Chelsea Flower Show 2023

Published - 28th May 2023

Once again we were invited to contribute to one of the gardens at Chelsea with a water feature. This time the RSPCA sanctuary garden, designed by Martyn Wilson. At the core of the garden was a central blue rill, manufactured from recycled plastic sheeting (from Smiles Plastics). This clever material incorporates things like recycled water bottles, shampoo bottles (red flecks) and yoghurt pots (white flecks). Every year the RSPCA rescues nearly 4000 animals trapped or injured by discarded plastics, so the messaging of the garden was clear …. don’t litter the planet with plastic! We produced the rill in our workshops, then assisted with welding it on site at Chelsea. After the show, we will also help to move the whole garden to it’s permanent location at an RSPCA animal centre in Cheshire.
