Brigitte is “precious”. She allowed us to avoid number of errors and to enjoy a restful and creative space.
The requestfor this Provençal garden was precise: a summer garden, that is an explosion of flowers during the summer period under the caustic sun of Côte d’Azur(French Riviera).
The overwhelming(crushing) sun of July makes us discover the garden in a different way, because in their turn, abelias, oleanders, hemerocalles and agapanthuses splash the place of their colors.
In this summer period, in Provence, the queen is unmistakably the lavender.
Which wonderful moment when to take photos in the middle of this dream decoration(set), surrounded with a multitude of butterflies. The slightest rustle revealse the mesmerizing smell of lavender flowers. The slightest breath of the wind awakens the scent that hovers in the air.
In this space, the blue-violet blur of the lavender and exuberant lavender makes the protective olive trees smile. The yellow-green of the pittosporum tobira nana illuminates the scene and in the center stands a wild olive tree that gardeing teams have cut into balls, like a plan sculpture.
The view extends over the roofs of a Provencal village and the mountains of Estérel..
The express request of my clients was to design them a haven of peace in a pure Mediterranean spirit.
To restore the spirit of garden is perhaps to allow to feel, to perceive, to fell sensations and that is the only goal of my profession as a landscaper. Each place has its requirement, and to make it live closer to the demand of my customers, I must know how to listen to understand them, then take a brush to draw their Eden as we draw a painting.
Because I am fascinated by the power of emotions, I want to thank those who give me their trust and allow me to exalt their dreams. I like the exigency, I like challenges, I like to invest myself totally, to the point of only living for the agrden that I am creating.
This is what being a landscaper is !
