Love Your Garden with Protek Wood Stain

 

For the last 7 years Protek has been featured regularly on Love Your Garden. 
 
We are constantly amazed by their vision and skills to transform even the dreariest areas into wonderful spaces. We are delighted that our paints play a small, but colourful part in the amazing transformation.  And of course, like the rest of the country, there isn’t a dry eye in the house when we see the deserving individuals/ family’s shock. 


Love your Garden 2018 Episode 2

Love your Garden 2018 Episode 2

 

Alan Titchmarsh makes over a garden in Newark for a double-amputee veteran Nathan Cumberland and his young family. Despite his injuries, through his work with the Defence Medical Welfare Service charity, Nathan has devoted his life outside the armed forces to supporting older and elderly veterans who are often less likely to seek help for themselves than their younger counterparts. With tips on how to create a beautiful woodland themed outdoor space, Alan, Katie Rushworth, Frances Tophill and David Domoney take on Nathan's inaccessible plot and transform it into a show-stopping family garden.

 

Protek supplied the wood stain for this episode of  ITV’s Love Your Garden and it helped create the woodland feel in this special garden. Our uber cool Anthracite Grey was painted on the fences alongside Pond Green from the Royal Exterior range. Frances used her artistic flair to design a leafy mural mixing in Jungle Green and Mushroom. The Bex Simon commissioned sculpture was amazing and took centre stage against the Anthracite Grey, perfect.

 

Another inspiring episode, a fitting garden for this lovely family and Nathan who is most definitely a big man with a big heart.

We are so thrilled to be involved for our 7th year with ITV’s Love Your Garden. The series kicked off in May with their biggest ever project, to create a garden for The Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital.

 

The inspiration for Alan and his team came from letters written by the hospital’s young patients. Some of these patients were victims of the nearby Manchester Arena bombing; they requested an outdoor space for patients, families and staff to take respite. 

 

Alan meets the brave youngsters who wrote to him, some with life-threatening conditions and others like Lily Harrison who was treated by the hospital after receiving shrapnel wounds at the Ariana Grande concert just a year ago. He listened to their suggestions and with the rest of the team sets out to create a magical retreat full of thoughtful detail that the whole community can enjoy and be proud of.

 

The paint used for this special episode of Love Your Garden was from the wonderful, colourful Wood Stain and Protector range. These colours are always a firm favourite for use on children’s play areas.

Also used were the sophisticated Royal Exterior China Clay and its dramatic Black.

The team then headed to Chandlers Ford in Hampshire for Episode 3 to help the Richardson family, who are facing a very difficult future. Father of two Jason survives only by the means of a portable external machine which keeps his heart working and three weekly sessions of kidney dialysis. The whole family are now tied to their home and desperately need an outdoor space on their doorstep that can become an escape. 

 

It rained and rained and then rained some more but somehow they managed to create a beautiful restful garden for all the family. We were particularly excited to see the brave use of Royal Cashmere on the fences and shed picked out with the lively Royal Spring Green.

Royal Exterior Mendip Mist stole the show in Episode 2 as Alan and his team transformed a grim concrete yard in Salford into a classic cottage garden for 87-year-old twins Rita and Betty Mills. Having lived in Salford all of their lives, the twins recently moved into their new bungalow for health reasons and have never wavered in devoting their lives to helping others, so Alan and his team work to transform their concrete patch of dismal cracked pavers and hard edges into a beautiful cottage-style outdoor space where they can relax.

 

A beautiful garden with a retro feel was created and Mendip Mist was used on the arbour and summerhouse to help enhance the soft peaceful atmosphere. Protek Wood Stain & Protector in Whitewash was used to paint the fences to stunning effect.

Alan Titchmarsh and his team transformed a garden in Plymouth into a show-stopping contemporary outdoor space for ex-Marine Mark Ormrod, who lost both his legs and an arm in Afghanistan, and his young family. The team show how lush tropical planting can work well in a low maintenance garden, and create a contemporary space for Mark and his family and friends to enjoy quality time together.  

 

Protek Royal in Taupe was used to lighten the old existing fence with a solid paint finish; this created a simple sophisticated canvas for the rest of the garden. An astonishing outdoor living space was created. For the children’s playhouse Royal Slate Grey was used to enhance the nautical feeling of the garden.

“Love Your Garden” heals more souls

“Love Your Garden” heals more souls

The nation’s favourite gardening series, “Love Your Garden” returned to ITV1 for another series on Tuesday 25th June at 8pm.

For the fourth year running the production company Spun Gold TV, selected Protek wood stains for the series. The team skilfully use Protek’s diverse range of coloured wood stains to create striking backdrops to planting and often use the stains as an integral feature of the gardens.

Caroline from Protek says “Being a fan of the series I am delighted that ‘Love Your Garden’ are using our wood stains again this year. We feel very proud and privileged to be part of such a wonderful production and each year I look forward to seeing how they use our colours in their garden designs.

This year one of the garden transformations was taking place in Moorland, Somerset and they had an enormous amount of painting to get through. As our manufacturing factory is based in Shepton Mallet, Somerset, only about 30 minutes away from the garden, I very happily donned my overalls, enlisted the help of my mum and drove down to the site with a boot full of Royal Exterior Snow wood stain to help the team.

The couple that live in the house had been through a terrible ordeal with Sheila battling breast cancer and within weeks of coming home from hospital they were evacuated from their house after the floods struck. Their garden was a haven for Sheila but got totally destroyed by the floodwaters.

Alan Titchmarsh and the ‘Love Your Garden’ team came up with a beautifully soothing design for the garden taking inspiration from New England. White painted picket fences personify this instantly recognisable style used alongside soft attractive planting.

Mum and I spent the day painting everything in sight from picket fences & planters to arches and fence screening. The old back boundary fencing was painted with Royal Exterior Anthracite Grey wood finish to create a striking contrast to the soft planting and white paint.

It was great meeting members of the team that work so hard to create these amazing garden havens. I got to see David Domoney again who is an absolute inspiration to me and another highlight was that mum and I got to meet Alan Titchmarsh who has been a hero of ours for years!

Most importantly it was an honour to be able to supply and assist with helping out some local Somerset people affected by the devastating floods that troubled so many.”

‘Love Your Garden’ splash out with Protek

The ever popular ITV primetime gardening show returned to our screens this summer with another stunning series. With viewing figures now exceeding those of BBC Gardeners World, millions of people tuned in every week to see horticultural legends Alan Titchmarsh and David Domoney team up with Katie Rushworth and Frances Tophill to transform the gardens and lives of well deserving members of the public.

For the third year running the production team and designers used Protek wood stains as an integral part of their garden designs. Urban wastelands were transformed in to stunning gardens with the help of great planting, structures and landscaping features.

 

Protek’s coloured wood stains were used on a range of timber products including boundary fencing, an ornamental bridge, playhouse, sheds and summerhouses to add beauty and protection. Colours from Protek’s Wood Stain & Protector range and their extensive Royal Exterior Superior Wood Finish range were used to compliment planting and create attractive features throughout the garden design.

 

We are very proud to have been selected again as suppliers to such a great series and to have the continued support of such a high-profile production. Alan Titchmarsh has always been a personal hero of mine and it’s a delight to see how he and his team use Protek colours as such an important part of their garden transformations.

 

This series they used huge swathes of our colours from the first episode featuring our Wood Stain & Protector in Gun Metal Grey on the entire boundary fencing, to the final episode where Royal Exterior Mendip Mist was applied to the boundary fencing, summerhouse and bird table with accents of Cornish Cream on the aforementioned, and Royal Exterior Cornish Cream on the ornamental garden bridge – the whole garden was given the Protek treatment!
