Modern romantic garden

"Easy and vibrant the grasses are dancing in the wind", this could be the motto of this garden. Although no bright colors are present, the composition is very much alive and anything but boring. All the plants are kept in green and white tones. The playful and snow-white butterfly bank and the matching gravel create a visual attraction and invite you to dream. The different shades of green provide a suitable depth of space, so that the garden as a whole appears larger than it actually is. This perception is even enhanced by the asymmetrical structure of the layout. Variety is achieved primarily through the careful selection of plant structures and textures. The lancet-like leaf-blades of the grasses stand in harmonious contrast to the heart-shaped leaves of the ground cover and small oval leaves of the box balls. The inflorescences of the grasses create soft contours with smooth transitions. Organic lawns between the flower beds serve as paths and follow the principle of a round course. In this way, the garden can be perceived from different perspectives and angles, which gives the viewer the impression of entering a new garden with every turn. The arrangement is not only beautiful, it's also very easy to maintain. Only the box trees have to be cut once or twice a year. The grasses remain upright until February, giving the garden a decorative atmosphere along with the evergreen plants, also during the winter months.
