We all know that the initial steps require a concept study that considers every aspect of right from the planning stage in order to guarantee optimal usability and avoid complications during the execution phase.

In that respect, these useful examples should be of help.


Let’s have a look at this first project that contains the the main elements that should always be taken into account when dealing with garden design:

  • standards and regulations
  • vegetation selection according to:
    • plot location
    • plot orientation
    • function (visual and acoustic screening, shading, boundary delimitation, etc.)
  • equipped open areas (benches, recreational areas, children’s playgrounds, etc.)
  • furniture and materials suitable for outdoor use
  • irrigation systems
  • fountains and pools
  • rain water drainage
  • shading systems
  • perimeter walls and fences
  • lighting.

Urban spaces

This project is the re-functionalisation of an existing urban area, although not linked to a specific study, with eye-catching features:

  • terraces and footpaths that create a visual and acoustic separation between the various areas
  • shading structures that integrate with surrounding vegetation
  • children’s play areas
  • paved pathways.

Public spaces can come in a wide range of types and sizes, and have a variety of functions. This project stands out for these aspects:

  • coloured paving
  • skating rinks
  • self-draining pavements in recreational areas
  • play areas
  • differentiated lighting for each area of the park
  • Corten fencing.
