Green With Envy: Garden Inspo From Frederico Azevedo
Each week throughout the summer, The Daily will be highlighting one stunning garden view from award winning landscape designer Frederico Azevedo, owner of Unlimited Earth Care, Inc. Let the beauty of his creations wash over you and get inspired to go digging in the dirt yourself this summer.
“When designing a garden, it’s important to think about direction and form,” says Azevedo. “This floral meadow is planted with vertical native switchgrass and spiked blooms such as Lythrum, veronicastrum, agastache, and nepeta. To break up the horizontality, I planted accents of round Rozanne Geraniums and Shasta daisies, and the neat evergreen border grounds the intentionally wild meadow.”
Born in Porto Alegre, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil in 1962, Frederico Azevedo has studied landscape design in Brazil, England, and the U.S. and is a member of the Association of Professional Landscape Designers, the American Horticultural Society, and the Horticultural Alliance of the Hamptons. His latest book, Bloom: The Luminous Gardens of Frederico Azevedo, is available now at Pointedleafpress.com and on Amazon.
