Tell us about your backgroundAfter training as a gardener at the MFR du Grand Mas in Uzès, in 1982 I started a garden creation and maintenance company. Very quickly, I turned to natural gardens.

Do you have any advice for those who would like to have several different atmospheres in their garden?The gaze must gradually discover the different atmospheres.

If there is enough space, transitions materialized by plants or empty spaces can be envisaged. The configuration of certain small gardens naturally lends itself to several atmospheres, because the gaze does not cover the entire garden. This is the case of gardens with three zones, the front, one side and the back of the house.
Can we visit yours?From spring to autumn, opening dates are scheduled, sometimes within the framework of regional events, such as "Temps des Jardins en Languedoc Roussillon", or national events such as "Rendez-vous aux jardins", but not only. The visits to the gardens are free, but we often offer entertainment (picking wild salads, field buffets, introduction to entomology, etc.), artistic exhibitions. There are also "special flowering" days outside the program, which can only be scheduled 15 days in advance, to make the public discover exceptional flowerings: white wisteria, grasses and fall colors ...
