Skoda And Safety On Sunflower Street

Skoda Fabia Comfort Estate

 

Škoda becomes a part of the scenery at this year’s BBC Gardeners World Live, in a innovative display called the "Roundabout Garden", designed by acclaimed landscape designer David Fountain, Royal Horticultural Society gold medal winner and best-in-show at last year’s Tatton Park Show.

The garden features an innovative safety idea for the twenty-first century - a revolving turntable that allows a car to be driven into the garden and turned through 180 degrees to avoid reversing out onto a busy road; an ideal answer to dangerous early morning manoeuvres and a new solution for those unattractive concrete or paved urban front gardens.

The "Roundabout Garden", which will showcase a Fabia Comfort Estate 1.4 100bhp, is part of a display sponsored by ŠkodaAuto, called "Sunflower Street". This display is a collection of four small urban front gardens, each with an individual theme, including the Lord of the Rings, Camelot (Knights of the Round Table) and the Lawn Garden.

This is the fourth year that Škoda has been a sponsor at the BBC Gardener’s World Live, which is taking place this year from19 - 23 June at NEC in Birmingham. The exhibition, one of the highlights of the horticultural calendar, is a fascinating day-out and offers a whole host of new, interesting flora and fauna as well as the delightful show gardens. However, for those interested in green motoring as well as green fingers, there will also be, of course, the show-stopping, prize winning Škoda Fabia.
