2021 Husqvarna Champion of Champions

Introducing the 2021 Husqvarna Champion of Champions: Australian Landscaper of the Year Awards, the ultimate battle of State vs State showcasing the best national landscape projects of the year.

Every year, Australia’s state-based Landscape Associations each hold a prestigious awards gala to showcase the best landscape projects within its individual state or territory.


This year, Universal Media Co (UMCo) and Outdoor Design Source (ODS) are taking it one step further with the inaugural 2021 Husqvarna Champion of Champions: Australian Landscaper of the Year Awards.

The winners from each state, across a selection of categories, will now compete in a State vs State competition for the ultimate title of 2021 Husqvarna Champion of Champions: Australian Landscaper of the Year.

The inaugural Husqvarna Champion of Champions is supported by Husqvarna (naming partner), Futurewood (presenting partner) and Grillex (trade partner).


To qualify for the 2021 Husqvarna Champion of Champions: Australian Landscaper of the Year, each individual or company must be a member of their state’s Landscape Association and have submitted a project for the state awards within one or more of the above categories. The winners of these categories in each state will automatically qualify.

The categories are:


  • Construction up to $70,000
  • Construction $70,000 -$150,000
  • Construction $150,000 – $250,000
  • Construction over $250,000


  • Construction up to $500,000
  • Construction $500,000-$1m
  • Construction over $1m


A media campaign over a six-month period will showcase the finalists across our premier media assets — Outdoor Design, Backyard & Outdoor Living and Outdoor Design Source — and via a dedicated website. Winners will be announced in April 2022.

A judging panel of industry experts from across the nation, along with a member from each of the sponsors, will adjudicate the entries and decide the Champion of Champions for each category, along with an all-important audience vote!


The winners of each category will receive a large-scale media drive across all UMCo assets, including written profiles and project photos displaying the Champion of Champions: Australian Landscaper of the Year badge.

Stay tuned for your chance to place your vote for CoC: Landscaper of the Year!
