The Secret Garden
Garden Design Competition
Location: Padova (IT)
An intimate secret garden hidden behind a tall wall..
Double rows of Buxus Sempervirens hedges frames the main focal point, a beautiful and evocative contemporary painting, reflecting in the below waterfeature.
The dancing waves of colours outside the frame create a whole with the overall garden.
A contemplative english bench in front of the piece of art persuades the visitors to stop, relax, observe, breathe.
Location: Surrey (UK)
A beautiful country house in Surrey is the setting for this prestigious project, where Taxus domes of different sizes are playing with bulbs, herbaceous and perennials. A couple of existing bronze dragons have been relocated in the axis with the main dining area, floating in between the low planting of Alchemilla Mollis.
A cascade of Rhododendron are planted in front of the swimming pool area, to visually link with the surroundings.
