Cottage garden in Mistolovo
Best Implemented Landscaping and Green Beautification Project
About the project
The project is based on the idea of a classic cottage garden and inspired by the nature of the Karelian Isthmus.
It is a modern garden, which strikes a balance between natural and architectural elements, a traditional garden style and the local nature. Foliage colors range from purple to bright green. Pristine nature is represented by the rough stones of the retaining walls and the pond edge, while the trimmed shrubs express the idea of tamed nature.
The paths are made of shungite slabs trimmed by clinker bricks and textured cobblestones, which also showcase the architectural elements of the garden.
