Accoya wood formed part of the largest show garden ever at the 2010 RHS Chelsea Flower Show.
The raised bed planters, a bench, compost bins and decking in the garden was made of Accoya wood, which combines outstanding durability and dimensional stability with the virtues of fast growing, sustainable wood. As a highly durable wood, Accoya will last at least 50 years above ground and 25 years in contact with or below ground.
Paul Clegg, CEO of Accsys, the company behind Accoya wood, told The Landscaper “We were delighted to be involved with creating such a spectacular show garden at the Chelsea Flower Show and delighted that it won a silver medal.
“The carpentry skills and knowledge fostered by The Eden Project to construct the garden furniture and decking provide a great training opportunity to nurture talent and support employment prospects for all the individuals taking part. Accoya wood has many qualities but it is specifically its Class 1 durability that makes it suitable for use in decking”
