We create peaceful, harmonious and uncluttered gardens by selecting only a few hard-landscaping materials and combining them with a restricted palette of unusual but reliable plants. We always include some surprises in our planting plans.
Plants are at the heart of the Stefano Marinaz Landscape Architecture design process. And because we love them and understand their needs, you can be sure that they will perform well, making your garden a beautiful and inviting place to be throughout the year. By taking our inspiration for the garden from materials and design motifs indoors, we make outdoor rooms that are a natural extension of the house. Whenever the budget allows, we enjoy designing bespoke lighting that will make these outdoor spaces equally attractive and accessible at night.
We often play with the idea of function by using the same object in different ways. Identical pots may appear in a garden used as water features, tables or fire pits. And talking of water features, we always ensure that they are integral to the overall design.
We also enjoy playing with patterns and textures, making the same pattern appear several times in the garden on different materials. In small spaces we prefer to use asymmetric designs, as symmetry in small gardens makes them appear even smaller.
