Versatile living garden

Living garden on two levels

In the course of the extension of the garage canopy, the entire garden has been given a new overall concept. Where previously there was an unstructured lawn with isolated woody plants, an attractive and at the same time functional garden design has now been created. The client wanted a versatile residential garden. Walls of different heights, which simultaneously grade and support the terrain, divide the garden into two levels with different qualities.

A generous lawn with lush flowering herbaceous borders along the edge and wonderful woody plants on one side provides airiness. Umbrella-shaped woody plants form an eye-catcher on this side and further emphasize the generosity of the garden.

A slightly lowered lounge level with a fire bowl and natural gravel surfacing on the other side creates a homey atmosphere. A low-maintenance grass planting frames this area. Additional demarcation is provided by the evergreen hedge, which also serves as a privacy screen. The cozy lounge level is the ideal retreat for leisurely hours. The garden and the surrounding landscape merge into one, which is why the garden is visually extended.

Airy pergola

Between the two levels, a cozy seating area by the house with pergola invites you to linger and enjoy. The previously green pergola has given way to a modern, simple and airy metal pergola. Adjustable fabric panels provide pleasant shade. The extensive green roof of the garage roof in front of it extends the green zone and lets the view wander over the surrounding landscape. The forecourt below was renewed and offers a large parking area for vehicles. The simple design of the forecourt fits uniformly into the design and provides a calm overall picture.
