The first scheme inspired by some of the installations we have seen in the south of France with lighter tones set against a backdrop of sensory planting; olive trees, lavender, mint and rosemary complimented with our elevated halo fire pit in portland to keep you warm as the sun goes down. A relaxed garden ideal for outdoor entertaining.Solus Decor Outdoor Living Indian Ocean

Creating our stand at Chelsea Flower Show 2017

Solus Decor at RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2018 exhibiting fire pits, fire bowls, water features and accessories in London, England

Solus Decor have spent the week in Chelsea building our stand for the opening of Chelsea Flower Show 2017 next week.


We are lucky enough to have worked with some incredible suppliers this year and as we come to the end of the build up today we wanted to share a little about some of our suppliers at for Chelsea Flower Show 2017. We are very grateful for their support, hard work and excellent products.


TKE Landscaping are our main contractor who have brought the whole design together from concept and through to the build this week.  TKE Landscaping are a landscape gardening company based in Essex providing a wide range of garden services including garden design, maintenance, creating patios, path and driveways and erecting garden buildings and gazebos.  The build up this week has been a pleasure due to the skill and hard work of TKE who have great attention to detail and great problem solvers due to their knowledge and experience in the field.

Sourcing the right decking for our stand was a challenge when we were putting together the design for the stand.  We knew that given the English climate and the probability of rain at some time during the show we were keen to ensure that the flooring was anti slip, which led us to a composite decking.  The next challenge was finding the right colour, we were keen to ensure that the tone worked well with both our fire and water features and outdoor living seating area. Brooks Bros stepped in with their composite decking by Silvadec, which compliments all elements of the stand perfectly. Brooks Bros offer timber storage, ordering and selection services, added value machining and finishing.  With their state of the art facilities they are well placed to process your timber just the way you want it.

One of the keys elements of RHS Chelsea Flower Show is of course the the plants and flowers and we were keen to ensure that our stand reflected this and were naturally thrilled when Green Matters agreed to help us to add this element to the stand with a two living wall installations.  We are thrilled with the living walls supplied by Green Matters and the green element they add to our stand.  Green Matters provide a range of urban greening solutions including living roof, vertical greening, system development and supply and installation with their their experience and technical knowledge they are well placed to help you with your next project.

Given the temperamental nature of the British weather we were keen to ensure that we had some coverage to the stand to protect us from any rain showers and at the same time offering shade on the off chance that we have hot and sunny days for the duration of the show. Flybird Installations have provided a great awning that looks great and provides a great cover to the stand above our seating area;  great addition to our stand any outdoor living space.
