The garden design immediately adjacent to the house follows the classicist architecture of the building. From there, the spatial structures lead axially into the terrain measuring 150 meters in length. The client’s wish was for a park-like garden concept on the free tract of arable land that would lead through a series of different thematic areas to be experienced. The work was accomplished by using diverse design elements of classic garden architecture. In all, a total of 10 garden themes afford various design contents or possibilities for experiencing nature. To the back part of the grounds, the garden changes to a nearly natural landscape garden, which will eventually develop into woods. A stucco wall beginning in the front garden and extending past the house to the back main terrace serves as a shield for privacy. Along the shielding wall, lighted art objects stand as a gallery, which in turn again, are framed by evergreen topiaries.
Carefully calculated viewing axes and eye-catchers give structure to the garden. The garden concept is organized via a system of paths, an arcade, and several thematic highlights, which have been arranged along the long axis of the property.
The axial structure of the space essentially determines the lateral slant of the original grounds with its 1.50 m difference in height. This height difference is dealt with by staggering walls and steps, which constitute various levels. Shaped like this, the topography could then be used for a little stream. The axial design approach is particularly clear in the central lawn parterre. The slender swimming pool built in here serves to emphasize this. In the middle of the back landscape garden, a biologically natural pond with waterfall commands the view. This pond will someday become a hidden pond in the woods clearing.
