The project was a private garden (about 3,000 sqm) located in the center of a lateral “caldera” of the vulcanic Lake of Bracciano.

Temperatures are extremely hot in summer and cold in winter.

According to the client brief I had to design: a belvedere from where to contemplate the lake, an orchard, a vegetable garden, an olive grove for the family production of oil, one or more mixed border.

The whole project revolved around the creation of a long pergola that divided the garden into various parts. The pergola gave verticality to the garden and allowed the growth of many varieties of wisterias and ancient roses loved by the owners. The vegetable garden was organized in large squares to make the cultivation of vegetables simpler and easy on eyes.
