A recycled rubber garden product has helped Cheshire County Council to win 'Best in Show' and a 'Gold Award' at the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Flower Show held at Tatton Park, Cheshire, on July 20-24.
The winning garden
Dunweedin marketing manager Bob Jones said: "Our rubber ground cover is a natural non-toxic raw material that is perfect for the garden because it maintains healthy plants and flowers, repels weeds and it will not decompose like wood or bark."
The recycled rubber granulate offers an innovative solution to a major environmental problem, according to the company. The UK generates around 60 million scrap tyres every year.
