The half hectare garden is located in an area of great change of levels overlooking the splendid Castelnuovo di Porto valley. It is divided into terraces arranged on different levels. My task was to develop the planting design for the whole garden and to design the irrigation system. According to the client brief I designed a new orchard, a vegetable garden, a rose garden, an acidophil garden and two or more mixed borders.
The garden is sun kissed from sunrise to sunset. Temperatures are very high in summer and very cold in winter. The big challenge was to select plants resistant to such extreme conditions.
