In my last home deco post, I have told you about my little parisian yard.
My little piece of nature, not very big, about 35 sq yards, but enough for me to survive in Paris.
A few months ago, I had the chance to get the help of a gardening coach whom entirely redid my little yard. Before its complete facelift, it looked like crap, gravel everywhere and a monotonous tree hedge.
Pascal Laforge, gardening coach at Truffaut’s, worked on the plans based on my wishes and the difficulty of the site, to wit a narrow and long yard with a south-east exposure. He literally changed it into heaven !
I wanted green, relief, flowers, a little vegetable garden, an area for Lino to play in and a space for relaxation.
Pascal divided the yard in two sides. On one side, the very green part with several varieties of evergreen bushes, green shades and some touches of color with my favorite flowers : a camelia, some hydrangeas. At the center of it all sits my palm tree, it’s been following me for 14 years, it’s very cumbersome but I’ve always found a place to put it. It likes it very much here.
On the other side of the yard, Pascal laid some composite wooden floor in dark tones, it’s a more contemporary space with concrete trays, my wooden and teak furniture. To bright things up, my reading space, right in front of my bedroom with a Monceau chair and its footrest from Fermob. I love to sit down here, read, take a little nap.
The rendering is really great, it’s still constantly in progress and I will still add a few personal touches.
If, like me, you’re a total fan of nature and that you like good tips on plants, but also on decoration, DIYs, pets… I recommend Truffaut’s Facebook page.
I’ll let you take a tour of my yard with these few pictures. And next time, I will share with you my DIY tutorial for terrariums.
Do you also have a few plants at home ? Which are your favorites ?
