FAMILY GARDEN IN CIVITA CASTELLANA (ITALY)

The project was a private garden (about 3,500 sqm) near Soratte Mountain. The client brief arose their needs: I had to design a birch grove, a Mediterranean garden, a vegetable garden, a rose garden and some perennial borders.

 

The soil of the garden was superficial with tuff outcropping benches. The climate was hot in summer, windy and cold in winter. The vegetable and rose garden were designed with geometric shapes reminiscent of those present in Mondrian’s paintings much loved by the customer. The mixed borders were designed on oval-shaped raised flowerbeds.
