Mediterranean flair for a vacation at home

The new building was extended with the garden. The straight lines of the house can also be found in the garden. The paving directly in front of the living room seamlessly connects the house with the outside space. 

At the same time, the garden was to be a personal oasis of well-being, reminiscent of a vacation in the south. Various natural stone elements were integrated into the garden to combine this desire with the light-colored façade. The Dietfurt dolomite serves as a border for the pool and enhances the shimmering, turquoise-colored effect of the water in the sunlight. In addition, small walls, also made of natural stone, were built to surround the plants. The light-colored material blends seamlessly into the surroundings and forms a beautiful contrast to the lush vegetation in the garden.

Shimmering refreshment

Idyllic space creation for a magical view

The fascinating view of the surroundings was the focus of this garden design. For this reason, the hedge, which serves as a privacy screen, was interrupted. This allows an uninterrupted view of the vista from the pool. To emphasize this idyllic space, a large lawn was laid out to emphasize the expanse of the outdoor area.

Loose planting was chosen to break up the clear lines and structures of the modern house. No tall trees were deliberately planted in front of the pool to open up the view into the distance.

Garden design with height differences

Fragrant flowers and striking heights in the garden

The garden design here focuses on half-height walls and perennials. This structure is broken up by the clever placement of a few solitary trees. Due to their height, they magically draw the eye in their direction and make it wander upwards. Two trees were temporarily stored during the renovation and planted at a later date. The tulip magnolia (Magnolia soulangeana) heralds the arrival of spring with its blossoms, while the Japanese maple (Acer palmatum) impresses all year round with its fiery red coloring.

The client is greeted by lush planting right outside the front door. In addition to the solitary trees and shrubs, various perennials and grasses have been integrated into the design. A particular highlight is the lavender, whose purple flowers provide a colorful contrast and stand out amidst the green landscape. At the same time, this popular plant underlines the Mediterranean flair of the garden and harmonizes with the chosen natural stone.

The lush planting of the garden

Cleverly placed light in the garden

After sunset, the garden unfolds a new magic. The sophisticated lighting concept allows the garden design to shine in the evening hours. While the pool attracts attention from the living room, the illuminated trees in the garden do the same. The spotlights create a mystical atmosphere around the solitary trees. At the same time, the lighting provides security and shows the way to the entrance when night falls.

This feel-good oasis shows that vacations can begin in your own garden, without long car journeys or flights. With the help of playful planting and a magnificent view, the outdoor area can become a personal retreat.
