In parallel with the complete renovation of the apartment, the garden was also renovated. The very small area squeezed between the house and the retaining walls greatly limited the design possibilities. Since we wanted to keep the feeling of the garden as bright as possible, we decided on a mulch made of gravel, which works much brighter than soil or bark. At the request of the owner, we took a more minimalist approach with sparser planting, which is beautiful all year round. From the previous plants, we kept a smaller red Japanese maple, and for the central tree we chose a multistem Amelanchier, whose trunks cast an interesting shadow in the afternoon and draw special pictures on the wall of the house. The evergreen base is formed by yews, sedges, horsetails, ivy, and the wall and fence will be greened by evergreen honeysuckle.
