Trees like sculptures - garden design with fountains and Scots pines

The pictures of this garden are a very special highlight this year. Even in the magazine Traumhaus this redesign was represented and inspires many readers. Thoughtful garden planning has created an oasis here that seems to merge with the landscape and makes the newly placed trees very special eye-catchers.

Trees with strong character as a special feature in the garden

The client loves large trees, which was emphasized in the planning of this garden. Precisely chosen and carefully placed, these trees give the outdoor area a particularly strong character and skillfully conceal surrounding houses. The Scots pines (Pinus sylvestris) with deeply fissured bark soar amidst the gentle planting, forming veritable sculptures that give the garden this mystical character. 

The contrast to the evergreen forest pines are various multi-stemmed ironwood trees with fine bark and a colorful autumn dress. The plant composition should be low-maintenance. Due to the selected grasses, perennials and shrubs, a sea of grasses runs through the entire garden and connects all parts into one unit. The garden radiates an incredible tranquility through the choice of plants and the reduction of materials, by day and by night.

Different levels for exciting visual relationships

A ban on filling in parts of the garden was a challenge in this redesign. Therefore, the wooden deck had to be built partly floating. The newly created levels enabled a gentle division of the garden. In addition, the new division of the garden sets off the water feature in the central section particularly well. From every vantage point, one looks directly at the fantastic water spouts, with the planters placed behind them with the illuminated maple additionally accentuating the fountain.

Lighting concept for a unique ambience at night

Lighting at night makes this garden a unique place of recreation even after sunset. The lighting of the stairs, a discreetly placed lighting of the path, as well as the light sources under the trees accompany you as you enter the garden into the entrance area. The beautifully illuminated treetops of Parrotia persica are not only beautiful to look at from the outside, but also attract all eyes from inside the house. From the center of the garden - the seating area in the upper part - the lighting concept unfolds its full effect. The Scots pines and their bark are shown to their best advantage, while a diffuse light illuminates the entire maple bush. Underwater lights were placed in the water feature, which are directed at the water inlets. The reflection of the light in the water transforms the fountain into a very special highlight of the garden in the evening and night hours.
