Gardens project


Having a well-kept garden, even in the smallest details, can also give great satisfaction, because it is possible to create real sculptures, pleasant environments in which to spend time on summer days, or simply to give a beautiful overall image of the house.
Depending on the size of the garden and what the landlord really desires, you can indulge in your creations, designing gardens of different types, from the most classic ideas to something that can amaze and make your garden unique and unique.
You can entrust yourself to the expert hands of those who do this as a job, in a professional manner after having completed studies in this particular sector, or you can rely on your creativity and ability to invent, without however improvising as gardeners. But you can also choose an intermediate solution, that is, provide the draft of what you would like the final effect of your garden, leaving room for maneuver to the gardener and the garden designer.
At the end of the work you will have an extremely well-kept garden and even the house that faces you will look like a different building, it is all a matter of appearance in this case.
Before deciding to decide what to do in order to redesign or design your own garden, you need to know that the choice of styles is very vast and varied and depends very much on the economic, but also spatial availability of the garden in question, because if, for example, you are lovers of structured hedges, but the garden to be designed does not allow for the necessary space, so it is necessary to fall back on something less bulky, which creates less clutter and gives the garden an airy appearance.

Zen Garden



According to one of the latest surveys among garden designers, the type that is becoming increasingly popular is that of the Zen garden. What is it?
The Zen garden is not born today, but has roots well rooted in the Japanese tradition, where it was born; to design a Zen garden it is not necessary to have a very large garden available, indeed, very often the Zen garden is often designed in a portion of land within a very large area. Designing a Zen garden is not difficult, but it is necessary to follow small practical steps to make it perfect and the first is the asymmetry for a simple reason. The Zen culture is a culture closely linked to the concepts of nature and Earth, and all that is natural is never endowed with perfect symmetry, therefore everything that proves to be linear and perfectly symmetrical represents something untrue, therefore contrary to philosophy Zen. The elements will therefore always be chosen preferably in odd numbers and never aligned to each other. Another important element of a Zen garden, which when there is space and possibility, it is important to never miss, it is a small lake, preferably surmounted by imposing rocks: the discrepancy, usually desired, between the elements is fundamental in a Zen garden, provided that a condition of harmony and balance is created.

English garden and Italian garden



It is one of the most classic design styles that can be chosen for the construction of a garden and it is also one of those that requires greater care and attention to detail, even if the characteristics of this kind of garden seem to demonstrate the opposite.
One of the dominant elements, which catches the eye first of all when looking at an English garden is the spontaneity of the elements, which are left to grow almost as if they were wild, but in reality strictly controlled and studied in detail.
An English garden must be defined in the spaces while remaining an open and unobstructed place and for this reason it is almost customary to surround the garden with trees or shrubs that create the frame in which to enclose the elements of the garden; to design an English home garden, we start with the lawn, the famous English lawn, which is the basic element. It is an extremely well-kept lawn, never more than five centimeters long, which must be kept constantly clean and tidy. The designer can also advise the addition of hedges or shrubs, but also of artificial elements such as benches or elegant lighting elements to be included in the context. It is not a geometric garden, but it refers a lot to the imagination of those who design it or the idea, it has no pre-established constraints except for the small indispensable elements described above.
We Italians know, we are a people of artists and our art has found an outlet also in the design of gardens; lovers of Italian style will be able to reproduce the majesty of the parks of large villas, even in the home, if they have a plot of land large enough for natural creations. The English and Italian styles are often opposed for the diversity of concepts, if the English one described a few lines above must give the idea of ​​a free environment, without constraints, almost uncultivated, the Italian one is a geometric garden, very rigorous in its forms and in the linearity, predominantly symmetrical and cared maniacally in the smallest details. The dominant color is of course the green, which must however be completely in harmony also with the other shades of color present in the gardens, without other nuances that dominate the various shades of green, which must be combined so as to create graceful symphonies of color.
An Italian garden necessarily requires the constant, periodic and manic care of a gardener, who does not allow the bushes to take on anarchic forms: every element present in the Italian garden takes on a precise role in the harmonious balance of the complex, for this reason before starting planting must be carefully studied and designed and then kept under control. It is a schematic garden, which for this reason needs to be designed in large spaces to be able to express all its beauty.

Gardens project: Hanging gardens



The hanging gardens are increasingly used in the big cities, because they also represent excellent furnishing choices for those apartments which, not having a garden, however have large bare and anonymous terraces that need a makeover. But the hanging gardens are born above all in the large parks of the period villas, to take advantage of the unevenness of the land and create particular suggestions by exploiting what should have been an obstacle in the harmonious design of a garden.
Designing a roof garden in a terrace is a particularly complicated job, which starts from the choice of materials suitable for this type of work, which must prevent water infiltration in the lower floors. It is also important to carefully choose the type of plants that can be considered suitable for this type of installation.
The success of a roof garden in its modern sense largely depends also on the furnishings that are used, especially because the space of a terrace will always be limited and closed compared to that of a traditional garden, which is why every mistake made by choice or positioning will be more evident and will not be easy to solve, except by designing the space again.
It is very important to create large areas of shade, which must however alternate with areas in which to let the sun filter in order to avoid even the internal environment being penalized by the insertion of excessively invasive shrubs or plants.
