Succulents garden for our English clients’ customer expectations that are primarily to enjoy the minor maintenance. Secondly, preserve water for economic reasons. Thirdly, not to forget the pure beauty of a well-manicured green lawn. Said and done! To achieve this goal, we divide this garden into several sections – depending on their purpose.
Let’s start with the front yard. It shows a lawn in terrible conditions. Immediately after the renovation, it stands out. Here, even more with designer curves, lines, and river stone paths in a succulents garden sea. Here the desired effect is the eye-catching garden design. It leaves a lasting impression on the visitors. Already at first glance through its variety of water-saving plants.
Right next to the succulents is the Calçada walkway. Uniquely it leads to the site’s elegant panorama section: the inner garden overlooking the Golf Resort. The stunning location from the unbeatable front row! The installation of meter high natural stone walls protects this living garden from the prying eyes of neighbors. Next, we find the lawn on this side again in an unhealthy state that unfortunately wasn’t rescuable. Herein, the only cure is to dig out and root out the existing grass to lay-out a new roll-turf.
Henceforth, it allows two separate lawns to merge into one. Finally, the robotic lawn mower comes into action. By installing and programming, it circles fully automatic on an entirely constant grassplot with Calçada edging. The adjoining pool compliments the sunniest garden area.
Lastly, remains is the drip irrigation system for the hedge and fruit trees, ensuring water-saving usage. At the same time, maintenance is insubstantial compared to the plot size and plant abundance.
Vital Gardens succeeds to showcase an innovative approach, demonstrating another way of responsible landscape design at this Golfers heaven.
