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.
It was with mixed emotions that Burlington Stone thanked Terry Armistead, Production Manager, for his dedication to the business over the past 48 years and to wish him well in his retirement at a special party on Friday 5th May 2017. Having joined Burlington Stone at the age of 15, Terry has played a key role within the production facility at Kirkby-in-Furness. The vast knowledge and experience he has gained over the past 48 years, along with his “can-do” attitude means he will be greatly missed by colleagues and customers alike. Luckily, Terry has kindly agreed to continue to work for Burlington for a couple of days per week.
It is with delight that Burlington Stone’s Westmorland Green flamed paving has won the Landscaping Category at this year’s Natural Stone Awards 2016. Working together with Hardscape, based in Bolton, Burlington Stone supplied their Green natural stone for an integral part of the refurbishment of the Deansgate – Castlefield Metro Station project in Manchester.
Her Majesty The Queen has officially opened a new £15m National Heritage Centre for Horseracing and Sporting Art in Newmarket, where many of her own horses are trained and stabled.
Ten years of planning has gone into the new centre, which includes Burlington Stone’s Westmorland Green flamed paving in the internal and external walkways.
