Live your garden

Our history

1997 – THE FOUNDING YEAR

When Giardina was held in Basel for the first time in 1997, Swiss gardens were frequently characterised by lawns, beds of roses, vegetable patches and sitting areas. Individually designed outdoor spaces were more of an exception, and living space and the garden were still clearly separated from each other.

1999 – THE GARDEN MOVES INTO THE SPOTLIGHT

The current superstar of the gardening world – Enzo Enea – caused a great sensation at Giardina 1999 when he staged the garden as an open-air room with sophisticated furnishings for the first time. In so doing, he opened up the door to a new world. The garden as a space for relaxation, encounters and enthusiasm for design was then also taken up as a topic by the public at large – and Giardina developed into a key source of inspiration for garden dreams.

2001 – A NEW, SOPHISTICATED GARDEN CULTURE DEVELOPS

A new feel for life with a Mediterranean flair becomes established in Switzerland. Anyone with a garden or terrace now wants to spend as much time as possible outdoors. "Live your garden", with fluid transitions between indoors and outdoors, develops into an individual lifestyle. Stylistic elements from interior design are transposed to outdoor space. Designer garden furniture comes onto the market, highlighting the fact that outdoor space should be used more for enjoyment now rather than for gardening.

2012 – BACK TO NATURE

The developments of the past few years show just how much importance is now attached to outdoor space in Switzerland. An outdoor space of one's own, irrespective of its size, is an important place of refuge, in close proximity to nature. This has also been manifested in the trend towards a more natural lifestyle, which has led to a dramatic increase in the number of young, urban amateur gardeners. Giardina presents a whole range of ideas and concepts, illustrating how even small spaces can be used to advantage.

HEUTE - GIARDINA IS THE CENTRAL HUB FOR THE SECTOR
