CONSTRUCTION OF THE ROSE GARDEN BELOW GAZEBO BEGUN

Construction of the rose garden below Gazebo begun. This landscape project is in accordance with the architecture of the area, archive materials, historical matrix, climate, and is based on preservation of evident design values with stylistic characteristics of natural, English, landscape design of the Park that is characterized by playfulness of lines without strict forms and sharp, emphasized edges. A special emphasize is placed to the romantic atmosphere, which is accented by usage of roses. Such a concept of designing a space by its formation does not close views, but forms a pleasant transition to accents of the surrounding area that encompasses the Gazebo, the Rock center and the Main Alley.

This rose garden will turn heads from one detail to the other with its rich colors and variability, and will form a pleasant picture from various points in space.
