About us

I design gardens and consult clients on specialised maintenance.

I create gardens from large to small. I work independently or with a small team for more complex projects. Plants are my specialty. Whether it’s a full drought-tolerant garden using mostly plants of the garrigue (the typical mediterranean plantset of this area) or a more contemporary mediterranean eclectic cote d’Azur style. I equally enjoy working with both styles and can work with them.

My services include any or all of the following:

- Advise and assist clients in the first stage of exploring garden possibilities
- Create a general concept design
- Help clients select and find the right landscaping company to build the garden
- Create a planting design
and
- Advise and assist the clients gardener or team on high-level maintenance for the garden.

For me a garden is a living thing; it changes, with the seasons and over the years.
That is nature, and the art and joy are to work with that. I take my inspiration from the landscape and gardens around here.
From the beautiful rough garrigue landscape on the hills above Grasse to the lush turn-of-the-century English collector gardens along the coast.
The essence of a garden to me is that it has an innate beauty, is comforting and in harmony with what is around, whether it’s a dry garden or a more eclectic garden.

Member introduction

My name is Diederik,  I am a Dutch garden designer and horticulturist. I have been living in France since 2020. Last year working for the nursery English Garden in Valbonne as a plant specialist, advising clients on maintenance and design, mostly using a Mediterranean planting palette.

Many questions concerned the maintenance of the garden and the search for help on that. Over the years I' ve come to realize that the final image of the garden is only partly defined by the initial design but in fact largely defined by the choices made in maintenance.  Specialized garden maintenance, combined with my creative skills as a designer, are exactly my expertise, so I decided to set up my own company to create gardens, either through design or guiding clients on maintenance.
