A miniature garden for maximum enjoyment: by creating a 36 m2 garden, the company Natura Stein AG will prove that it is possible to design a garden with water features, plants and seating in a tiny space. The garden will also feature a state-of-the-art pool with slate-effect ceramic tiles and a movable floor which can be adjusted freely to meet all your bathing needs – from baby paddling pool to counter-current unit. The floor can be set to any height, and when it is closed the area can be used for seating.
Giannini Graniti, Schättin Gartenbau and garden designer Leonardo Magatti present an ideas garden titled “Garden game”: an idyllic, natural garden that combines design and beauty with a simple game. Specially for Giardina, Leonardo Magatti has designed outdoor furniture and elements in Ticino granite. Here for the first time he has combined the elegant natural stone with steel, thus presenting it in a completely new light. The project sees itself as a new interpretation of outdoor space: the guide to the garden lets the visitor the explore a garden design combined with a playful aspect. Unexpected details surprise the visitor. Rare plants such as the camphor tree (Cinnamomum camphora) and a 15-year-old wisteria add delightful touches.Download report (GER)
Christoph Wegelin designs natural gardens with a poetic touch. For him, the use of natural materials is essential for creating a harmonious garden. He uses one of the most natural construction materials, and one which is also very much on trend: rammed earth. In his gardens, this material is transformed not only into various design elements but is also used to make pizza ovens, the construction of which is one of his specialisms. He also makes skilful use of scrap wood, thus creating a holistic and natural atmosphere. In his small garden at Giardina 2017, he will combine these two natural materials in a skilful manner and display one of his unique clay ovens.

Luserna gneiss, terracotta, natural wood and linen join forces with much-loved plants to create a small garden with a touch of Mediterranean charm. The elegant sweep of the plant-laden dry stone wall is particularly eye-catching. The garden features aromatic ornamental shrubs such as laurestine and osmanthus, unusual flowering plants (Enkianthus perulatus) and a wonderful Japanese umbrella pine, and this diversity ensures that the flowerbeds remain attractive even after the blooming period is over. Here, designer Sabine Lechner from Lechner Garden Design presents the centrepiece of her show garden, which was recently chosen to be part of the book “Gardens of the year” (2007) by the Callwey Verlag publishing house upon the recommendation of a jury of experts. The recently published coffee-table book is available at Giardina.

An elegant, architecturally designed privacy screen that also provides shade – the innovative specialist wood company Hartwag AG is making its mark at Giardina with this new idea. Privacy screening and shade in themselves are nothing new. What is novel, though, is the idea of fulfilling both needs at the same time with a single construction in certified cedar wood. This is illustrated impressively by Hartwag in the ideas garden.

Aargau Museum’s show garden takes visitors all the way back to the 18th century. The historical pleasure garden exhibits typical elements of a baroque castle garden: colourful herbaceous borders and romantic benches surrounding a pavilion invite visitors to look and linger. Modelled on the original garden at Wildegg Castle, gravel paths lead to the centre of the garden. The beautiful castle grounds were a haven of relaxation for the patrician Effinger family, who lived at Wildegg Castle from 1483 to 1912.
