    Hope On The Horizon Garden, Chavasse VC House,  Colchester, Essex

    Contractor  True Grip Ltd
    Product - Terrabase Rustic Gold

    Newcomer Matthew Keightley of Maidenhead based building and landscaping firm Farr and Roberts scooped the prestigious People’s Choice award for his debut ‘Hope on the Horizon’ garden, designed in aid of Help for Heroes at the world famous RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2014.

    The garden has since been relocated to Chavasse VC House Recovery Centre, Colchester where Addagrip approved contractor True Grip Ltd installed Addagrip’s new innovative surfacing product, Terrabase Rustic to the footpaths.  The new product was ideal for this project as the client required minimal groundworks and Terrabase Rustic can be installed quickly, with minimum disruption and without the need for an invasive base build up.  

    A 6-10mm Rustic Gold aggregate blend was selected to provide a decorative and natural rustic looking surface, with excellent drainage, to complement the design of the garden. The seamless Terrabase Rustic path links the two areas of the garden which is divided into reflective and active space to represent the complex and progressive path of recovery.
