UltraScape’s summer romance with the RHS

Claude Monet once famously said, “My garden is my most beautiful masterpiece”, and after their market-leading materials featured in three award-winning RHS gardens, this is a sentiment certainly shared by UltraScape.

A Silver Gilt Medal, Best Construction Award and Best Young Designer are three prestigious accolades awarded to Rachel Platt at RHS Tatton Park for her stunning ‘Covid Recovery Garden’. Designed to ‘give those suffering from long Covid an accessible, restorative space’, Rachel’s breath-taking garden featured a tree with messages of support and remembrance, transparent arbour and rain garden.

A number of UltraScape materials were used in the construction of Rachel’s Covid Recovery Garden including pro-bed HS bedding mortar, pro-prime slurry primer, flowpoint fine in Natural Grey and slipbond brick slip adhesive.

Silver Gilt Medal Award winner, Bea Tann, the youngest gardener to feature at RHS Chelsea Flower Show, used UltraScape slipbond and cempoint to install the reclaimed rough stone bricks in her ‘Enchanted Rain Garden’. Inspired by a rainy day in Manchester, Bea’s gorgeous garden features ‘robust, deep green planting with waxy textures that glisten when wet.’

Bea also used a selection of UltraScape materials at her ‘RHS and BBC North West Community Urban Garden at RHS Tatton Park – a garden designed to demonstrate how city centre spaces can be made into accessible green spaces.

Joe Swift, much-loved garden designer and TV Presenter, had the honour of designing BBC Radio 2 and The One Show’s ‘Sow Grow and Show Garden’ at 2022 RHS Tatton Park. Created to celebrate and encourage ‘growing our own’ Joe’s stunning garden featured a potting bench, raised beds full of carrots, salad leaves and potatoes, and an ‘abundance of beautiful grasses and perennials’.

UltraScape’s bedding and priming materials were used to install the paving in Radio 2 and The One Show’s eye-catching garden, which framed the beautiful wooden seating areas.

Gareth Wilson, a highly respected and regarded Garden and Landscape Consultant, advised on the design and build of each of these spectacular gardens. On working with UltraScape, he commented: “Over the last few years I’ve worked closely with UltraScape using a wide range of their products, especially when I’ve been building RHS show gardens at Chelsea, Hampton Court and Tatton, where product reliability and peace of mind are essential. Not only are UltraScape products British Standard backed but also the UltraScape team are an absolute dream to work with.  For all your all your landscaping product needs I highly recommend UltraScape.”

“Queen’s Court were over the moon with the job. We completed on time with minimal disruption to residents. We installed the flooring during the winter months, but the colder weather had no effect on the performance of Level IT Pro30 – it ticked all the boxes.”
