During the planning we were allowed to redesign a plot with old trees for the family. The “old” garden was to be refreshed with modern elements and still have a natural and near-natural appearance.

We used corten steel in combination with Grauwacke natural stone. The grey-brown stone colour of this local natural stone combines with the rough Corten steel to form a unity. On the terrace, small natural stone paving and natural stone slabs form a perfect unity. Small moving water surfaces as well as planted raised beds on the terrace serve as fall protection and frame the terrace in style.

The lush natural planting is adapted to the shady and sunny areas and blooms from March to November in the colours pink, blue-purple and white. The grasses further loosen up the planting and create structure in winter.

The multi-stem Tokyo cherry and copper rock pear give the garden a sublime appearance in every season.  Natural, dense and original – a garden concept to feel happy.
