Bord Bia Bloom, Dublin, Ireland

Composite Decking | Interlocking Dura Deck Tiles | Case Study

Project: Bord Bia Bloom, Phoenix Park, Dublin, Ireland

Products supplied by: Ridgeway at Home

Client: The Kildare Gallery

In June 2022, Ireland’s favourite gardening and lifestyle festival, Bord Bia Bloom returned to Phoenix Park, Dublin, following two years of virtual events during the pandemic.

Dura Composites was proud to work with its exclusive Irish distributor Ridgeway to provide a range of landscaping products for one of the large feature gardens at the show – Sculpture in the Park.

Designed and curated by owners of the Kildare Gallery, Ruth Liddle and Ken Folan, Sculpture in the Park featured stunning criss-cross pathways made from composite timber interlocking Dura Deck Tiles, as well as a beautiful composite timber Dura Pergola. The core idea behind the concept for Bloom was to remove art from the confines of gallery walls and celebrate Irish art, design and craftmanship in the garden.

Visitors could interact with over 40 pieces of sculpture set amongst a planting backdrop of orange flowers which are known for their connotations of innovation and joy.

Enabling the visitors to experience the art were the anti-slip decking pathways created by the Dura Deck Tiles. Able to transform any outdoor space into a stunning decking areas in minutes, the tiles have already featured extensively at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, where they were used within the catering areas.

Due to their unique interlocking design, the 605mm by 305mm rectangular decking tiles can be laid in minutes, without the need for a costly substructure, and are also perfect for overlaying onto an existing area where traditional decking will not fit due to the door threshold.

As well as show gardens such as Sculpture in the Park, Dura Deck Tiles are also popular with cafes, pubs, restaurants, pop-up food stalls and other businesses in the hospitality and leisure sector, as well as with back garden owners looking for a fast-fit quick and easy DIY decking product that won’t break the bank.

Kildare Gallery owner Ruth Liddle added;

“The Dura Deck Tile pathways and Dura Pergola looked amazing and are such high quality. We were thrilled by how the project came together and allowed visitors to walk around freely and appreciate the sculpture”.
