A beautiful informal country garden in autumn.

Both the wooden house and the garden near the Elbe dike in Northern Germany are modern in style. An ornamental grass border echoes the pastures of the surrounding scenery and is the garden’s focal point in autumn. It is separated by a grass path and box-edged borders and a flower meadow with newly planted fruit trees. In the front garden interest is provided by rusty metal objects and sculptures in a gravel area with box spheres and silver leaved ground covering plants.
