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.
“Waterfront gardens are about balance,” says Azevedo. “There’s already a beautiful view here, so I used a solid garden of sunny rudbeckia bordered with clusters of light fountain grasses to enhance the view without overpowering it. I also framed the view with two large trees, giving the water an introduction and a sense of suspense.”
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.
