We are very please to have played a small part in Chris Beardshaw gaining a Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) gold medal this week at Chelsea Flower Show.
We were commissioned (in secret) in late 2018 to manufacture two magnet shaped glulam curved beams – these were to form part of the ‘built’ element in his garden design.
To quote the RHS: The Morgan Stanley Garden is inspired by the UK’s love of beautiful gardens and explores how to continue the tradition of creating herbaceous-rich spaces, while managing resources more sensitively.
From the original design concept, to the growing of the plants, through to the garden’s construction, designer Chris Beardshaw has considered how innovative techniques and materials can be applied to the creation of gardens to ensure waste is minimised and products kept in circulation as long as possible.
A formal, linear terrace at the front of the garden is punctuated by large topiary domes; the straight lines of the pathway gradually fragment into a more sinuous and circuitous route over the rill and through the plant rich herbaceous borders towards two contemporary relaxation pods, which offer a space to reflect.

Even for the most discrete extension, annex, home office or garden studio Glulam can provide a viable and affordable option – manufactured ‘off site’ in our workshop. Where speed of construction is a concern and a beautiful exposed timber aesthetic is your desire why not consider Glulam?
