Build Center supports World Vision at world's largest flower show

Leading national builders' merchant, Build Center, is supporting the World Vision UK charity show garden at the 2011 Hampton Court Palace Flower Show by supplying £2,000 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."

Build Center has 150 branches across the UK offering a range of standard and specialist building materials and services and specialist branches in Timber, Ironmongery, Landscaping and Glass form part of the network.

The Hampton Court Palace Flower Show is the largest flower show in the world. Taking place from 5th-10th July, it is an opportunity for more than 200,000 visitors to admire spectacular garden designs and demonstrations. For more details or to buy tickets visit
