A way to get the professional skills of a garden designer and, at the same time, set and cut down the project fee.
It’s really easy but also pleasant: all you have to do is send by email the scale plan of the garden or terrace as it is now, plus some pictures of it and answer some questions that will help me to meet your expectations, tastes and needs.
What you get is a project of your garden or terrace composed of:
- a detailed scale plan with the exact position of each plant and furniture
- the list and legend of all the plants, reporting for each one the botanical name and the quantity to purchase
- the pictures of the plants
- a detailed description of the project
All the materials will be sent by email in pdf and jpeg file format.
Terrace up to 25 sqm – 270 sqft € 80
Garden up to 350 sqm – 3750 sqft € 250
To ask for a project or more info please write to firstname.lastname@example.org
Some examples of pictures and plan are to be found at the bottom of the page ‘Progettazione’
I began my activity in gardening and garden design in 2005 after I earned my diploma at the Monza Park School of Agriculture.
Since then I’ve carried out a number of projects that I really enjoyed. The first, entrusted to me by the Superintendent of Architectural and Landscape Heritage of the Veneto Region, was the care of the citrus fruit collection – 165 potted plants – at the historical Villa Pisani in Strà, Venice. The program included extraordinary maintenance, pruning and repotting.
Being a city dweller, I’ve always had a particular interest in roof gardens which I believe bring great benefits and should be more widespread.
In this context, I organized and participated in a convention regarding “Roof gardens and constructed surroundings” which was held March 2006 in the City of Venice. Emilio Ambasz was so generous to attend this meeting with a lecture. Records published on ‘Architettura del paesaggio’ 2006, n.15.
Gardening brings me well being and satisfaction; this led me to implement a project of gardening therapy which consists of carrying out gardening activities together with persons with special needs who derive great benefits from it.
I then designed a therapeutic garden for mentally disabled persons. I found all of the financing necessary from private donors, built the garden in a public park and personally followed the gardening therapy activities for the first three seasons as the gardener responsible for the program and for the maintenance of the garden.
Some pictures of this garden are at the page ‘Giardini terapeutici’.
I’ve also given lessons in gardening and garden design. Some of these lessons during the winter period were directed at the same groups of youth that were involved with the therapeutic garden.
I have written eBook manuals for beginning gardeners and one is available in English at Amazon, Apple and Kobo: Gardening, what a passion!
Now I’m dedicated to designing private gardens, yards and terraces.
