Gardenlink landscapes a new urban oasis as part of Greenwood theatre facelift
Clearstone has installed several resin bound surfaces in a range of settings for Gardenlink including the transformation of the Greenwood Theatre at London Bridge into an urban oasis. Combining the creative talents of British fashion designer Zandra Rhodes and garden designer/TV presenter Joe Swift, this 1970’s community theatre – deemed ‘a large brick eyesore’ by Zandra – was given a celebrity facelift.
Using soft Birch natural stone resin flooring, Clearstone installed pathways and surfaces around the seating area of the theatre that hosts Kings College London student productions. Clearstone® resin bound provides an ideal backdrop to the new vibrant orange, blue and cerise walls of the theatre.
‘Resin bound is often specified by the client,’ says Gardenlink Contracts Manager Stuart Johnson. ‘We get very positive feedback about resin bound. Clients like the finish; it looks so good.’
Greenwood rejuvenation creates a lush ‘pocket garden’ for the wider community
In addition, the permeability of resin bound means no risk of standing water and increased sustainability enabling planting at Greenwood to create a lush ‘pocket garden’ accessible to the wider community: Clearstone’s all-weather resin bound paving accommodates buggies, wheelchairs and footfall. Aesthetic and practical perfection!
Gardenlink know that working with Clearstone is hassle free
And there’s no drama with a Clearstone resin bound production: ‘Clearstone provides a good quality product backed by a 10-year guarantee. I would definitely recommend them to other companies: they are efficient, turn up when they say they will, get the job done and leave no mess,’ says Stuart.
As a very busy company working on several projects simultaneously, Gardenlink know that working with Clearstone is hassle free: a no-fuss resin bound product and a no-fuss service. Clearstone has been installing resin bound for Gardenlink for five years on projects ranging from 30m2 to 300m2 – all receiving the same degree of expert service and quality materials.
On every Gardenlink installation Clearstone has proved reliable and trustworthy: ‘We’re usually not on site when Clearstone are working,’ says Stuart. ‘We leave them to get on with the job…and they do just that!’
