JACKOBOARD®, the market-leading brand of construction boards and tiling backerboards from BEWI, has helped notch up a major win at this year’s Chelsea Flower Show.
Working with the multi-award winning G.K. Wilson Landscape Services led by Company Director Gareth Wilson, JACKOBOARD® products have been a key element in the RBC Brewin Dolphin Garden, which has won a Silver Gilt Medal at the Show.
Designed by the celebrated garden designer Paul Hervey-Brookes, the garden features walls down two sides (totalling 90 square metres), which are tiled with 10mm Caledonian Stone Dover Taupe porcelain wall tiles 1m x 1m in size.
With the use of a diverse range of plants which themselves cost £45,000, the garden was designed to appeal to a young couple with a lifetime theme. It created an absolutely stunning impression and was a worthy winner at this year’s Show. The combination of the walls, the porcelain paving, water features and ceramic sculptures – and of course the amazing floral displays, ensured that the RBC Brewin Dolphin Garden would create the best possible impression with the judges.
JACKOBOARD® XPS Construction Board provided the ideal backing for the tiling work, due to its high bond strength, high weight supporting, lightweight and waterproof characteristics and the fact that it is very easy to cut and shape on site creating no dust or other mess.
“Our landscaping team are specialised in helping clients achieve the garden design and landscaping themes of their dreams. We went with JACKOBOARD® following an industry recommendation,” says Gareth Wilson, company director of G. K. Wilson Landscape Services. “We were advised that the company was reliable and good to work with. That has certainly turned out to be the case – and that is at least as important as the quality of the products, which cannot be faulted in our experience. I would like to thank JACKOBOARD® very much for their support in sponsoring us and also congratulate them for being a part of our success.”
