GARDEN PROJECT

Description. The garden is situated in a hot desert climate zone. The garden has quite a large size and newly established plantings along the border wall. The main area of the garden is taken by a pool with a Jacuzzi and a cocktail bar symmetrical to the central axis of the garden. There is existing pavement made of concrete planks around the pool.

 

Client's requirements. The client wanted to make the area around the pool more attractive - to add flowering plantings around the pool. A shaded rest place also should be projected with a view towards the  pool.

Design concept. The projected plantings are placed on all four corners of the pool to soften visually the sharp concrete corners of the pavement. The plant composition is symmetrical to the central axis of the pool to correspond with the symmetrical pool layout.

The chosen plants for the compositions are medium size to avoid screening views towards the water. The plants are extremely beautiful - abundantly flowering and exotic: Agapanthus africanus, Hymenocallis litoralis and Anthurium andraenum and Amaranthus tricolor by the water and lower seasonal flowers on the other side towards the lawn.

The colorful Amaranthus tricolor is planted by the cocktail bar since it is so colorful, that it reminds of an exotic cocktail itself.

Anthurium andraenum are royal flowers, they will correspond beautifully with the water as well as also Agapanthus africanus is associated to water.

The rest area by the house is paved with the same pavers as around the pool and equipped with sunbathing lounges, cocktail tables and one bigger dining table.A part of the rest area including the dining table is shaded by three big sun visors.

On the back of the dining area a decorative plant group is planned composed of Pennisetum setaceum, Crinum augustum with beautiful big flowers, distinguishly flowering Ixora chinensis and a carpet of flowers in the front: Lantana camara and Bougainvillea nana in pink color.
