We are really pleased to announce that the Family Monsters Garden, which features our bespoke bench, won Gold Medal for Best Artisan Garden at 2019 RHS Chelsea Flower Show! This is the second year in a row we have featured in an award winning garden design at the RHS Flower Shows. The pictures show designer Alistair Bayford from idverde UK who designed and constructed the garden receiving the award and also showing the Duke and Duchess Of Cambridge around the garden.
Having our work displayed at such events as the RHS Chelsea Flower Show and RHS Tatton Park is often a proud moment for us. This year we were commissioned to produce a bench for the Family Monsters Garden which has been unveiled today ahead of the opening of the Chelsea Flower Show tomorrow Tue, 21 May 2019 – Sat, 25 May 2019.The Family Monsters Garden is located at Stand 567 and is designed by @alistairbayford - sponsored and built by @idverdeuk for @family_action and the Family Monsters Project. The garden shows the pressures faced by every family and the journey families take to face these challenges. The garden is a place where people can come to get their family monsters out in the open, reflect and face their pressures together.
We are really looking forward to the RHS Chelsea Flower show 2019 open from 21st of May to the 25th of May. Our bench will be featured in The Family Monsters Garden by designer Alistair Bayford from idverde- Europe's leading provider of grounds maintenance services and landscape construction projects who build and maintain many award-winning landscapes for large scale clients. If you are heading to the Chelsea Flower show then make sure you head over to see our wooden bench in the Family Monsters Garden. The Family Monsters Garden represents the pressures faced by every family including financial problems to health and wellbeing issues, and from lack of time together to problems with communication and resolving disputes. The garden has been designed in the form of a spiral path surrounded by different kinds of trees including a pine tree that isn’t afraid to show it's not perfect. These trees represent the different generations of a family and how family monsters can affect anyone regardless of age. At the centre of the garden is a family space, where all come together to reflect, get their pressures out in the open and gather strength to face them together. The centre space consists of a pool of clear water that offers reflection and perspective and our bench where family members can sit and come together and reflect on their journey. We thought it was about time we showed the bench's journey from start to finish which from solid wood transforms into a wonderfully curved and engraved seat.
We are very excited to be making some new wooden benches for the grounds of Swinton Park Estate who are a long standing client of ours. Swinton Estate is a prestigious English country castle hotel in Swinton near Masham, North Yorkshire and is set in 200 acres of parkland, lakes and gardens where guests have access to rivers, reservoirs, moorland, dales, and beautiful countryside bordering the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The castle is a Grade II listed building and we hope our new wooden park benches will be very much at home here in the estate grounds and used by many tourists and visitors.
Creating one of our wooden benches such as the Mendip bench is, as always, a very considered process by our skilled craftsmen. But for something a little different Luke decided to record himself assemble this wonderful bench in a matter of minutes!
Here's a quick video of our CNC (Computer Numerical Control) machine in action engraving a panel from a piece of wooden garden furniture. This really is a great piece of kit we have and it can engrave with ease any font, design or emblem in to wood. The CNC machine works by reading a design from a computer file and can handle both vector and bitmap image files. It can even handle different tones by cutting to a deeper depth for darker tonal areas, the sky really is the limit!
Barry, one of our very earliest customers who bought a bench from us over 20 years ago was on holiday in the North West of Scotland when he saw our five Lutyens benches in Inverewe Gardens that we supplied in 2012.
