Living garden on the upper lake of Zurich

Living garden with attention to detail

This very homely garden radiates a cozy, almost Nordic comfort and underlines the preference of the owner for details. The pool is not primarily designed for swimming, but invites you to relax and picks up the theme of the lounge. The wooden deck on which the lounge is placed playfully overlaps the pool area and is another element in the mix of materials. A great many materials were used in this garden in a very small space: Gravel, masonry stone, wood, flagstone, randomly shaped slabs and paving - and yet everything harmonizes beautifully with each other. Also noteworthy is the contrast between old and new, which is clearly visible throughout the design.

The English garden style

This residential garden oriented on the British garden design. The most striking feature is the immaculate lawn, which is known as a special feature of this orientation. At the same time, the oasis of well-being is romantic due to the lush planting. To structure the outdoor space, evergreen hedges and natural stone walls were used. Nevertheless, care was taken not to disturb the picturesque view into the distance. Although the garden was divided in a very structured way, the different materials and plants allow for a playful harmony.

Also typical of this style of garden are the stone figures. The figures were used in this residential garden accentuated and provide an eye-catcher. The water fountain is kept in the same direction. The antique appearance gives the impression of having traveled to past times.
