Marley Shingles showcased at Chelsea Flower Show

  • 19 May 2023

Marley’s Western Red Cedar Shingles feature on an eye-catching garden design project at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show.

Supporting a design by world-renowned treehouse consultancy, Blue Forest, the shingles help showcase The Magical Hideaway, a fairytale creation.


The mystical design was created in collaboration with architects Randle Siddeley Limited. It includes a charming treehouse and hillside hollow set within an enchanted meadow garden. Whimsical finishes and furnishings help ignite the imagination of anyone who enters. 

To support the project, 30 bundles of Marley’s Western Red Cedar Shingles help create the exterior of the treehouse. This encases it with a warm and high performing envelope that enhances the natural scenescape of Blue Forest’s show entry.

Stuart Nicholson, roof systems director at Marley, comments: “The Magical Hideaway concept is inspiring, so it’s great our Western Red Cedar Shingles are playing a part in helping to bring it to life.

“Creating, building, and delivering on such projects can be challenging and complex. We worked alongside the Blue Forest team to ensure flexible product delivery matched their build requirements to meet various deadlines for the show.

“It is a fantastic example of how the shingle finish can be used imaginatively. We hope the design enjoys great success at the show.”

Andy Payne, Managing Director for Blue Forest, adds: “We chose Shingles from Marley as they effortlessly enhanced the natural woodland look and feel we wanted to achieve with the project. The finished design is stunning, and we’re excited to welcome guests to the stand, and see them immerse themselves in a magical setting.”

RHS Chelsea Flower Show takes place from 22 – 27 May 2023. For more information, visit:
