GARDEN PROJECT

Description. The garden has a large territory, it's size is almost 1 hectare. The territory has been used for armed forces previously and from that time fundamentals are left in the North corner of the territory and two hills as well as some old pavement. In the middle of the garden there is a beautiful birch stand. The owners have established a pond, planted some fruit trees and flowers. There is an existing mini-golf field by the street, which is being rented out to visitors. The owners want to build a sauna house by the pond and rent it out together with the golf field. They have also started to dig another small pond in the visitors' area.

 

Client's requirements. The client wanted to landscape the area around the newly established pond first and asked to design flowerbeds and rest places around the pond. The best placement for the sauna house should be chosen near the pond. The owner also wanted to establish a gazebo for visitor recreation and some seats, from which the mini-golf field could be watched. The visitor area should be separated from the private area of the garden by a symbolic fence. In the private area the client wanted to establish a children's playground, a gazebo with a view towards the pond, a terrace by the summer entrance of the house and a fireplace. On the existing fundamentals the owner wants to build a household building. The territory is quite humid and there is an existing drainage ditch, that the owner doesn't like at all, it should be redesigned. The territory is so big, that it requires too much maintenance, the newly designed garden should be easy to maintain.

Design concept. The main values and peculiarities of the garden are implemented in the garden design. It is planned to reshape the existing hills to a more gentle shape to correspond them to the natural shape of the established pond. At one end of the pond a gazebo is planned, from which the full length of the pond can be seen. The gazebo is situated under big existing birch trees with a path made of white stones to correspond to the beautiful white stems of the trees. By the projected household building a parking lot for cars is planned. The existing old asphalt by the living house is removed to establish new plantings and only pedestrian path leads to the house. It is possible to access the house by car, if necessary. Behind the household building the dog's running area is planned with a kennel on one side, which has a direct view towards the living house. The children's playground is designed in-between the two buildings and it can be overlooked conveniently from the kitchen window. The existing unpleasant ditch is reshaped into a curved attractive water course, which ends with a small pond for water lilies. This will be a quiet place for relaxation with a bench surrounded by abundant plantings. The private garden area is separated from the visitors' area by a small, wooden fence, which waves across the garden and has small gates at the driveway.

In the visitors' area a sauna building is planned at the end of the pond. The view from the sauna terrace is amazing - the pond is seen at it's whole length and beautiful reflections of birch trees glimmer in the water surface. The visitors' sauna has a lawn area for sunbathing enclosed by flowering plantings and a separate fireplace in the garden corner. The existing pit is designed as a representation pond - it is within the first view from the garden gates. The visitors' gazebo is placed by the pond and on the other side it is surrounded by flowering shrubs and perennials. A pedestrian path leads from the entrance gates to a pergola under existing trees, from which the golf play can be watched.
