Each week throughout the summer, The Daily will be highlighting one stunning garden view from award winning landscape designer Frederico Azevedo, owner of Unlimited Earth Care, Inc. Let the beauty of his creations wash over you and get inspired to go digging in the dirt yourself this summer.
“This is a more minimal expression of a meadow, pictured here in early spring,” says Azevedo. “Crocus, narcissus, daffodils, tulips, and muscari bulbs are planted in the fall, bloom in early spring, and return to green in time to mow the grass for summer. This garden is all about timing. I design for every season, so I keep in mind each plant’s unique bloom cycle to ensure each season has a suitable landscape. It’s a fresh green garden with brief performances of color as a prelude to summer.”
Born in Porto Alegre, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil in 1962, Frederico Azevedo has studied landscape design in Brazil, England, and the U.S. and is a member of the Association of Professional Landscape Designers, the American Horticultural Society, and the Horticultural Alliance of the Hamptons. His latest book, Bloom: The Luminous Gardens of Frederico Azevedo, is available now at Pointedleafpress.com and on Amazon.
