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.
“In gardens of any size, it’s important to break up the space and create different areas,” says Azevedo. “This gives the landscape a narrative, and has illusory effects: small gardens can feel larger and more complex, large gardens can become intimate. Island beds like this one make great dividers, I design them as giant flower arrangements, spectacle from every angle. The two recliners are perfectly placed for relaxed garden viewing—why only put furniture near the pool? I always try to bring social and leisure activities near the flowers.”
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.
