A Chelsea Flower Show Retrospective
With the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2019 just one week away, our team have been busy running products to the show ground over the last few weeks and it had us feeling a little nostalgic so we took a look back at our involvement with the show in recent years. We've been lucky enough to work with brilliant garden designers & landscapers and supply them with all sorts of products from fountains to filters, lighting to landscape fabric and anything else they might have needed, including the odd box of doughnuts here and there.
We have helped specify and supply lighting for Chris Beardshaw's and below you can see various shots of his 2016 & 2018 show gardens. Both were incredible gardens with a lot of thought, time and planning put into them, with well placed lighting to emphasise the key features of both gardens. We enjoyed being involved in the 2016 garden that was later rebuilt at Great Ormond Street Children Hospital.
If you've ever been to one of Paul Willavoys talks on Ponds then you've more than likely seen the below image. An amazing shot from Andy Sturgeons 2016 Chelsea Garden. We were happy to help spec the products used to create this wonderful water feature. Andy and his team are always a pleasure to work with.
Chelsea really brings contractors, designers, landscapers together in a mutually supportive way and it always helps us build a strong relationship between ourselves and our clients. A good example is Kate Gould and we have enjoyed working her and her team over the last few years. Kate's 2017 garden featured a two story space with and incredible illuminated wall as its standout feature. In 2018, Kate's garden featured an amazing open seated relaxation zone with a kinetic floor that powered the lights. Below we can see some snaps of her 2017 and 2018 gardens.
Another customer we have also developed a brilliant working relationship with the guys at Garden Club London. Tony Woods and his team do a lot of work in small spaces, such as London gardens and their 2018 Chelsea garden was an ingenious use of small space to create a practical garden, including a fully functioning kitchen, a living wall, a dinning area, a seating space and more. Beautiful lighting design from Tony, the below photos don't do it justice.
To all the teams taking part at Chelsea this year we wish you good luck and we look forward to continuing to work with all of you going forward into the future.
