A modern garden with swimming pool and fountain

If one looked out from the living room into the garden, a spectacular panoramic picture of the mountains was offered. Between the house and the panorama, on the other hand, the garden looked dreary. When the existing house was extended, the garden was designed in the same course. 

The garden before and during the transformation

Harmony between the interior and exterior

With the redesign created a stunning garden with a special atmosphere. The architecture of the house as well as the garden harmonize in harmony. The floor-to-ceiling living room windows created a connection between indoors and outdoors. The generous area was divided into different outdoor spaces. In the overall picture, these spaces close together and provide a quiet retreat with privacy.

After the redesign: a fountain and swimming pool to cool down

Gentle movements in the foliage

The wind makes gentle movements in the foliage of the maple and ornamental grasses visually recognizable. If the eyes are closed, a light rustling of leaves can be heard in the crown of the Japanese maple. The leaves of the scimitar pine and the wig shrub also dance in the wind. In addition, a gentle splashing from the fountain adds to the soothing soundscape. This is underlined with the singing of songbirds.

A portrait about the garden

The magic of water

Water elements in the garden enchant, awaken desire and have a strong attraction. The fountain, which stretches across the western area of the garden, as well as the spacious pool, which lies to the east, invite you to linger. The sky with the clouds is reflected in the water surface and makes the garden seem even more spacious. In the evening at the fireplace with crackling fire under the pergola, you can watch the light of the stars in the water surfaces.

Water garden planting concept

Individual striking planters in anthracite provide contrast and interrupt the straight lines of the garden area with a striking subtlety. The view of the mountains all around is undisturbed and unobstructed, as the lawn has been planned so that it does not interfere with the view. The waving sea of grasses with decorative culms and filigree spikes is another structuring element in the garden. Especially the coming fall color will wrap the grasses in bright yellow, orange and red colors. Another level in the garden is provided by the thoughtfully placed trees.
