Talasey Group solutions used to create a stunning garden for Belvoir Garden & Flower Show
Taking place within the grounds of Belvoir Castle, the inaugural Belvoir Flower & Garden Festival gave garden designers the opportunity to showcase their innovative landscaping design skills.
Chris Gutteridge, Director of Second Nature Gardens was one of the designers that attended the show, exhibiting his unique contemporary garden. We caught up with him to learn more about his creation and see how the Belvoir Flower & Garden Festival went.
Q: How did you find the show, and will you be returning next year?
A: “The day was a huge success, a true celebration of horticulture! The stunning grounds of Belvoir Castle was the perfect setting to show off my design. It was also great to appreciate the work of other designers – I will definitely return in 2019.”
Q: Why did you choose Talasey Products?
A: “Any designer wants their space to stand out and impress and I required products that could deliver on this as well as being high-quality and durable. With an extensive range of hard wearing paving products, Talasey Group’s solutions ticked all the right boxes.
To achieve the desired lok and finish I decided to opt for ‘Avorio’, Vitripiazza paving from the Anno range, as well as ‘Mallow’ Baksteen pavers from the Continental range. With my budget in mind, the Anno range offered great value for money, I was able to get high-quality porcelain and stay within my budget (which is always a challenge). Due to its versatile rectangular format, the Baksteen Continental range was ideal to create my herringbone patterned edging.”
Q. How did you find the installation process of our Talasey products?
A: “Installing the paving was a dream; quick and simple, so it enabled me to spend more time perfecting other areas of the garden. Often when it comes to putting such products in place it can often be excessively time consuming, however, the installation of Talasey’s paving exceeded my expectations.”
Q: Would you use Talasey products again in the future?
A: “Absolutely yes, no question about it. Talasey’s products were imperative to the success of my show garden. The use of handcrafted clay and vitrified Italian porcelain paving worked perfectly within the space, complementing the planting and providing a sleek beautiful finish. I will be sure to recommend them to fellow garden designers.
It was a fantastic couple of days at Belvoir Flower & Garden show, all my hard work truly paid off and I received some excellent feedback. Big thank you to the Talasey team for their support.”
Malcolm Gough, Group Sales and Marketing Director at Talasey Group said: ‘It was fantastic to have our products showcased at the Belvoir Flower & Garden Festival 2018 in such a stunning garden and we thank Chris for selecting ur products for his garden too.
