The most striking feature of this design is the beautiful dissectum maple at the centre, with its vibrantly coloured foliage. Surrounding the tree is a seating area with gravel paving. Next to this, a former lotus flower pool has been turned into a small poultry pen, with graceful exterior decorations. The perimeter of the property is bordered with a variety of pants: for shade (Ophiopogon, Hosta, Liriope, Hydrangea..), and flowering (Geranium, Rosa Iceberg, Clematis armandii, Malus ‘Red Sentinel’…).A wooden children’s playhouse was built beneath the old linden tree, and a curved wooden bench constructed around its trunk.
