Landscaping, landforms

Landscaing is the biggest, longest, and often most expensive part of the construction. The technically necessary soilworks, the planting pits, the larger and smaller hills, the installation of the utility devices and the irrigation system, the lighting, the place of rocks determine the structure of a garden. These are less visible parts that have fundamentally great affects.

It is possible to move some shrubs or trees e.g into an opposit corner, but the nehligently-made terrain and soil works cannot be changed, furthermore they can affect the life of the garden adversly in long terms. Also, hills and embracing spaces made by landforming will be significant elements of the garden with serious functions. That is why it is better to pay attention to the installations.


Garden furniture, garden buildings

Garden furniture: benches, garden sofas, outdoor fireplaces, grill and barbecue places, artworks, vessels, flower pots, bird feeders and drinkers, lamps, litterboxes. Garden buildings: retaining walls, stairs, pergolas, climber-screens, summer houses, trellises, garden houses, garden roads, sidewalks, pavements, terraces, stepping stones.


Water features (garden ponds, streams, waterfalls, water-games)

Our mystical attraction to the water may originates from the time before birth, the mother's womb. During the 9 months, being surrounded by the amniotic fluid, provided joy, security, and love. Later on, when we grow up and swimming or diving or just having  a bath or shower or sauna, we may relive this peace and happyness.

The desire for this particular protection and embracement is true not only in physical way, but menthal too. Listening to a symphonic orchestra, or reading a book create an athmosphere in which our mind can deepen. This immersion and hugging experience is what we would like to offer you with the water in the garden.


Rockeries, stone gardens

Rockeries, stone gardens can be the most prominent and attractive parts of the garden with the surrounding landforms and/or water feature.

The stone and the plant are equal in the Japanese garden design culture. But it is not such a strange idea, if we think of rocks that are enclosing the events of 200 million years in their several tons of weight. We select the fossil-impressed limestone rocks by hand at the stone mines so that these natural masterpieces can be built into the garden's structure withour any harm

The rocks perfuse the garden with calmness and dignity, while the plants give movements and life. The water running through the rocks gives another quality with its physical state and soft appearance. How comforting it is to listen to a splashing stream and to see the bathing birds, isn't it?



Trees: They can create penetrated wall between the garden and the landscape.  They has always been close to the people’s hearts with their shadows, winter silhouettes, fineness and colors of leaves, fruits, blossoms, and respectable dimensions. Maybe that's why it is said that spirits are living inside them, lifting the branches high, making connections between heaven and earth. 

The trees are definitely one of the most dominant vertical elements of the space, so it does matter what kind of species we choose and how they are planted. We recommend several times educated old trees as they can immediately make the garden outstanding. But with proper planting, the trees will soon determine the garden anyway.

Shrubs or in other words, bushes: They are the type of plants that connect the trees with the groundcover plants. The shrubs shape up the garden, border and hug the spaces and paths, hidden nooks, and also, soften the appearance of sculptures, garden rocks, buildings. For example  at the Japanese gardens the plasticity of the shrubs represent a miniature nature with the waving, dense hedges. 

There are many ways to organize the shrubs, like the time of blooming, the shape of the plant, the leaf color, the size, the soil and light requirements… etc. but now we would like to clarify only the decidious and evergreen cathegory. The decidious ones release their leaves in autumn and are bald (as Kojac) in wintertime, while the evergreens are full of leaves all through the year. However, the  „evergreens” are not just conifer (dwarf pine, yew, juniper) and scale-like leaved pines (thuja, false cypress) but broad-leaved evergreens as well, thus cherry laurel, mahonia, boxwood. There are winter-greens too, which are usually green during the cold months. They loose the leaves only in very cold weather, and grow them again in spring.

Perennials, bulbs and tubers: For the firt sight they seem to be insignificant, but this is the group that is the closest to our heart. They can refine the hard habit of trees and shrubs only with the filigree leaves and blossoms. The perennials can give permanent colors to a garden, just when the flowering of the shrubs and trees is over. The bulbous and tuberous plants are the first messengers of the spring, and - as the first ones in general - have been always the most cherished.

Annuals and biennials: The garden is like an undulating, pulsating, and ever-changing flood of flowers, but the blooming culminates only in spring, early-summer and autumn. Frequented locations, entrances need the plants that are beautiful from spring till winter. These are called annual flowers and biennial flowers. 

The annual flowers are decorating from May till the frosts, the biennials from October till the beginning of summer. Annuals are hard to be listed: marigold, petunias, begonias, sages are the favourites of our gardens. Biennials include pansies, forget-me-not, daisies, which exhilarate the autumn, the spring, and the winter landscape.


Lawn and grass in garden

The meaning of the lawn and the grass is used as synonyms in the everyday life. But in the garden constraction they mean two different qualities. Grass – less fine-leaved grasses that create loose structures and have less needs. Rarely cutting, or rather mowing is enough, and extensive maintainance is required. Lawn – regularly cut, well-kept, dense, carpet-like grass cover, which is made of only thin and fine-leaved grasses. The aesthetic aspect is primary, and it means intensive care.

The basic of every garden is the grass yard from fine-leaved grasses. The lawn is the horizontal resignation of the hectic cavalcade of the vertical plants. The way how it looks like determines the whole garden’s quality.

With our range of machines we are able to prepare larger areas by grass seeding or sod. Qualitatively both provide the same result, but the sod gives an immediately usable surface, while a seeded area needs 6-8 cuts. In the soil preparation and maintaniance these two technologies are similar. We use different seeds for the different usages and purposes. We always hand over our lawns after two cuts and all the risks (rainstorms, new mole family, windstorm, etc) imposed on us.



Although it is said that everybody knows planting and only needs a spade, it really can make a difference. Seriously diverse knowledge is required for planting with guarantee, which affects  the soil science, the nutrient supply, the water management, the pest control and other important topics. The plants are usually placed into a bed with powered cow manure and Osmocote Plus fertilizer (12-14 months active period), and occasionally we improve it with other materials too (alginit, compost, etc). Our warranty on the plants and plantings is one year, if  the irrigation is provided.
