THE FRONT GARDEN AND THE ENTRANCE ALLEE
The front garden layout has been kept essentially unchanged. The existing paths paving has been entirely renovated in a sustainable and draining way with modular grids filled with white botticino stone gravel. Two side paths were added to give continuity to the front/back connections. All the central irises have been dislocated along one of the new paths and in their place have been put some wooden benches "Cobra" offering a general overlooking on the park. Very ornamental new trees have been planted, with stunning fall colours, and pine bark flower beds have been created under some conifers groups to protect trunks from lawn cutting damages. The entrance alley has been restored to its original splendor when in the 50s it was conceived as a solemn introduction to the house through a colonnade of cypress trees. At this purpose all the oleanders have been removed and the cypresses replanted. Along the escarpment agapanthus, ornamental grasses and spiraeas complete the design of the entrance to the property. Finally, the project includes the total renovation of the road surrounding the house by removing the existing black asphalt and replacing it with a more sustainable and landscaping solution through a draining asphalt in the earth colour, in order to prevent waterloggings. The whole garden has been entirely open to the house by removing the existing plants along the road perimeter.
THE DRY GARDEN
This garden is a corner apart from the whole park, characterized by xerophilous vegetation and cut into two parts by a new path, is a small resting place in the shade of the existing medlar tree. Contained within a corten steel perimeter modular grid system and black gravel to highlight the colors of the vegetation that include
the existing large blue agaves.
