Home Living : June 29th 2010
2 HLC - HOME LIVING: CENTRAL, Tuesday, June 29, 2010 Strength on inside » ADVERTISING FEATUREHOMELIVING While stunning architectural and landscaping design won the day for the Australian Garden at this year's Chelsea Flower Show, strength and beauty was on the inside as far as Boral was concerned. Providing the core structure for the gold-medal-winning garden was a key contribution for Boral Masonry. ''While you can't actually see our products, they are an intrinsic part of the whole structure,'' said Boral masonry retail manager, Victoria, Andy Nyberg. The 2010 Trailfinders Australian Garden presented by Flemings Nurseries, featuring an indoor-outdoor area set amid a lush tropical garden, added a unique element to the Chelsea Flower Show in London recently. The Boral products used in the display included more than 1000 concrete blocks in various sizes and about 600 render bricks. These materials were used for the construction of all walls, steps, water features, a lap pool and bar area. Mr Nyberg said these particular materials were chosen for their flexibility and strength. ''The walls in the Australian display had to be structural in order to support roofing, therefore the blocks were reinforced with steel and core-filled with concrete. ''This should be standard practice for all concrete block walls over a metre in height. Consultation by a qualified engineer should be sought," he said. ''The blocks are an affordable and durable building material for outdoor living projects such as retaining walls, seats, steps, around water features and pools, and the increasingly popular outdoor kitchens and barbecues. ''Well designed outdoor living areas have become entrenched in Australian homes. These are proper building projects; they are indoor-outdoor areas that people can live in and use. Australian Garden designer Scott Wynd said creating a gold medal design at the Chelsea Flower Show was a team effort.
