LRS donate to RHS Chelsea Stands

The RHS Chelsea Flower Show marks a high point in the horticultural calendar and 2018 is no exception. At this year’s show, Long Rake Spar were delighted to donate products from our Grantex collection for Chilstone’s garden in partnership with Addagrip.

Chilstone’s stand, which won 5 stars in 2017, has been designed by Ali Dempster from Sandstone Design and showcases their popular architectural stonework and hand crafted cast stone ornaments. Addagrip previously worked with Chilstone when they supplied the surfacing for last year’s show.

Long Rake Spar’s dried aggregate products have been used in the resin bound surface on the 2018 stand, creating an attractive yet practical flooring solution. The rich tones of the chosen materials have been expertly combined within Addagrip’s Terrabase Rustic Oak and Addaset Maple Gold and delicately contrast with the white and purple scheme. Opting for a resin bound system means that Chilstone will benefit from its hard wearing properties, the surface will withstand the footfall from the many visitors to the stand whilst retaining a natural looking, high quality finish.

The design of the stand gives Chilstone’s elegant architectural pieces a modern twist by bringing together classical motifs and bold colouring, whilst the installation by Addagrip provides the perfect backdrop for Chilstone’s sculptures.
