Smith invited Easigrass to support this bespoke maze design as homage to King Henry and Hampton Court, created with 160 square metres of Easigrass artificial grass covering tunnels and hedges, fully complementing an intricate array of smoke machines, water jets and Silver Birch trees. The pièce de résistance will be the numbers ‘25’ in foliage to celebrate this landmark year for RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show.
Anthony J. Gallagher, managing director of Easigrass Distribution, said:-
"It is a very exciting time for the Easigrass brand and I was delighted when Tony asked me if the Easi-Scape division of the global Easigrass brand would support RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show’s 25th Anniversary celebrations. Easigrass prides itself on a commitment to creativity and quality and we have excellent relationships with landscapers and designers throughout the UK and overseas. I am sure old Henry VIII would have been very happy to see an A-MAZE-ing view that remained perfect, 365 days a year, with no mess and no mud. I wish Tony, as well as everyone involved in the 25th Anniversary celebrations, every success with this installation and the Show overall."
Smith added: "The design and creation of this maze project has been a great privilege for me and the team. Working with such a versatile artificial grass product such as Easigrass ensures that the process is streamlined and manageable, whatever the weather. Come rain or shine, the maze will hopefully delight and surprise many of the Show visitors – the touch and feel of the Easigrass is so real, I am sure everyone will be stroking the maze walls as they navigate their way through."
