The Bush

The park is surrounded by a hedge, which defines the borders, and is made up of a mixture of evergreen shrubs of various species that come from our Mediterranean area. The flowering changes during the various seasons, in colours and fragrances.

This system limits the garden space, avoiding the creation of regular barriers which are often pruned in perfect geometric shapes that give a sense of walls. Instead, the variety of the different heights of the species, left to grow in a natural and controlled disorder, which leads to a continuous ribbon of vegetation, extending and enlarging the space.
