With Thorndown Wood Paint
Ben and I have been working with and supplying Love Your Garden from the very start of the hit ITV1 series, so when we started Thorndown we were delighted to be able to continue our relationship with the team and supply the programme with our Wood Paints.
In series 11 the team travelled to the home county of Thorndown to makeover two gardens in Taunton, Somerset.
Taking inspiration from stately homes, the team designed and built a new garden for Dunkirk Memorial House and one for the home manager. They commissioned local artist Jon Minshull (who painted the Avalon Marshes mural with Thorndown Wood Paint for the Glastonbury Mural Trail), to paint a Capability Brown landscape as a boundary focal point at the end of a pergola. A run-down part of the garden was transformed into an incredible place to sit and relax with a unique and stunning painting to admire.
Jon used Thorndown Wood Paints for the mural and the team painted the pergola and garden furniture with Launcherley Blue Wood Paint, an elegant and stately blue.
Mel’s garden was transformed into the most beautiful space with traditional planting, a borrowed landscape seen through a new natural hedge boundary, and new fencing painted in heritage tone Goddess Green.
