An understated city oasis

A natural nook nestled among city residences


Creating a
city garden

A living space far from the madding town

The construction of a private garden in such a prestigious setting, with the greenery set amid the buildings in a residential area of Porretta, was certainly a fascinating and rewarding undertaking for the landscape designer. In an elevated position dominating the town below, this garden is enhanced by the unusual terrain laid out on several levels. Moreover, it completely fulfills its role as a unique and intimate oasis, sheltered from the prying eyes of nearby houses, becoming a relaxing spot that gives the impression of being far from the city. This result was possible due to the perimeter screen created using ornamental plants, thereby simply and elegantly enhancing the property, and conveying the feeling that Nature is physically at home on the property.


With us,
your dreams
come true
