MEDITE SMARTPLY headlined the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2022, partnering with the world-renowned show’s most decorated designer, Sarah Eberle, for the event in May.
Following on from our involvement at the COP26 UN Climate Change Conference in Glasgow, we had set our sights on RHS Chelsea Flower Show to showcase our innovative product range and commitment to sustainable building. Working with award-winning garden designer and innovator Sarah Eberle, we aimed to showcase the possibilities of engineered wood panels at the home of the world’s best garden design.
The centrepiece of the garden, which is inspired by natural vertical rock strata, was created out of MEDITE TRICOYA EXTREME (MTX), a remarkable, lightweight panel guaranteed up to 50 years above ground and 25 years in ground. It is especially beneficial in environments where humidity and varying weather are usually concerns. The structure demonstrated MTX throughout its life cycle and shows the versatility of wood panels.
Further products such as SMARTPLY STRONGDECK featured in the garden. This high-performance engineered wood, tongue and groove OSB/4 panel is suitable for the most demanding structural applications such as flooring. Additionally, the garden was secured with SMARTPLY SITEPROTECT PLUS, a pre-primed structural OSB/3 site hoarding panel ideal for securing sites or promoting brand messages to the wider public.
What happens to the garden now?
The entirety of the MEDITE SMARTPLY Building the Future garden will be reused, with a large part being donated to Andover Trees United, a volunteer-led environmental charity which works closely with schools and local authorities.
