Paving products from Bradstone featured in a Gold award-winning show garden at this year’s RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show.
The garden, called A Dog’s Life, was created by award-winning garden designer, Paul Hervey-Brookes, on behalf of the UK’s largest dog welfare charity, The Dog’s Trust.
Designed to give dog owners with small gardens thoughtful design inspiration, A Dog’s Life included a number of canine-friendly features, such as sniffer tracks through herbaceous borders, a woodland area with a raised agility ramp and leaf litter amongst planting for digging and scratching.
Hervey-Brookes, said: “I’ve grown up with dogs so it was a real treat for me to be able to design a garden on behalf of The Dog’s Trust. I wanted to show how you can easily share your outdoor space with dogs, without them digging up the lawn or your precious borders.
“I also wanted to ensure dogs could enjoy a full sensory experience that was safe, with canine-friendly plants, bark they could chew and fresh water to drink. The overall effect was a design that could be realistically replicated in any garden, small or large.”
Bradstone products were used to compliment the garden’s design, including Smooth Natural Sandstone paving and edging. In addition, the garden featured bespoke granite seating and steps in a circular pavilion, designed specifically for the show garden, by Bradstone, to meet Paul’s specification. Aggregates from Bradstone were also used in the design.
