Jan. 11, 2017 -  Ontario’s green professions kicked off 2017 with the 44th annual Landscape Ontario Awards of Excellence.

More than 600 landscape professionals gathered Jan. 10, 2017 at Toronto’s International Plaza Hotel to celebrate the best construction, maintenance and design projects in the province at a gala event hosted by Breakfast Television personality Frankie “Flowers” Ferragine.

“I am thrilled once again to be here tonight to recognize the amazing work being done in the landscape professions across this province,” Ferragine said. “Each year, I am amazed by the the incredible passion and talent our profession has to offer, and the commitment to making our communities and landscapes greener and healthier spaces in inspiring.”

Gardening guru Mark Cullen received an honorary lifetime membership to Landscape Ontario for his dedication for promoting the green professions.

“Mark is a gifted communicator who has inspired thousands with his heartfelt and trusted advice,” said Tony DiGiovanni, Landscape Ontario’s executive director. “What really sets Mark apart is his integrity and his eagerness to contribute. He is on numerous committees and boards, and has given thousands of volunteer hours towards making Landscape Ontario, Canada Blooms and the landscape professions better.”

Awards are judged by industry experts according to specific criteria. If no project qualifies in an area, no award is given.
