At Giardina 2017, JardinSuisse, the Association of Swiss Gardners, presents an urban piazza that demonstrates how public spaces can become recreation areas and capture an authentic garden feel. While the planning and site management for the “greennotgrey” garden is provided by Lustenberger Schelling Landscape Architecture, the garden itself is created by the apprentices of the Aargau chapter of JardinSuisse.

Under the theme of “Here and now”, Spross will create a haven in the midst of a sensual world of experience. Enveloped in a mystical backdrop of transparent strips of cloth, the stand will enable visitors to explore nature’s charms and go on a journey of discovery. Spross has taken a conscious decision to reduce its display to a natural and delicate interplay of trees, water, stone, light and sound in order to depict the overriding theme of Giardina 2017, New Naturalness.
