27 awards in 10 years and Aura Landscapes is just getting started

Over the years, Aura Landscapes has consistently delivered high quality, bespoke driveways and patios, many of which have gone on to become award-winning installations.

As we look back on Aura Landscape’s first decade in business, we can’t thank our clients enough for giving us the freedom and trust to create these multi award-winning installations:


Just over a year since Aura Landscapes started, we won three Marshalls Regional Awards for a project in Bournemouth. We installed a large driveway and patio for this contemporary new build using Drivesett Argent and Granite Eclipse for the driveway, and Sawn Versuro for the patio.

This driveway was featured in the Marshalls catalogue since then until 2019!

The awards were:

  • Best Engineering Achievement
  • Best Patio Transformation Over 70m2
  • Best Driveway Over 70m2

This year brought us another Marshalls regional award and a highly commended at the Marshalls National awards.

Using Marshalls Sawn Versuro and Scoutmoor Setts, our in-house designer Mike crafted this creative patio, enhancing the garden and creating the appearance of a bigger space.

This project won the Marshalls Regional Award for Best Patio Transformation under 35m2.


2013 brought our fifth Marshalls Regional Award! This front garden was installed for a lovely couple in Southampton, using Marshalls Granite Eclipse and Drystack Walling.

At the time, Marshalls Drystack Walling was a new addition to the Marshalls range and Aura Landscapes won the award ‘Best Use Of A New Marshalls Product’ for using it in this project.


2014 was not only a year for installation awards, but was the beginning of receiving business awards for Aura Landscapes.

Our Director Paula Warman won the Entrepreneur’s Circle award for the ‘Most Inspirational Entrepreneur Of The Year’ and a Venus Award for the Small Business Category.

In this year, Aura Landscapes also won a Marshalls Regional Award for Most Creative Use of a Marshalls Product. In Southampton, this project featured Marshalls grey sandstone and blue engineering bricks.


5 years in business and 2015 was another great year for Aura Landscapes. Winning the Travis Perkins award for ‘The Best Landscaping Project In The South’, the team were very excited to meet Melinda Messenger when accepting the award – our claim to fame!

This award was for a beautiful patio in Emsworth for our clients Mr & Mrs Cruickshank, which featured Marshalls Sawn Versuro paving.

Aura Landscapes also won a hat trick of Marshalls regional awards:

  • Best Use Of Drivesys
  • Best Driveway Transformation Under 70m2
  • Best Patio Transformation Under 35m2

The driveway located in Southampton, was installed using Marshalls Casarta Slate and Drivesys Split Stone. Also in Southampton, the award-winning patio featured Marshalls Symphony Vitrified in Barley and Scoutmoor Setts.


2016 brought another business accolade, being accepted into Small Business 100. These small businesses take part in Small Business Saturday, focusing on promoting local businesses.

Aura Landscapes also received a highly commended at the APL (Association of Professional Landscapers) awards for an Italian Porcelain Patio project in Chilworth:

In this year, Aura also won a Marshalls Regional Award for the Best Driveway Transformation Under 70m2.

This beautiful driveway was installed with Marshalls Magnasetts and Driveway Setts:

For installations, Aura won three APL (Association of Professional Landscapers) Highly Commended awards across two projects:


For the second year running, Aura Landscapes won the Houzz Best In Service Award in 2018 thanks to the glowing reviews from our clients!

Aura also received a Marshalls Regional award for the Most Creative Use of A Marshalls Product.

This award-winning project was designed for wheelchair accessibility and featured Marshalls Sawn Versuro and Sawn Versuro Linear paving.


2019 brought another Houzz Best in Service award, as well as two awards for installations!

Aura Landscapes won a Marshalls Regional Award for the Best Driveway Transformation over 70m2. This driveway project in Emsworth featured Marshalls Tegula Hazelnut and Harvest Mix with Drivesett Argent detail.

The second installation award for 2019 was the APL (Association of Professional Landscapers) Gold Award in the Hard Landscaping category.

Located in Blandford Forum, this breathtaking patio complements this stately home perfectly, using Cranbourne Stone paving.

This project is also now featured in the Cranbourne Stone catalogue!


So far in 2020, Aura Landscapes has won the Houzz Best In Service Award – for the fourth year running!

This is truly a testament to our amazing clients, who have continually supported our family business for the last decade.
