The garden design is inspired by the promotion of health and well-being through our outdoor spaces and includes water features, which create a peaceful and relaxing ambiance, and Pomegranate trees promoting the benefits of growing fresh food at home even in the smallest of spaces. A wonderful combination of natural stone products sits alongside some truly delightful planting, inviting visitors to enter the garden and experience the quality of the products first hand.
It is the first time I have worked at RHS Chelsea and I am thrilled to have been invited to work alongside such an admirable and ethical UK company. We only have 4 days to complete our garden, and whilst it is small, it is quite intricate in places so we are hoping the weather stays on our side!
For over a century, Marshalls has been helping homeowners to achieve their dream outside space. The company offers the UK’s finest quality and most extensive range of patio and driveway products; including a wide range of stunning natural stone paving, walling and block paving options to suit any style of home.
Marshalls proudly leads the landscaping industry in the ethical sourcing of natural stone products from India. For nearly a decade the company has been working on the ground to improve the lives of Indian quarry workers and to raise awareness of the issue of child labour in this sector.
At this year’s RHS Chelsea, Marshalls is proud to be showcasing a range of its products at its stand located by the Fresh area, as well as offering advice and inspiration for how these products can be used to transform a space from the ordinary to the extraordinary.
Marshalls’ experts will also be offering advice on how to avoid cowboy builders. The Marshalls Register of Accredited Landscapers & Driveway Installers is a national network of independent professional installers. They are not employed by Marshalls, but are strictly vetted and monitored by the company to assess their levels of competence and performance.
Marshalls’ Group Marketing Director, Chris Harrop, said: “We’re incredibly excited to be at this year’s RHS Chelsea. Our stand is all about offering visitors the inspiration and information they need to transform their front and back gardens.
“We’re showcasing products which are really on trend for 2016 as well as a range of classics and also some new material types, so there really is something for everyone.
“We understand that choosing a tradesman can be a stressful experience, so as well as inspiration we want to offer homeowners reassurance by being able to recommend installers from the Marshalls Register. We recently undertook research which told us that 99.7% of our end customers who have used a Register member would recommend them to other homeowners, so by choosing a Marshalls Register member you know you’re choosing the best in the business.”
I will be at the Marshalls stand on Tuesday 24 May to answer any questions about the design.
