MEDITE SMARTPLY have supplied their MEDITE TRICOYA EXTREME for unique planters outside Bradmore Square in Hammersmith, London.
The areas has been newly reinvigorated by the Edible Bus Stop® and unique landscape architecture and design consultancy and Decorum London, creator and supplier of Shou Sugi Ban.
The partnership have created a destination space that encourages people to spend time and support the local businesses in the square.
To achieve this, Mak Gilchrist, Founding Director, Curator and Producer at The Edible Bus Stop said: “We used various creative interventions for this project, including a bespoke floor treatment, along with mirrored fins and bespoke twisted planters made with MTX, outdoor MDF, and Shou Sugi Ban, the distinctive charred wood, to bring some more green to the space.”
To ensure the planters functional lifespan they are lined with MEDITE SMARTPLY MTX, a composite wood product that’s guaranteed for a lifetime of 25 years in contact with soil.
“We are very pleased with the results and the clients are delighted. Bradmore Square has been completely transformed and is now a destination space throughout the week and the businesses facing onto it are seeing an upturn in footfall and clientele,” said Mak.
The overall design for the space, including the planters, was by the Edible Bus Stop, while all materials used in the construction of the planters and their accompanying fins were supplied by Exterior Solutions, sister company to Decorum London, who installed them.
Venetia Harrison, Marketing Manager at Exterior Solutions explained: “We have often used MTX alongside other treated wood products that we supply, for use in our installations.”
“As it’s a composite wood, it’s also extremely easy to machine into the exact sizes and specifications required to fit the unique “twisted” design of the planters.”
“In the past we have used MTX for this as well, as it reacts positively to the process. Whichever wood is chosen, it’s important that maintains its durability after the charring process, therefore those that are specially treated for durability and dimensional integrity are the best.”
MTX is acetylated MDF, specially formulated for use outdoors or with landscape projects.
Sustainably produced, it offers landscaper designers a wood-based, environmentally friendly alternative to plastics or metals for installations, that can up to a generation.
When not in direct contact with soil, it’s lifetime guarantee is extended for up to 50 years outdoors in all weathers.
