GARDEN PROJECT

Description. The project area is situated in a hot desert climate zone. There are three inner yards of apartment buildings. The yards are surrounded by a wall with rhythmically placed columns. The pedestrian movement is organized in passages around the yards. The yards' main function is representation - they will be viewed from the house windows. There is an existing pool in each yard constructed of three pools connected by a narrow stream. Two smaller pools are situated on each side and one bigger pool - in the middle. There are a lot of manholes for communication lines in each yard, which create obstacles for the design. Plants can not be planted neither on the communication lines neither on top of the manholes.

 

Client's requirements. The client wants to establish a representative green area in each yard and use a unifying design concept for all compositions.

Design concept. The design concept is to create formal, geometrical gardens for representation. The square forms of the composition are inspired by the existing pool, which consists of three squares. Where the communication lines allow, plant compositions are planned, which consist of bright Gazania splendens with a transparent group of Verbena bonariensis above and framed by clipped hedges in a form of a square.

For vertical greenery small trees of Ficus benjamina are planned inside the planting groups, also clipped in a formal shape.

The belt around the pools and the surrounding wall as well as in places, where the most manholes are concentrated, is covered by pebbles, which can be poured over the manholes.

In places, where the manholes are situated inside the green area, wooden frames are planned in a square form, filled with pebbles of a different color. The pebbles will fill the frame and hide the manhole.

In bigger areas covered by pebbles wooden planks are placed in a square form, on which decorative pots can be placed with Bougainvillea nana.

The whole composition is symmetrical to the main axis in the middle, which is set by the existing pool.
