Chamonix Chalet, France
- Cold Climate
- Ski Chalets
This luxury chalet located in the hills of Chamonix, France overlooks the mountain ranges of Mont Blanc. The garden brief was to design an enclosed space, while still maintaining views out into the wider landscape.
Planting was selected to give textural interest while being hardy enough to withstand the freezing winters of the alpine environment. Boundary planting of Thuja occidentalis ‘Smaragd’ and other conifers tie into the surrounding mountainous landscape.
Bottagisio Decoux hand crafted boulders were commissioned to be placed amongst the herbaceous borders. Blushes of spring colour are off-set with the sculptural elements within the garden. Creating a tranquil space to enjoy year round.
