forest garden next to the house In the Lat Phrao area, with a width of only 6 meters, but covered by the shade of large trees There is a fish pond and a small stream giving the atmosphere like a natural forest.
After taking more than 5 years to build a house until it’s almost finished. It’s time to find a good garden designer to create the garden you want. Fortunately, a neighbor introduced me to a gardener. After following up to see the work at the shop page of Must-Tiwa Onsuwan , this shady forest garden was born in the heart of Lat Phrao area.
“Seeing the style of organizing stuff must like it. I myself would like to have a garden. Talk and feel that yes even though we talked very little I just said that I wanted a forest garden with a pond. must be designed to look The proposed model doesn’t have much detail. Even the tree I never asked how big it was. What are the origins? He didn’t specify what he wanted (laughs), but when he saw how he worked, he was confident. The more the day I used a large crane to lift the trees across the roof of the house to plant in the garden, the more I was amazed.” The owner of the house told about the origin of the garden.
“I started by checking the views from different rooms of the house, the dining room, the office, the relaxation room, in order to design the garden so that it can be viewed from many angles. Pull out the space of the original balcony. add more space To be more practical and more than a hidden fish pond filter system. It can be connected to the entrance staircase of the house and to the dining room in the house. The layout of the house is already beautiful. Out of the loft style with simple shapes. use natural colors So it’s easy to design the garden to look in harmony with the house.” Must, the designer, told us about the way of thinking and working.
“After finishing the big tree then fill the lower level plants to make the garden more complete because the area is quite narrow Therefore, choose a tree with small leaves. and mainly indoor foliage Control the tone to be green in various shades. Add begonias to add some color to the garden. For ground cover, canary ferns and catfish tentacles are used. Ready to plant moss on the rocks to add another green
“I purposely designed the waterfall to be at the very end. But it can be seen from both the dining room and the office. The waterfall is made of granite. and sponge stone It is a small waterfall that is not very high. because the area is small and narrow The noise disturbed the neighbors around. A small S-shaped stream (S) meanders from the waterfall. The fish pond is a figure of eight placed vertically to line up with the area. It gives the feeling that the pond is bigger. But after going down all the trees, I find it difficult to walk. So I made more paths in the garden. by using a large slab of stone laying deep into the pond Which is considered the highlight of this garden.”
I saw a garden full of trees like this. But taking care of it is not as difficult as you think, because you have to put all the watering systems in place. Both fog nozzles and fog nozzles, in addition to creating atmosphere also increases humidity In addition, the area around the garden rarely blows through the wind. The humidity in the garden is still quite high. The plants chosen are slow growing and easy to care for, all you have to do is pick up fallen leaves. Keeping the garden and fish pond clean and apply slow-release fertilizer to the plants every 2-4 months. Just as this helps the garden to stay at home for a long time.
