At the 2021 Landscape Queensland Excellence Awards, Stuart Bain cemented his place as the best of the best, reports Helen Flanagan.

It was a veritable field of champions vying for the title of Landscape Queensland Residential Landscape Construction of the Year, in fact there were 7 finalists, digging their heels in hoping for gold. 

In the lead up to the big announcement Stuart Bain and his team from Earth Creation Landscapes won Best Residential Landscape Construction (under $50K) with the creation of a yoga retreat at the front of a residence in Steven Street, Sunshine Beach.

According to the judges it was “a fine example of a small landscape being able to provide a major impact on the liveability of a space. High-quality workmanship has assured the success of this tropical sanctuary.”

The star of the night though was the work on a Seaview Terrace residence in Sunshine Beach. The proposition to make a small SE-facing rockfest more expansive and soften the landscape was unique and environmentally difficult.However, the use of a reflective pond, random sawn bluestone steppers, Pacific Crows Ash decking, mosaic tiles, an array of tropical plants, a smart irrigation system and subtle lighting, the judges said it was “executed to perfection”.  Consequently, it was awarded Best Residential Landscape Construction ($175K to $250K) and Best Residential Landscape Feature for the Helix-shaped outdoor shower. This snail shell inspired outdoor shower consisted of random sawn bluestone paving, custom made dual copper rain heads and tapware. 

The team were still trying to wipe the smiles from their faces when it took out the top gong for Residential Landscape Construction of the Year. 

“This landscape,” commented the judges, “is a demonstration of exceptional craftsmanship. Every joint line, every screw fixing, and every component was meticulously measured, considered, and executed in the most precise and effective way. The overall attention to detail and the consistent quality across all areas sees this project worthy of the title Queensland Residential Landscape Construction of the Year.” 

Congrats team – we wonder if you have come back down to earth yet?!
