hardscape: Groenpunt

In the middle of Antwerps most culturally diverse part of the city, a lovely duo has found their home, transformed it and is now ready to tackle their garden.

For 7 years their garden has been almost untouched, creating a natural atmosphere on which I based my design. A blackbird made its nest this spring which really made me want to turn this garden into a safe haven for birds and small creatures. 

Two multistem trees give depth and height to the garden. A varied combination of shade loving and as many native plants as possible will attract blackbirds again.
