Meadow View Stone helps prepare for National Garden Scheme open day

by | Aug 6, 2017 | News | 0 comments

Decorative aggregate, paving and stoneware supplier Meadow View partnered with Perennial to help the residents of The Six Houses in Barton near Cambridge prepare for their National Garden Scheme open day earlier this year, with the donation of two classical Stancombe Urns.

The Six Houses are home to eight retired horticulturists and have extensive gardens that open to the public through the National Garden Scheme twice a year. Owned and run by the horticulture trade charity Perennial, The Six Houses provide accommodation for retired gardeners with each cottage having its own plot, alongside four acres of communal gardens where the Stancombe Urns now stand.

Meadow View Stone?s classically styled Stancombe Urns? complement their new surroundings, with their floral motifs and traditional colouring working in harmony with the local brickwork of the cottages and the diverse range of planting in the gardens.

Perennial is the UK?s only charity dedicated to helping people who work in horticulture when times get tough. For more information about Perennial please visit their website at www.perennial.org.uk or call 0800 093 8510.
