The Centenary Garden project, Exbury - Breedon Self-Binding Gravel

Featured at Exbury Gardens, this is a fantastic example of how our renowned Breedon Golden Amber self-binding gravel works well with modern materials in historical surroundings.

History of the project

Our Breedon Gravel was specified for accessible footpaths in the recently created Centenary Garden to complement the established woodland setting at Exbury Gardens. This special garden was created to commemorate 100 years since the banker and plantsman Lionel de Rothschild founded Exbury Gardens in the New Forest. 

Location

Exbury Gardens is a famous garden open to the public near to Beaulieu in Hampshire, it still belongs to the Rothschild family.

Project details

The Centenary garden was designed by Marie-Louise Agius (Lionel de Rothchild’s great-grand daughter and Chelsea Gold Medalist), she has created a contemporary design whilst incorporating regular nods to the family history throughout.  PC Landscapes have done an incredible job in making this impressive showpiece a reality by using the highest quality products and deservedly won The Principle Award at the BALI awards 2019. 

The Grand Opening

The garden was landscaped over a 2 year period and wasn’t publicised until its official launch in 2019 when HRH The Prince of Wales officially opened the Centenary Garden – this was to ensure that it had a chance to grow and establish – the creators wanted visitors to experience the stunning, thriving garden from day one.

Why Breedon self-binding gravel was chosen

Breedon Golden Amber self-binding ravel is the perfect choice for this situation, providing a durable, natural surface whilst not compromising on the aesthetics of the design. The nature of our non-frost susceptible product ensures year-round access for buggies and wheelchair users alike meaning that all visitors can enjoy this beautiful garden.
