A simple garden project for the family

February 18, 2018 Best landscape design

The owners of this garden wished to create a simple space for the whole family, with beautiful plants, a corner for children to play and a large dining area.

It was also important to take into account the new glass extension of the house, which unified the interior with the exterior.

A simple garden project for the family

In this garden project for the family to make the most of the sun, the main dining area has been placed at the opposite end of the house, with a pergola that provides shade to the guests and acts as a support for the wisteria.

The view from the house is that of a long rectangular lawn with a formal look. Olive trees and box spheres are arranged at regular intervals between the luxuriant and exuberant vegetation of perennial grasses, which give structure, scent and color to the edges.

A bench is placed on one side of the garden, in the middle of the vegetation, so that you sit down to watch the children’s play can catch up to the last ray of the evening sun.

A small border of lavender and boxwood fencing the play area, equipped with a swing and a carpet of bark shavings.

All around the garden, a fence made of trellises and support poles guarantees privacy.

Mirrors mounted on the wall amplify the feeling of space under the pergola, where, around the base of a tree, in a corner, a bench has also been inserted.

DIMENSIONS 16 x 10 m (160 sm)

Garden project for the famaly with child-resistant borders

Many plants react quickly enough to occasional contact with children and their activities; others, however, if continuously tormented end up having such a miserable and battered air to induce you to abandon them permanently.

Therefore, on the borders of the areas most frequented by children, it is better to include relatively robust plants or those able to quickly recover from possible traumas.
