Contemporary garden in Geneva
A contemporary garden in Geneva with a limited palette of plants :
- The garden is organized on different levels separated by a steep bank . Ornamental grasses mixed with Verbena bonariensis provides a simple and lively contrast while stabilizing the soil and reducing maintenance. The grasses need cutting back annually.
- Pleached Hornbeam have been used on the boundaries providing a green screen above head height.
- A long staircase made of oak sleepers contrast with the wildness of the Ivy.
Another staircase connects the main terrace to the hot tub. The cantilevered steps float among the Pennisetum.
- Elements seem to be flexible and moveable. The impression of dynamism is accentuated by the asymmetric layout.
