Garden paving manufacturer Bradstone supported an up and coming designer at this year’s Ascot Spring Garden Show on 13-15 April.
Designed by Tom Hill of Tom Hill Garden Design based in Dorset, the show garden titled ‘On Point’ is a bold and stylish space, focusing on geometric shapes and forms. Vivid flowers and textured foliage blend with statement garden features, including inverted pyramid planters and a central water feature finished in 3D geode black tiles. Bradstone donated its popular Manzano® porcelain paving in Pearl to enhance the design and help create this dynamic garden concept.
Incorporating a distinctive and varied colour blend that creates the appearance of contemporary polished concrete, Manzano® porcelain paving is available in both plain and mosaic design flags in four colour shades, including Pearl, Black, Taupe and Grey.
Paving measuring 1200mm x 600mm was used in the show garden to minimise the visible joints creating a clean-cut uninterrupted surface, while the off-white, grey mottled tones of Manzano® in Pearl provides the perfect backdrop for the vibrant planting. Manzano® paving also has exceptional strength and durability associated with porcelain with no colour fading.
Andrew Singleton, Sales Director for Bradstone, comments: “We were delighted to be a part of the inaugural Ascot Spring Garden Show at Ascot Racecourse. What Tom and his team achieved was truly outstanding, and we’ve enjoyed seeing how he has incorporated our Manzano® porcelain paving in this project. Tom has created such a striking geometric-inspired design with bright, imaginative planting and landscaping combinations, and we hope this demonstrated to visitors how impressive and striking porcelain can be within a garden design.”
