Build-up for Chelsea is but a few weeks away, but the time before Build-up is just as important. We’ve had countless meetings and site visits checking through all the materials to be used in the garden and now is also the time to test things, agree finishes and prepare the structures.
The Blue Water Garden features a unique Trulli style pavillion structure. We’re working with Welding Mobility again this year (they worked on the structure for the pavillion in the Australia Garden 2011) and they’ve been busy fabricating the steel structure for the building, which will be ready to drop into place when we start the build.
The finished steel structure will be delivered to the Chelsea Show ground at the beginning of May. It will then be clad in stud work and a Monocouche render applied.
The roof is going to be installed by dry stone specialist Andy Lowden. Andy has been assembling pieces of stone as an example to show how the finished effect will look.
