As the largest hardscapes manufacturer in the nation, Belgard has partnered with the largest horticultural event in the nation as the 2016 PHS Philadelphia Flower Show’s official hardscapes sponsor at their event to be held March 5 - 13, 2016, in the Pennsylvania Convention Center.
This year’s show, “Explore America,” will celebrate the centennial of the National Park Service and America’s majestic landscapes, rich history, and vibrant culture by showcasing stunning displays created by the world’s premier floral and landscape designers.
“As the official hardscape sponsor of the show, Belgard pavers
and retaining walls
will be used exclusively throughout the show in exhibitor displays, garden areas, stage construction – really, anywhere hardscapes are needed,” said Thomas Musselwhite, Trade Marketing Manager for Belgard. “Our participation will not only boost brand visibility with the more than 250,000 outdoor enthusiasts who will attend the show, but with top landscape professionals from around the world.”
In addition to the use of Belgard hardscapes throughout the show, Belgard will also exhibit a variety of hardscape products in the entrance garden. The Belgard feature exhibit, which was designed by the Belgard Design Studio
, will be constructed to emulate a home with an expansive backyard outdoor living space, which includes an Old World Paver™
driveway, a Mega-Lafitt™
paver patio, meandering gardens bordered with Anglia Edger®
, a Bordeaux Belgard Elements
outdoor kitchen and fireplace, and a Mirage® porcelain paver
pavilion. Tandem™ Modular Grid
will be used to create various structures throughout the feature display, included the pavilion posts, an arbor, end caps, and column wraps.
“Every exhibitor will have the opportunity to incorporate Belgard hardscapes into their displays,” Musselwhite said.
The Philadelphia Flower Show is hosted by the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society and benefits a variety of year-round programs in the Philadelphia area that have become national models of urban greening. For more information on the show, visit theflowershow.com
