Award of Merit

Recipient: Paul Hamilton

"Paul Hamilton's mark on the landscaping industry started early in his landscaping career, winning a Victorian title at the World Skills Competition.  He is now the owner and Director of Hamilton Landscapes, which has forged a reputation as one of the premier landscaping companies in the industry.  The success of Hamilton Landscapes culminated in a win at the 2015 Landscaping Victoria Industry Awards for Landscape of the Year.  

Paul's impressive landscaping skills and abilities have also taken him to the Chelsea Flower show, competing in both 2008 and 2010, where he was a pivotal member of the Gold Medal winning teams.

Paul has been a part of the landscaping industry for the past 14 years, and a Landscaping Victoria member for the last 10.  A member of the LV board since 2010, previously as the Treasurer and as President for the last 4 years, Paul has overseen major reform in the industry and played a pivotal role in increasing the profile of Landscaping Victoria and the push for continued professionalism. Those who know Paul would agree that he carries himself with a great deal of honour and integrity and as such, during his time as President, Paul capably led a team who held him in very high regard and had great faith in his abilities."
