Cutting edge garden designs showed a glimpse of the future at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show.
Created as part of the Chris Beardshaw Mentoring Scholarship (CBMS) as a collaboration by 2010 CBMS Scholar, Maria Luisa Medina, Chris Beardshaw and Bradstone, the urban garden showcased new cutting edge garden hard landscaping products which will influence the development of our future garden hard landscaping range.
With the aim of challenging people’s preconceptions of concrete by highlighting its sheer flexibility, creativity and sculptural qualities, the garden was framed by two stunning curved louvered walls which flowed out from a tiled solid wall to create a sinuous and light frame, and provide enticing glimpses of the lush planting within. The garden also featured a unique two-part sculpture, which when viewed at a particular vantage point in the garden unites to form a single perfect heart.
Chris said: “This unusual collaboration between designers and technical experts resulted in a truly conceptual and cutting edge design at Chelsea. Hopefully the new landscaping concepts on show offered a glimpse of what the future of garden design holds, and hopefully inspired visitors to be just as innovative with their own creations.”
Mike Leeming, Director of Sales for our Landscaping division adds: “The RHS Chelsea Flower Show sets the standard in horticulture and design so is the perfect place for us to showcase new product concepts. We believe that what we have achieved together as a team this year, does exactly that and will ultimately provide a blueprint from which we can continue to develop challenging, yet beautiful landscaping concepts for the wider market".
