With the world’s most famous garden event underway last week, talented garden designers from around the globe have competed for the coveted gold medals with a number of interesting trends emerging.
This year’s Chelsea Flower Show has transported visitors across a simply magical display of gardening showmanship, including havens of peaceful contemplation, artisan themes to bold geometric designs, featuring a stunning array of plants from all over the world.
Many of the winning garden designs combined water features and elegant planting, amongst sleek sculptures and a wonderful use of hard landscaping, with landscaping designs created from a wide range of materials including wood, marble, granite, cement concrete and rocks.
For everyday gardening enthusiasts, the show provides a great source of inspiration and can help inspire many homeowners to capture a little of the Chelsea Flower Show’s perfection in their own gardens, with products like Dansand® No Weed™ helping to ensure pavements, driveways and patio areas are keep neat and tidy and importantly weed free.
With innovative hard landscaping solutions evident across many of this year’s displays, it’s also a theme that is being carried through into gardens across Britain. With homeowners’ desire to create low maintenance gardens, many are opting for an ever more diverse range of landscaping surfaces to create contemporary outdoor spaces that do not compromise on style.
“ Events like the Chelsea Flower Show can have a very positive impact on the landscaping industry , ” says Ted McLoughlin, Sales Director at Active Products, who are the exclusive distributors for the Dansand®range here in the UK. “ Homeowners inspired by the Show may seek out local garden designers and landscapers to help create dedicated areas within their own garden that may involve a combination of design features on patios, sleek pathways and extensions of their living or dining room space outdoors with the use of hard landscaping. No Weed® is a very popular solution with landscapers and garden designers because of its eco-friendly credentials and ability to prevent weeds between joints, creating a long-lasting and beautiful finish for any paved outdoor space.”
