It’s Time for the 2016 Grandies!


The Grand River Natural Stone Hardscape Awards are back for 2016!

And if you have a particular hardscape project you’d like to show off (and have our panel of judges consider), we’re accepting entries until Saturday, December 31.

Grandie winners will be announced in March at the 2017 Landscape Symposium.

So grab your camera, snap a picture and submit your entry!

And good luck, too!



Homeowners and contractors alike are encouraged to participate in the 2016 Grandies.

Just like last year’s Grandies, the 2016 Hardscape Awards will be awarded across the following categories:

  • Best use of Permacon
  • Best use of Water
  • Best use of Fire
  • Best Overall Project

Last year’s winners were extraordinarily impressive.

And we can’t wait to see what you have in store this year!

How to enter

We have three ways for you to submit your entry:


In person

Upload your pictures to a USB stick and deliver them in person to any of our four locations (Kitchener, Stoney Creek, London & Fergus)




On Facebook

Via email

We have a special email account set up for the Grandies: [email protected]. When sending your pics, make sure to include what category you’re entering them in.


And one last thing: photo quality counts. So use the best possible camera you have when snapping your submission.

Got more questions about the Grandies?

Grandie time is exciting.

It gives you a chance to showcase the excellent projects you’ve completed with landscaping supplies from Grand River Natural Stone.

And it helps others get inspiration for their own upcoming projects.
