Landscaping Retaining Wall Blocks Used To Construct the Pond that Won Best Show Garden – Chelsea Flower Show 2017

The best show garden was awarded to James Basson for the M&G garden at the 2017 RHS Chelsea Flower Show. The inspiration for the garden came from a visit to Malta where James visited an abandoned limestone quarry.

“I am absolutely thrilled to have won best in the show for the first time,” Basson said. “It is an incredible feeling and a testimony to the hard work of the whole team.”


BlockWalls was contacted by Peter Harkett from PH Landscaping. He was looking for a construction solution to build the garden pond that was structural, fast to build and economical.

Blockwalls quickly put some ideas together on a 3D drawing. A few months later the client came back to place the order.

During the manufacturing process, the designer changed the concept. Blockwalls quickly adapted and designed a number of bespoke blocks. Blockwalls worked around the clock as time was passing quickly.

The blocks arrived on site on time for the construction, and there were no hiccups during the construction process. Blockwalls supplied a full set of workings drawing to help the site construction team.

Jonathan Quinn the CEO and owner-founder of Blockwalls said “We are committed to delivering projects on time, to budget and to the highest quality standards. We will go the extra mile to make sure our projects deliver customer satisfaction.

Landscaping retaining wall blocks by Blockwalls are becoming the best selling product for the company. There are many ways to use the blocks. Blockwalls have developed a number of design solution using Landscaping retaining wall blocks. Visit our product ideas page to learn more >
