The inspiration starts here with a visit to Grand Designs Live

Grand Designs Live, the UKs top contemporary home show, returns to the NEC from 12-14th October 2012.

With areas dedicated to interiors, technology, kitchens, bathrooms, build and gardens, there’s something for every room in your home. And with over 500 exhibitors, you can shop from a great selection of brands with 100’s of items not available on the high street.

With all this and much more, make sure you plan a GRAND day out this October!

Don’t miss the GRAND show garden!….SureSet are set to work with Rio landscapes, a confirmed finalist of the Grand show garden competition at Grand Designs Live Birmingham NEC from the 12th-14th October 2012. Come and visit the show garden and see a contemporary and inspirational design with the Grand Designs ethos and use of sustainable and ethical products.

The Green Retreat show garden is based on a small courtyard/urban garden where space is restricted. The design is modern yet simple, with interlinking rectangular structures providing the theatre and defining the space.  It is intended to provide a Green Retreat, a pleasant sanctuary with a calming tranquil environment set amongst the urban sprawl. The design replaces typical elements found in traditional garden for replicas and sustainable alternatives that echo the traditional qualities whist being innovative, functional and durable. Green is the overriding colour which even spreads down to the flooring, using various greens for the SureSet ‘SpectrumTM‘ and  ‘Fusion®’ colour range, the permeable resin bound aggregates form the bold, sleek modern rectangular stripes.

Russell Osborne, designer of the Green Retreat, is a Landscape Architect with over ten years experience in private practice and garden design. He has worked on many diverse international and UK projects and designed several award winning show gardens. He is extremely passionate about innovative design and committed to redefining gardens, their perception and importance. SureSet are so pleased to be working with someone who shares the same attributes when bringing a design to life.
