Build Center supports World Vision at world's largest flower show
Published:  06 July, 2011

HINCHLEY WOOD: Build Center is supporting the World Vision UK charity show garden at the 2011 Hampton Court Palace Flower Show by supplying £2000 worth of hardscaping products.

Build Center has provided 150 bags of Postcrete, 50 bags of cement, five cubic metres of building sand and 100 timber posts from Grange to help construct the unique World Vision show garden, which will feature a dark reflective pool punctured by two striking turf domes. The design will showcase a selection of prairie grasses and perennials to add movement, texture and another visual dimension to the space.

Paul Pender, Build Center's branch manager at Hinchley Wood commented: "We are delighted to support World Vision in the creation of its show garden and cannot wait to see how the design turns out - it should certainly catch the eye of visitors based on the plans we have seen!

"Build Center has a specialist landscaping offer, with dedicated Landscaping Centers located across the UK. We provide a full portfolio of basics like paving, fencing, driveway and decking and more specialised items like garden structures, decorative walling and aggregates, which is why we were ideally placed to provide the thousands of pounds worth of products for this event."
