KLC Alumnus, Peter Reader, Shortlisted for Pro-Landscaper Business Award

Published:

KLC would like to congratulate Peter Reader (Peter Reader Landscapes) for being shortlisted in Garden Design Category for the Pro-Landscaper Business Awards.

This award is created to celebrate the one-man bands, this category is a fantastic opportunity to prove that you don't need a team of staff to achieve great things. If you are running a successful Garden Design business single-handedly then enter this category and shout about it to your industry peers and colleagues and get the recognition that you deserve.

The Pro-landscaper Award are in their 3rd year and look to highlight, champion and reward garden and landscape businesses. These awards take into account a holistic view of the whole business from organisational measures, relationships with clients, relationships with suppliers, awards and what you contribute to the wider sector; and of course recognition of good design or build.

Peter graduated from KLC’s Garden Design Diploma with Distinction in 2011. He has worked as a sole trader garden designer since 2012 covering north London largely with projects also completed in Kent, Surrey, Essex and Herts. Peter has won 2 Silver Gilt medals at RHS Hampton Court in 2012 and 2013 as well as winning the People’s Choice Award (Small Garden) at the 2012 Show. Peter became an MSGD in 2018 and is now on the SGD Council with the lead for supporting the delivery of postgraduate education and support to new designers.

Peter Reader shared his excitement and view of this shortlisting, “For me one of the exciting things is that in the Garden designer Award they are looking to champion the ‘Sole Trader’ end of the market which actually makes up the majority of garden designers and the majority of clients experiences of having their garden designed. In a world of Chelsea Gardens and glossy garden magazines it is great to have an award that really looks at the people who do most of the work that clients will see and experience.”
