Modern pool: discover our projects!

Modern pool by

Today we are happy to introduce you one of our projects. We are very proud of this work, and that’s why we have decided to write a post about it: in the picture you can see a wonderful modern pool that we have designed and installed in a park of an ancient castle in the Chianti Valley in Tuscany. The whole project, from planning to the installation of the pool, has been carried out by our experienced staff with passion and attention to detail, in order to create a landscape which perfectly fits into the space.

Colours and emotions

This wonderful modern pool is made almost in its entirety of Belgian stone, a material which is well-known for its quality and resistance. With this material we have created both the edges and the pool itself. In order to enrich the space with beautiful hues and different colour shades, we have put some aquatic plants on the borders of the pool. By doing so, we managed to enhance the scene with some awesome chromatic combinations that merge with water creating an evocative and highly emotional atmosphere. The pool lies by an old wall with big windows. From the inside the view is outstanding: nature mixes perfectly with the architecture of the pool and leaves you speechless.

Modern pool: maintenance is fundamental

As you can guess from the picture, this pool is a little jewel that lies in a place where history and nature meet. The modern design of the pool mixes perfectly with the ancient castle and the historical park: the result is really unique and highly fascinating, something special that lets you travel with your imagination. However, if you don’t take care of it, beauty will not last in time. In order to make it last, regular maintenance is necessary, with particular regard to the pool. We offer complete maintenance services, too. Our experienced staff takes care of the pool and the garden, so that the landscape will always look at its best, exactly as you can see in the picture!

English landscape garden, let’s discover it!

English landscape garden -

Often we hear people talking about the English landscape garden. This particular kind of garden is well-known because it awakens all those deep emotions that lie within us. However, even if we can guess what may be the main characteristics of such a garden by having a walk and observing the details and hues that this space offers, just some of us really know what are the main features of an English garden. Knowing the distinguishing features of English gardens is really important and fascinating, whether you are willing to create a private garden or you are just a garden enthusiast. This post will highlight some of the main features of the English garden, so that you will be able to clearly distinguish it when you see one!

Nature expresses itself freely

Born in the XVIII Century, the English landscape garden is very different from the Italian garden, which is characterized by geometrical shapes and subdivisions of the space, thus giving the idea of regularity and symmetry. On the contrary, the English garden wants to convey that idea of spontaneity and naturalness which is typical of a pristine landscape. There are no regular, geometrical shapes nor topiary and plant sculptures: in the English garden nature is the main character and it is not limited to a regular structure. Nature is free to express itself following its own rules.

English landscape garden: natural yet artificial

The fact that the English garden favours a spontaneous nature without impositions should not trick us. The unspoilt aspect of the green space is actually artificial and is the result of the work of an expert, who organizes the landscape by studying the best solution for the space. The green area is embellished with streams, small caves, bushes and other decorations. In conclusion, English gardens are the perfect example of how the passion and expertise of a garden professional can create a work of art that is artificial, but seems pure and pristine at our eyes. If you want more information about English gardens or our services, you can contact us, an expert will be happy to answer you!

WInter flowers guide by

The Earth has got four seasons in a year, that is, spring, summer, autumn, and winter. With most flowers being season-specific, flowers and these seasons are warmly bound together. Different flowers blossom in different seasons, hence the close relationship between the two. However, there are some flowers that are not affected by the changing of the seasons and, therefore, can be found throughout the year. Some of these flowers include Aster, Carnation, Gerbera Daisy, Asiatic Lily, Bourvardia, and Chrysanthemum. This post is a little winter flowers guide that will help you choose the best plants for winter!

A winter flowers guide for your garden

Winter is the coldest season of the year. It goes from February to December in the Northern hemisphere and from June to August in the Southern hemisphere. During this cold season, there is a variety of beautiful flowers that blossom. These flowers when cared for well bring out the best warm look for your garden. Some of these beautifully warm flowers include Alstroemeria, Amaryllis, Carnation, Protea, Queen Ann’s Lace, Roses, Star of Bethlehem, Statice, Chrysanthemums, Cyclamen, Evergreens, Gerbera Daisy, Lily, Asiatic Lily, Casa, and Helleborus. These winter flowers have different hues that complement each other creating a perfect combination of colours that will lift your spirit. The winter is the perfect season to plant your flowers because, during this time, the soil temperature drops. If you love perfumed flowers, then you are spoilt for choice during this season, as these plants have fully blossomed flowers with a great scent.

Winter flowers: a great choice

Let’s go on with our winter flowers guide! Among the best flowers to plant during winter there is the Primrose, which lasts from winter to spring and has soft lacy flowers in lavender, magenta, pink, and white hues bringing out a bright, sweet fragrance. There is the Lavender, which flowers during winter and requires minimal watering. You can also plant the Paper Daisy, which does perfectly in a drained soil, spills over walls and covers the ground with its white petals, yellow centers, and blue-grey foliage. Another option is the Hardenbergia, which is a flowering climber with white and pink flowers that blossom well during the coldest days of the winter season. You can choose the Bergenia, too. It is a bright five-petal flower that grows in clusters and opens its buds during winter. Last but not least the Daphne, a very sweet smelling winter favorite that has clusters of small pale-pink flowers during winter.
