Oostkamp

This landscape project involved restoring a château park that had been expanded several times over the years. 

First the differences in level were evened out. Then an area was made for the swimming pool in the garden’s most lavishly planted area, with vegetation designed to be particularly attractive in the summer. The combination of rhododendrons and woodland plants creates a perfect frame for a view of the park and looks different from every angle. 

Each part of the park has its own colors, mainly thanks to seasonally flowering shrubs with striking autumn foliage. The existing pond was renovated. Its banks were cleared and redeveloped as ecologically as possible, to allow for natural and aesthetic evolution over the next sixty to eighty years.
