This garden imagines the future as being in a state of continuous technical development and plays as if with coloured pixels, with nothing being better able to communicate colour than plants. This interpretation of the future fully integrates environmental protection, which has at last found a way to enter into everyone’s consciousness. Designed with environmental needs taken into consideration, this garden is sustainable, with a reduced or zero impact, uses water very sparingly and employs recovered, recycled and reused materials.
As a key element, water could not be left out, even of a garden of the future. Water represents our most precious resource and clearly deserves a central place, in the form of a pond. Water is also the source of life. Throughout its own cycle, it is a source of universal vitality. Recycled, coloured drums thus live a new life in the form of containers for aquatic plants, which in turn purify and oxygenate the water. The water is stirred and oxygenated by a rudimentary but ecological system activated by wind turbines.
