Spring Gardens, Country Gardens -

Country gardens, miniature landscapes!

The country garden is not the garden of "decorative" fashions, of style "Rustic chic" that a few magazines suggest. The country garden is the garden of longevity, the garden of duration, the garden of time that passes slowly, almost preserved. The country garden must be a natural garden par excellence. It is a bountiful and modest garden. It is a garden of perspectives, evocation and meditation. It is a garden that lets you enter the landscape of a living postcard, from a long time ago, rural, to today, delightfully ideal and outdated. It is a garden of breathing, it is a known country that remains to be discovered. It’s air and nature, color and vegetation. It is the garden of temporality, the garden of the seasons, the garden of sincere memories.

Country garden… not just for plants?

The country garden is a tasty mix, a successful draft of well-known flowering plants, wild flowers, natural installations. Ultimately, it is a garden where the gardener has allowed himself everything with a consistency that only nature itself could question ... Flowery mixtures where varieties follow one another offering color, light, foliage and luxuriance. It is a vegetable patch or mixed vegetables, scattered here and there in the beds, perennial vegetables having a good place ... In the country garden, everything is also done for animals, toddlers, medium-large where the pollinators feel good, bees in the lead, where the insects work the land, finding their account and their place, or the seasonal birds find rest and food, where a hedgehog wanders proceeding from the limitation of the molluscs. This is a garden where devastating synthetic chemistry has no place.
