvenor House Hotel.

The winning design scheme, which was submitted in the Regeneration less than £500k category, was for the Petwood Hotel, Woodhall Spa, Lincolnshire.

The Petwood Hotel is famously remembered as being the Officer’s Mess for the legendary RAF 617 Dambusters Squadron in 1944 and 1945, referred to by Second World War pilots as “A splendid place remote from battle.”

Whiting, who celebrated 40 years in business in 2017, won the prestigious Principal Award for the rebuilding of the Temple of Atalanta at Petwood; restoration works to the Terrace and long walk and the Dutch Sunken Garden; extensive new drainage and the installation of new lawns and entrance piers.
