The project demonstrates the versatility of Western Red Cedar; used for cladding, fencing as well as a custom built gate.

Silva Timber’s 19 x 38 trim boards are often used to add an elegant and contemporary look to gardens.

The crisp, clean lines and warm colour tones of cedar enable to product to blend with natural surroundings and contrast nicely with man-made materials such as slate, render and glass panels.

Philip adds, “The Western Red Cedar trim boards are used to give texture to the simple forms and to link visually between the elements. They are spaced in order to create shadow gaps, giving a uniform “hatched” architectural textured facade.”
