The Monaco Garden

Prince of Monaco approves plantation hardwood decking for Chelsea

Lyptus® -branded plantation hardwood decking has been given the royal seal of approval by Prince Albert II of Monaco for use in the Monaco Garden at the Chelsea Flower Show.

 

Lyptus®, made by Weyerhaeuser in Brazil from eucalyptus, has been used to form the central deck, fascias to a cantilevered roof and the staircase in the garden.

Landscape designer Sarah Eberle said Lyptus had provided the warmth of colour needed to recreate the Mediterranean environment of the garden.

 

“Importantly for the ethos of the garden, it is backed up by proven environmental credentials,” she said.

 

Woodlink UK, which supplies Lyptus® in the UK, said the decking’s appearance at Chelsea (May 22-25) would provide an opportunity for the product to shine.

 

Eucalyptus trees used to manufacture the product can be harvested within 14-16 years, compared to 60 years and more for many tropical tree species.

 

This project has been brought to life thanks to the Steering Committee created by the Monaco Government.

 

The team, led by members of Monaco’s Planning Department, comprises individuals drawn from the Government, the Diplomatic Corps and the private sector.

Featuring Lyptus® hardwood decking

 

The deck and fascias to the cantilevered roof are made of Lyptus® hardwood, a sustainable alternative to traditional tropical timbers that is produced from fast-growing trees on responsibly managed plantations in South America.

 
 
   
 
 

The winning combination of Sarah’s fresh and innovative design style together with Peter’s highly skilled and energetic team mean that the design to realisation is a smooth transition. Sarah Eberle has been working with Peter Dowle Plants and Gardens on 2 Gold medal projects, 4 RHS commissions, and numerous private gardens.
