RHS Tatton Flower Show 'Precious Resources'

RHS Tatton Flower Show 'Precious Resources' The low cost, high impact Precious Resources garden makes use of modern materials to create a contemporary urban oasis. Tall rendered walls are topped off with coping stones and then painted to create a crisp, contemporary look.

Smooth Natural Sandstone is used to create the cladding for the wall and to surround the striking lead water rill which forms the focal point of the garden. The rill and collection pool is designed to collect water for use in the garden over a dry spell. After capacity is reached in the main pool, excess water then seeps into a bog at the foot of the garden.
