Alpine Garden, Vilnius
The house, the slope towards the river, and the huge rocks braught to the site previously had an Austrian for alpine flavor. Due to construction of a new apartment in the house basement, the site needed adjustments to the existing terrain, and the owners wished the overall look to be uplifted.
It was decided to leave the most of the existing garden elements to keep the same mood. The rocks and the little bridge were relocated to the new planting areas, and the existing well was incorporated in the design as well.
There were redesigned some paths and added new steps, also, built some new 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 Pennisetum alopecuroides make the planting look light and airy and compliment the facade of the house.
