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.
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.
