'Brian's leadwork and attention to detail is legendary' Andy Marshall, Managing Director, BBC Magazines.
It took our hard-working team of six (plus one very patient forklift driver) three long, hot days to transform the contents of a 40-foot artic into the sedate, calming oasis that is the 'Gardens Illustrated' Show Garden.
The project - to bring to life George Carter's opulent topiary design at the grand entrance to the show's central pavillion - has involved the deployment of 4 tones of shingle, 3 tons of lead (23 custom-made planters and two bespoke fountains), 32 prime topiary & architectural plants, two benches and untold gallons of water (mostly drunk by the crew!)
'It's lovely!' Alan Titchmarsh
'Hard work, but - standing back now with a glass of champagne in hand - it's all been well worth it for the quality of the space we've created and the comments we've already received - and the show hasn't even started yet!' Brian Turner
