The project was created for a private customer. The customer's favorite color is green, and I took this into account when selecting materials and plants. Paving, buildings, finishing materials, furniture - all in shades of gray. The plants in the garden are of various shades of green, going into gray, blue, emerald, yellowish. The habitus of plants, the shape and texture of leaves were also taken into account, so that the garden did not seem boring and monotonous, but was interesting and unusual.
The architecture of the garden is made in a modern style, with square and rectangular zones. But the garden turned out to be cozy, because about 120 different types of plants give it volume, softening the pressure of straight lines. The key object in the garden is a unique fountain - a bronze sculpture of the Gaia, in the form of a beautiful dryad, who holds twigs with leaves on which water drops into a bowl.
Garden for relaxation. It has a gazebo - lounge area with upholstered furniture. An office covered with honeysuckle, where there is a table, a chair and a laptop socket. A recreation area by the campfire, where it is pleasant to sit on soft sofas in the evenings.

Aleksandra graduated from the School of Architecture and Design in Moscow. Since then, she has been creating landscape design projects for private gardens and constantly improving her skills in various courses. She creates landscape design projects for private gardens. The main goal is always to create a garden that is as harmonious as possible and combines with the architecture and color palette of the buildings located on the site. She prefers to work by choosing one dominant color, focusing on nuances and color shades.
