Faced with the challenge of creating gardens at two of this year’s RHS (Royal Horticultural Society) shows, one of Europe’s leading garden designers has turned to the versatility of MEDITE TRICOYA EXTREME to help provide stand-out features.
Andrew Fisher Tomlin is well known for creating gardens and landscapes around the world that are stylish and of the highest quality. His creations at last year’s RHS Hampton Court and RHS Chelsea Flower Shows both feature the innovative, engineered timber product, MEDITE TRICOYA EXTREME and both won awards.
For the Bowel Disease UK garden for Crohn's Disease at RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show, Andrew found that MEDITE TRICOYA EXTREME was his material of choice. Used to create the distinctive boundary fencing, the highly durable product enabled him to add that element of individuality by using the centuries old Japanese ‘Shou-Sugi-Ban’ technique of charring wood surfaces.
A finalist in the RHS Chelsea Product of the Year 2016 and handcrafted by Oxford Planters, Andrew’s Stud Planter and bench was also created from MEDITE TRICOYA EXTREME along with ACCOYA wood. The collection was nominated for the sustainability of the materials, design and its innovative copper-studded band feature which repels pests such as slugs.
Commenting on MEDITE TRICOYA EXTREME, Andrew Fisher Tomlin said: “When we source materials we look for products that are well made, sustainable and have consistent quality. Proven performance is also essential and a product that can provide long-term exterior use, requiring little or no maintenance, is really good. MEDITE TRICOYA EXTREME is such a product.”
