Ideas that have germinated...

For the realization of this garden, we left from a base made by a previous landscaper. Over the years, we have removed many conifers, which have become too large and have too much shading and acidity to the plants of the soil.

In order not to reproduce the same situation and not to require too abundant peripheral plantations, we have proposed to the customer to qualify the walls and dependencies using a painting which allows to give value to the masonry without Give them importance. We removed many shrubs and reformed the remaining shrubs in order to clear the veranda, the dependence and the terrace. The turfed space has been expanded to the maximum.

We advised the owners to create a sidewalk masoned on the periphery of the veranda of the same material as the historic alley. The inhabitants found light and sight at 180 ° from the veranda to the garden. The structure of the garden was underlined by appropriate lighting , the laying of metal tesa in separation from the lawns and massive areas. A significant contribution of Compost and mulching Of the masses using the products of BIO YVELINES has made it possible to improve crop conditions. spot and targeted plantations have come to complement and rejuvenate the massifs, while hiding the opposites.

Our plans arehandmade, on a drawing board, to keep the mastery of our achievements (the head drives the hand), not to limit our creativity to the possibilities of a software or a mouse... very often Inferior to our gray cells.

Urban Garden

By definition, the urban garden must blend into its environment. It must imperatively take into account the client's wishes: on the opposite sides, easements, potential perspectives, and relate to the direct architecture of the surroundings or a detail that can serve as a theme or head of composition.

An urban garden is an exercise of very fine and detailed style, which can and must evolve according to the region and the architectural context whatever it is, because it is necessary to take into account also the materials used and their implementation.
The realization of this type of garden is complex, because one is often in a confined space, even restricted, where it is necessary to go to the simplest, while remaining extremely precise.
