Marshalls gets a soaking on TV
Published: 21 July, 2009
WEST YORKSHIRE: Hard landscaping manufacturing company Marshalls has challenged Scotland's premier TV garden show, Beechgrove Garden, to create a big splash to demonstrate the effectiveness of its domestic permeable paving.
The programme, which airs on Wednesday 22 July features a step-by-step installation of Drivesett Argent Priora paving.
In a dramatic finish to the piece, the Beechgrove Garden team fill the bucket of a three-ton dumper truck with water and tip it on to the 40m2 driveway.
This equates to approximately 1100 litres of water saturating the space – well in excess of a 100-year storm – all in a few seconds.
Find out how the paving fared by tuning in at 19.30 hours on BBC1 Scotland (viewers south of the border, see digital channel 971).
