Around a beautiful Flemish farmhouse in Roksem is a superb holiday garden and outdoor living space. The rural character of the home flows seamlessly into the garden, where lush planting is broken up by contemporary accents, such as sleek garden furniture and a wooden deck. Green structures made up of grasses and perennials are complemented by multi-stem trident maples, paperbark maples and goldenrain trees. Along the walls, pear trees have been planted, which reinforce the rural character. In the centre of the garden is a unique swimming pond with a Mediterranean feel thanks to the standard weeping silver-leafed pear tree that is reflected in the water. A sophisticated lighting plan brings the feeling of a living room outside in the evening.
