Structured Slopes / Valbonne

French Gardens

Period: Sep 2010 - Dec 2010

Client: Davis

Our client wanted to renovate the garden but change the level of the swimming pool. This required breaking the existing swimming pool and recreating another drop away pool. As this was a clay based soil this menat challenges for us. A layout plan was established with individual areas for this sloped garden. Our client wanted a boules court, vegetable garden area, garage, lawn area, driveway and swimming pool.

We sourced stone locally and used some substantially sized boulders for the retained wall areas. Once the structure was built the planting started and lawns were laid. The substantial driveway with turnway was completed last. Planting was in keeping with the surrounding landscape.
