New for 2018: RHS Parterre - The Modern Classic for your Garden
Stark & Greensmith's creative director, Martine Le Gassick, has collaborated with the RHS to create a new range of panels for your garden, featuring designs inspired by images from the RHS Lindley Library.The screens feature a pattern which references engravings from 'The English Gardener' by Leonard Meager (c1624 - c1704), first published in London in 1688. The timelessness of these illustrations of knot gardens and parterres underpins the new patterns which lend themselves perfectly to modern screen formats, while celebrating Britain's rich history of garden design. Our collaboration has resulted in a set of elegant screen designs which will enhance your garden, however big or small.
About the panels
The panels are made of either weathering steel, which is available pre-weathered or in a natural "raw" finish, or in powder coated aluminium RAL 7006 (Beige/Grey). The panel designs are laser-cut and de-burred for consistency, precision and safety. They are affixed by steel clamps to aluminium posts, which themselves are set in concrete, just like traditional fence posts. Aluminium's resistance to corrosion, and the inherent strength of their box-section construction means that these posts will stand the test of time.
Good for screening walls, and can be back lit. Works well as a divider, giving structure to spaces.
FITTINGS REQUIRED FOR FULL-HEIGHT PANELS: First (or stand-alone) panel will require: 2 x Posts, 6 x Clamps, 2 x End Caps. Each subsequent panel will require: 1 x Post, 6 x Clamps, 1 x End Cap
FITTINGS REQUIRED FOR BALUSTRADE PANELS: First (or stand-alone) panel will require: 2 x Posts (cut down to form 2 x 1.6m posts if concreting-in), 4 x Clamps, 2 x End Caps, 2 x Terrace Foot (if surface-mounted). Each subsequent panel will require: 1 x cut-down 1.6m post, 4 x Clamps, 1 x End Cap. If surface-mounting to a deck or terrace, each post will need to be cut down to 1.1m and will require 1 x Terrace Foot per post.
RAL COLOURS: The standard range aluminium panels are powder-coated in RAL 8019 (Grey/Brown) and the RHS Parterre range aluminium panels are powder-coated in RAL 7006 (Beige/Grey). All fittings: Posts, End Caps, Clamps and Terrace Foot are powder-coated in RAL 7021 (Black/Grey), which complements the warmer tones of both the standard and RHS Parterre range aluminium panels.
