Last year at Casa Debbio we decided to plant a new garden on the terrace below the house. We had some pine trees removed, which has allowed a walnut tree and a fig tree to get more light and space, and gave us a new area to plant.
This is what the new terrace looked like at the end of spring last year.
Here is what it looked like at the end of spring this year.
We are absolutely delighted with the results. Weeks of rain may have ruined the roses and geraniums, but it certainly made everything grow. Last spring was quite dry and I spent hours every other day watering the new plants. This year I didn’t have to do it at all.
The garden behind the house is growing well too, the peonies and hydrangeas have done very well.
Watching the garden for a whole year is amazing.
Here is the entrance to the house in February.
Here it is in early spring.
The terrace in front of the house is looking good with the new pergola.
I can’t wait to see what happens next year. We are going to plant lavender all along the road up to the house. I think it will look great.
We have left the garden in Filippo’s capable hands until we return. He takes great care of everything as well as meeting our visitors and introducing them to Casa Debbio.
There are still a couple of weeks available for rent at Casa Debbio this summer…tell your friends.
