The slope, the huge rocks brought into the site previously, and the house style resembled an Austrian landscape.
Due to construction of a new apartment in the house basement, the site needed adjustments to the existing terrain and had to correspond to the new needs. Moreover, the owners wished the overall look to be uplifted.
It was decided to leave the most of the existing garden elements on the site and give it an Austrian flavor. The rocks and the little bridge were relocated to the new planting areas, the existing well was incorporated in the design as well.
There were redesigned some paths and added new steps, also, built some new sloping terraces enframed by low retaining stone walls, and installed a new wooden terrace in front of the basement apartment. To soften the site borders there were planted shrubs, perennials and grasses. The blooming pennisetums make the planting look light and airy and compliment the facade of the house.
