We supplied two of our rustic half-barrel planters for The Trailfinders South African Wine Estate garden designed by Jonathan Snow The winelands of South Africa’s Western Cape are instantly recognisable and strikingly beautiful. This garden is a snapshot of a traditional South African wine estate. A charming Cape Dutch homestead with a terracotta-tiled terrace leads down steps into a formal, romantic garden, then through a gate to a vineyard. Beyond the vineyard is a representation of the wild and beautiful fynbos landscape. Stewart Landscapes wanted planters that would fit in with the feel of the garden. Made from genuine Irish whiskey barrels, they had the desired aesthetic that was needed for the garden made to look like a wine estate house built in 1761. If you were looking for a cleaner, more modern look we have available full and half French oak wine barrels that will silver with time.
We were very fortunate to have been invited to go to RHS Chelsea this year and were really impressed by all the gardens and exhibits. It was very rewarding to see the finished gardens that we were, in some small way, involved with. We felt the corten steel used in the Hillier Stihl Inspiration and Rae’s Space To Grow gardens are perfect examples of how the colour of the steel compliments and balances the lush greens of foliage in any garden.
