Tuscan Garden Design & Installation
Contracted to install a new full property landscape at a newly-constructed home, I submitted a design that I felt would best accentuate the features of the home and the style of the owners. My design was themed around an Italian garden. The “Tuscan” style landscaping would emphasize the subtle Italian themes present in the home’s architecture and decor.
The grand size of the house along with the over-sized driveway and front courtyard lended themselves perfectly to the “Tuscan” themed gardens. I knew immediately I wanted to include Italian Cypress trees in the planting design. Repetition of plants and careful selection, with a focus on shades of green would complete the curb appeal. Fruit trees, a herb garden and cut flower garden would also be key features of the design.
A full property irrigation system, a circular brick paver patio, natural stepping stone garden path and new garden lighting would complete the project.
The challenge of this landscape design was selecting the appropriate plant material to best capture the “Tuscan” theme. Understanding the history and purposeful design of Italian-style gardens made the project enjoyable to build and a success once complete.
