Written on the 31 October 2019 by Gold Coast PR Company Consulting Hall

Fast-growing Nerang-based gardening operation Skyline Landscaping has been honoured in the Gold Coast Business Excellence Awards for October.

The business, which was launched in 1991 by brothers Colin and Chris Richardson and now employs more than 400 people, was named the winner of the Construction and Trades category at an awards presentation held at the Southport Yacht Club.

Gold Coast Business Excellence Awards vice president Richard Holt said Skyline Landscape Services was now the largest privately owned horticultural, landscape and grounds maintenance company in Australia.

"After recently securing two major contracts the Sydney City Council and Vic Roads the company is now on track to employ between 600 and 700 people and to record at least 35% revenue growth in 2019-2020,'' said Mr Holt.

"It is clear to see that Skyline Landscaping is a worthy winner of one our awards and it is incredible to see what some Gold Coast businesses are achieving at national and international levels."
