High level Planting plans can be commissioned on a small or large scale.

We work frequently for ex-pats and offer attractive Urban Gardens, Roofgardens and Terraces in the heart of Amsterdam, to residential large projects. We create low maintenance gardens with contemporary design.
Crisp, clean lines are an intrinsic part of CONTEMPORARY design, which can be applied to either small or larger gardens. Equally important is the use of space, geometric layout and the absence of too many fussy details and clutter. This all adds up to a garden that could be the perfect antidote to a hectic lifestyle – dynamic yet relaxing. Designing private gardens adapted to the life of the site is Lucie’s specialty. It creates outdoor spaces where people connect to nature while dining, relaxing and playing.
Materials tend to be natural and timeless such as stone, slate and wood, and plants become just one part of the architecture. Think clipped hedges, specimen trees and simple blocks of planting. Water is often used to create reflection, movement or sound. Photo’s © Lucie Nijsen
