Intergrain Timber Finishes featured on Best in Show and gold medal-winning Fleming’s Trailfinders Australian Garden at the 2013 Chelsea Flower Show.
The Royal Horticultural Society’s world-famous Chelsea Flower Show in London is the Olympics of the horticultural world. The event showcases the best of Australian horticultural design and construction, and inspires others to think about best practices within the landscape contractor industry. Intergrain has featured on the Trailfinders Australian Garden, presented by Fleming’s Nurseries, since 2008.
In 2013, the ninth and final Australian Garden to ever be presented by Fleming’s made history around the world. The Australian Garden was awarded a gold medal and Best in Show, a feat never before achieved by an Australian team.
The Australian Garden, designed by sustainable landscaper Phillip Johnson of Phillip Johnson Landscapes, showcased Australia’s natural beauty and paid homage to mother nature in both form and function. The eco-design aimed to challenge conventional garden design, while incorporating best environmental practice in an urban environment.
The sunset platform, boardwalk and studio (designed by Melbourne-based architecture firm, Studio 505), perched on the edge of a gorge, were central features of the garden’s design. The deck and boardwalk were protected and enhanced with Intergrain UltraDeck, and Intergrain Natural Stain was used to transform the studio into a show-stopping design feature.
Intergrain’s water-based, environmentally-responsible timber coatings were a perfect fit for Philip Johnson’s environmental approach to landscape design. Key features and advantages of Intergrain timber finishes include
• Environmentally-friendly, long-lasting and attractive timber finishes
• Widely specified for commercial and architectural (including landscape) projects
• Made in Australia by an Australian-owned company
• Specifically designed for Australian conditions
• Water-based products emit substantially less VOCs, offering a more environmentally-responsible option without compromising on performance
Intergrain products are designed for the demands of architects and landscape architects. The attractive finishes, which are environmentally responsible and give long-lasting performance, are widely specified for commercial and residential timber projects.
All Intergrain products are supported by a full backup service of technical assistance and advice provided by trained timber-finish consultants.
