MEDITE SMARTPLY garden wins Gold at Chelsea25 May 2022
The MEDITE SMARTPLY Building the Future Garden has won Gold for Show Garden and Best Construction at this year’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show
Designed around the theme of sustainability, the gold medal winning Show Garden, MEDITE SMARTPLY Building the Future, is the company’s first ever show garden at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show in partnership with multi-award-winning landscape architect and innovative garden designer Sarah Eberle.
The garden, constructed by Landform Consultants, highlights the possibilities of engineered wood panels and the brand’s commitment to sustainable building at the home of the world’s best garden design. It has encouraged show visitors to think outside the box in how innovative engineered wood panel products can contribute to the future of sustainable landscapes and buildings.
The result is an astounding achievement for Ms Eberle, who is celebrating her 20th Gold Medal win at Chelsea – the most decorated designer in the show’s history.
“It’s incredible! When I look back and I remember that first gold, it’s still as exciting getting a gold medal today,” she said. “Creating this garden was a huge challenge and I wasn’t really sure that we as a team could pull it off, but we did! The response from the public has been phenomenal.”
“The creativity and effort put in by everyone involved with our Chelsea display never ceased to amaze me,” added Chris King, managing director of MEDITE SMARTPLY – commercial.
“Winning both Gold Medal and Best Construction is a brilliant achievement and confirms the limitless use of our products. It’s giving visitors to the show some great ideas about how they can contribute positively to the environment in which they live or work.”
The garden will be donated to Andover Trees United, with the main structure being relocated to a local school in Andover.
