Of the old garden, only the old hedges remained. Even the walls got a face-lift: from old brickwork to fresh new white stucco.
Wellness in the garden
This backyard in northern Limburg needed a breath of fresh air. The box hedges and old clinkers were dated and the residents had new desires. A pool and a pool house with sauna were on the wish list, but how?
Garden architect Gert-Jan Schouwenaar of Sparq Gardens shed his light on it and, in addition to a new modern garden, designed a new back facade. The walls of the facade, the neighbor’s shed and the garden wall were plastered. The window frames were anthracite and the fascia was panelled with red cedar slats. That trellis returns on the pool house connecting house and garden.
The pool (link to blog about pools) is the heart of the new garden. A sitting wall from which gurgling water falls creates liveliness. Through the sunny decking you walk to the pool house.
Pool house lures residents into the garden
From the pool house you have a beautiful view over the pool on the house. This lounge terrace catches the late evening sun. Combined with the wood-burning fireplace and heater in the ceiling, summer evenings can be stretched to their maximum here. Eat under the patio by the house and “then we do the cheese board with drinks by the fireplace,” said the lady of the house. Sounds good, doesn’t it!
Floral plantings create atmosphere
The design of the garden is sleek. In contrast to these tight lines, the planting is loose in design. The flowering borders provide a tremendous seasonal experience. Echinaceas, Hemerocallis and various ornamental grasses steal the show in summer. The whimsical multi-stemmed trees are real mood creators.
The terraces are made of a large-format ceramic tile. Very low maintenance and colorfast. Notice that the edges of the pool are also made of the same tiles.
