RHS Tatton is the pinnacle of the year, and their annual opportunity to demonstrate their abilities
(PRWEB UK) 26 July 2012
After a stunning 5 days at RHS Tatton, allturf.co.uk working with a range of garden designers were successful in winning three gold medals and three silver gilt medals.
The greatest success came for gardens using Wildflower Turf & Herb Mat and Wow! Grass!
For the designers, RHS Tatton is the pinnacle of the year, and their annual opportunity to demonstrate their abilities. Allturf.co.uk works closely with all their designers to ensure that they get the freshest turf delivered and specifically turf that will enhance their display and give them the best chance of winning a medal.
This year the judges felt compelled to award six medals and a best in class to designers using All Turf products. “Untie the Wind” by designer Sheena Seeks had great success winning a Gold Medal and the Best Visionary Garden with a garden that is inspired by wind instruments, the shape of sound waves and the magical qualities of music. The garden features both Wow! Grass! and the Wildflower Turf & Herb Mat in the design.
Brendan Vaughan Garden Design won another Gold Medal with “The Science of Strings” in the Orchestra Gardens category. He replicated sound waves using pieces of Wow! Grass! creating a wave effect. The garden is completed by different lengths of stainless steel wires connected to an archway showing how sound is created by altering the tension of a string.
The Orchestra Gardens category had another Gold Medal winner using All Turf products where Alan Gardner’s “Brass” garden used Festival grass in the finish. The garden is based on the sound of a brass instrument and uses brightly coloured plants and brass tubes to depict this.
Dragonfly Garden Design was given a Silver-Gilt for Jon Tilley’s Visionary Garden “Hindsight.” This depicts the effects of a GM Blueberry bush which has been planted into a standard garden and then the Blueberry takes over the garden crushing the plants inside and outside of the garden. All Turf’s Wildflower & Herb Mat represents the natural world on the other side of the garden.
Another garden in the Visionary Garden category won a Silver-Gilt medal using All Turf products, – “The Bombe” by Battison Howard Landscape & Garden Designs. The design is a tribute to the life and work of Alan Turing, based on ciphers and code-breaking, who was famous for his mathematics and computer science work specifically at Bletchley Park during the war. Both Sedum Plus Mat and Wildflower & Herb mat are used in the garden.
Phillipa Probert of Outer Spaces has won a Silver-Gilt medal for her show garden “A Taste of Ness” which represents the garden “Making Waves” which was built at Ness Botantic Gardens by Pip earlier this year. Three key elements of Ness Gardens are depicted in the garden; water, sandstone and slopes. The giant turf wave shows the slops and has been created using Wow! Grass!
RHS Tatton is a fabulous showcase for allturf.co.uk to have on their doorstep, displaying their huge product range to the full.
