Benchmark is a forward thinking company and this is demonstrated by our successful achievement of a number of industry awards and standards. We are members of the British Association of Landscape Industries (BALI), the UK’s leading association for the landscape sector. BALI was established in 1972 as the UK’s representative trade association for the landscaping sector. Their membership comprises interior and exterior landscapers and designers, grounds maintenance contractors, and companies supplying industry-related products and services. They all have one thing in common: a commitment to delivering professional excellence by continually raising standards across the industry.
We are delighted to have won a number of awards over the years and in 2010 we won the BALI Award for Employer of the Year for commitment to staff well-being and skills development, and this remains a priority for us.

We constantly strive to improve the way we work and are pleased to hold the following accreditations:
