Back garden Rijnstraat Katwijk
17.50m x 23.00m (triangular plot, incl. the house)
October 2013, by Heijbers en Verkleij Hoveniers
A natural, lively garden with variation in space, use and planting’ was what the client wished for. Borders with butterflies-and-bees-attracting perennials and ornamental grasses provide color and vibrancy in every season. Guided trees along the edge ensure privacy; individual fruit- and deciduous trees create verticality and filtered sunlight. There are various sitting areas, i.a. in front of the garden shed near the raised vegetable garden of corten steel. Paths of shells, bricks and concrete tiles in the grass connect the different parts of the garden with each other.
