Young garden designer uses PERSPEX® acrylic in innovative garden design

PERSPEX® Clear cast acrylic sheet in 10mm thickness has been used to create a curved printed dividing screen in an award winning garden for the 2013 Chelsea Flower Show.

Called “Juxtaposition” the garden was designed by Jack Dunckley, who at 20 years old was the youngest exhibitor at this year’s show.

His garden design featured two different garden types reflecting the differing plant types and landscapes found around the equator and required a screen that would clearly divide the two areas, whilst allowing the garden to be seen as one.

The PERSPEX® acrylic sheet was printed using a digital UV inkjet printer to form an opaque dot-matrix effect and then shaped to a 4 metre radius curve by London based fabricator Talbot Designs.

The garden won a Silver Gilt award and was included in the BBC Televison coverage of the show.
