CopperTEC at The RHS Chelsea Flower Show

CopperTEC at The RHS Chelsea Flower Show

We were lucky enough to work with a client to develop copper plated benches and a grand, patinated copper archway to add weathered, industrial notes to their garden design. The Chelsea Flower Show is a prestigious event, renowned worldwide for the innovative and adventurous creations of its contributors. It is certainly the most celebrated event of its kind in the UK, with  thousands upon thousands taking time to visit the gardens and displays within the grounds of the Royal Hospital Chelsea. The show is a key event in any horticulturalist’s calendar, running for five days in May, and officially signalling the beginning of Summer for many!


The Brewin Dolphin Garden

We worked with the designers of The Brewin Dolphin Garden at The Chelsea Flower Show to create the copper plated benches and patinated copper archways featured in the project. The garden took a silver-gilt medal in the prizes, commended for its fresh, green planting, complimentary copper features, and generous paths and structures. We were happy to assist with this project and honoured to have played a part in their success.


Continued Success

The following year, The Brewin Dolphin Garden continued its winning streak, taking gold for the design by Darren Hawkes Landscapes, built by Bowles and Wyer with Wheelbarrow. We were really pleased that the Brewin Dolphin team’s exciting and inspiring work was recognised with the highest honour, congratulations again to them!


Copper Plating For Horticultural Design

Copper is a great material for garden design – as you can tell from its recognised impact at RHS Chelsea! With a variety of finishing effects at our disposal, copper features can be made to shine with pristine polish in the sun, or accent the greenery of a lush garden upon accelerating the oxidation process to deliver a beautiful blue-green tone. Copper can be used in all areas, from small light features to illuminate key sections, to statement arches, sculptures or walls. Whatever your idea, we will work with you to make it a reality!


As you can see, at CopperTEC we have experience working with the best in the business to create copper plated pieces for use in gardens – public and private. We take pride in our work and how it is used by our different clients.
