Garden design on two levels

Green terrace design

In this family house two levels were designed at once. On the upper level dominates the large terrace on the sunny side with a view of the mountains. The large green specimen plants stand out, which optimally serve as privacy screens. After all, what would a terrace be without plants? They give the terrace a lot of greenery, which makes it look natural and modern at the same time. The solitary plants are decorated in Atelier square containers, which give a simple and elegant effect.

In the corner is a spacious lounge with plenty of space, where family and friends will surely feel comfortable. The whole combination of the beautiful greenery, the natural stone floor and the lounge makes the terrace varied and exciting.

Garden design with swimming pool

The garden also delights with the large swimming pool and the green lawn. From there it is wonderful to take a run-up for a jump into the pool. The children particularly appreciate this "runway" - pure action. For peace and quiet, there is a lounge from where the sun's rays can be enjoyed in silence. At the back of the garden is a shaded seating area on gravel with hydrangea planting for the hot summer days.

In a garden design we pay attention to the fact that the garden extends the living space. An important role here is played by the visual relationships, even from the interior. The eye can wander undisturbed through the garden, so that the living room continues to feel open and flows into the garden. The shimmering pool is also in view, giving everything something natural and modern at the same time.

Detailed equipment

The client wanted a decor down to the last detail. Grasses were planted right into the last corner, giving the garden design a personal and refined touch. The terrace area was also equipped with lots of greenery and exclusive planters. The plants are optimally watered by an automatic irrigation system from GardenTec. Thus, the owner can enjoy the garden to the fullest and no longer has to worry about watering in time. For the lawn, the robotic mower takes care of the maintenance. To ensure that the terrace and garden radiate a homely atmosphere even after sunset, containers and individual plants are illuminated.
