Aluminium profiles and accessories from Nottinghamshire company MK Profile Systems helped Leicestershire-based Waterside Nursery to win gold at last year’s Chelsea Flower Show.

The nursery came up with a new design for its 2012 entry that included a large L-shaped pond.

MK’s aluminium 40 series of profiles was chosen to make the pond structure and a range of profile accessories were used for assembly at the show.

The resulting exhibit displayed a range of flowering and foliage marginal aquatic plants and various colours of water lily within the pond structure.

Key benefits of product application

  • The modular design of the profiles enabled Waterside Nursery to assemble the pond structure to meet exacting requirements.
  • The profile accessories allowed the nursery staff to assemble the pond structure themselves within the grounds of the show.
  • Waterside Nursery’s exhibit received a Gold Award for Aquatic Plants in the Floral Pavilion at the Chelsea Flower Show.
