RHS Chelsea Flower Show is a popular event in the horticultural calendar, but with limited tickets it can be a tough one to actually attend!

Grand Designs Live: Best of the Rest

The exhibition is almost over and if you haven’t had a chance to get down to the Excel Centre you might be interested to know some of the most popular stands, ideas and products we saw over the week.

Grand Designs Live: Show Gardens

We went along to Grand Designs Live, one of the best shows to go and get home or garden inspiration. The focal point for us are always the show gardens, it’s always interesting to see what will be representing the latest trends. This year’s brief was one word: contrast. This has been interpreted in very different ways by all four of the designers. Take a look and read our thoughts below: Gardens by Grace The concept behind this garden is that we experience both light and dark, happiness and sadness throughout life, and this garden represents an ever changing mood.

Wentworth BMW PGA Championship

Trulawn played host to the celebrities with our artificial grass present in the exclusive BMW PGA Championship Pavilion terrace at Wentworth Golf Course.

Rugby World Cup @ Twickenham Stadium

All eyes were on Twickenham Stadium during the Rugby World Cup; as the premier location for rugby in the UK and the flagship location for games in the tournament, it was under intense scrutiny to be up to scratch for matches and the 81,000 plus spectators visiting. Part of this involved the creation of a Twickenham Pavilion and Champions Park, two state of the art hospitality environments located in the North Car Park and a stone’s throw from the stadium entrance. The Webb Ellis Suites, a luxury dining location with its own private restaurant located in the West Car Park, […]
