A wide lawn makes legible the mixed border of shrubs and small trees that distances the boundary and hides the view of nearby dwellings. Maples, Judas trees, flowering apple trees, strawberry trees and pistacie trees are arranged on a geometrically shaped embankment made close to the concrete perimeter wall that has been completely concealed from view. The whiteness of the stone chosen for the paving and wall, the changes in perspective in the course of the paths emphasized by repeated groups of plants, guide us on a pleasant journey. From the dwelling you come to a secluded pergola where you can pause in tranquility enveloped by low plants and exuberant blooms, then a seating area equipped with a barbecue amid aromas of sage, thyme and rosemary, and here is another berceau furnished for dining that, surprisingly, overlooks an intimate corner of the garden. It will be pleasant to read a book in the shade of the old olive tree.
