Rural garden with round shapes:
The fence is made up of a vertical framework of wooden slats. This fence runs around the garden and will alternate with climbing plants.
Directly along the house, across the full width, comes a terrace with diagonally placed anthracite colored Walloon formats.
An Asian stone staircase brings us to the lowest part of the garden. In this part comes a half-hardness of yellow gravier d'or and a confinement of galvanized profiles.
The large border party runs from the upper terrace to halfway through the terrace with half-hardness (gravier d'or). The side wall of this raised border is finished with CorTenStaal. This border has an organic shape, which then continues in a hedge of Taxus baccata. This hedge comes along the terrace in the back of the garden and ends at the place where the storage / shed is located. Similar lines are visible on the other side of the garden. This makes the garden dynamic. From the storeroom / shed the round beams to the outer edges of the terrace are connected to the uprights. This creates a great opportunity to later plant creepers. The slate trees (evergreen slate trees are optional) provide closed foliage in the air with which the view from the rear dwellings is minimal.
A garden in harmony with level differences, a lot of variety of materials and a variety of plants.
A small space that in this way looks much larger than it really is.
