Sarah Naybour has designed a detailed and contemporary show stand at the flower show at RHS Chelsea this year. The use of the black cladding has allowed the many sculptural shapes and textures by David Harber really stand out.

Sarah Naybour said “Early morning shadows of Hydra cast onto Shou Sugi Ban Yūkari Structures. Just Beautiful.”

We couldn’t agree more with Sarah. Her material combinations in this garden design have displayed exactly what can be achieved with Yūkari. Furthermore, there are 7 unique finishes in the Yūkari range. All available in countless profiles and dimensions to work with any design.

We created the Yūkari charred timber cladding range exclusively for James Latham. We wanted to make a range offering something special to designers in search of charred textures unique to the other ranges available. Yūkari is a hardwood with a level of brushed and coloured finishes not seen before. These give many more choices to designers when searching for this style of exalted Japanese finishes.

Justin Hayward, Technical Timber Sales Development Manager, James Latham – “We have supplied Yūkari Shou Sugi Ban by Exterior Solutions Ltd for the David Harber Trade Stand at this year’s amazing RHS Chelsea Show, which has been designed by the brilliant and talented garden designer Sarah Nambour.”

Charred black cladding adds a special dynamic to the backdrop of many garden spaces. It elevates the garden surroundings and shoves the planting into the foreground. In doing this the green of the planting becomes highlighted and makes vibrant colours POP. This effect is essential for show gardens. Obviously you can use this exact effect to elevate most garden spaces.

These products are available from James Latham exclusively from our network of depots across the UK.
