In 2016 Rick Porter was offered the opportunity by Mick Corkery & the team at Small Loads Ltd. to design and build a show garden at their premises in Paddock Wood.

The show garden was to be one of a selection built to showcase their ever expanding range of products and to promote the companies re-brand in April to Corker Outdoor Living & Landscape Supplies.

It was the perfect opportunity for Rick to showcase his creativity and the quality of Strata's construction skills.

Natural Indian sandstone walling has been used to create the raised radius seating area, step risers and planting beds.

Sawn, calibrated sandstone paving was chosen to pave the centre of the seating area and the seat.

Raised planters have been created to add structure and soften the landscape.

Bespoke cedar screens were constructed to compliment the gabion cage screens. These create privacy and visual interest.
