After a number of years away from the show, Burlington Stone will once again this year have its stone taking centre stage on the showgarden “As Nature Intended” at Chelsea Flower Show.
The garden has been designed by Jamie Dunstan, RHS Chelsea Gold Winner in 2011, and will demonstrate how the use of sustainable products and creative planting, can show the versatility of modern garden design and how it can succinctly harmonise with properties of the past.
The garden has beautiful Broughton Moor paving in a waterjet finish, a spectacular piece of natural Broughton Moor stone, which highlights its natural markings and Burlington’s Westmorland Green cropped walling.
The world famous show sees around 157,000 visitors each year coming to see the unique and exquisite gardens, constructed especially for the show.
For the past three weeks, Jamie Dunstan and his team have been laying and planting the garden ready for the opening of the 100th Anniversary of the Chelsea Flower Show on Tuesday 21st May.
“As Nature Intended” show garden can be seen along the Main Avenue, MA07 from Tuesday 21st May until Saturday 25th May.
