Barbara Negretti – Garden Design

Profile

Barbara Negretti is an award winning garden designer, realizing green creations with expertise and passion: gardens, balcony, public areas and exhibitions. She is also specialized in rehabilitation of historic gardens.
She pays special attention to the project implementation phase, the choice of plants to grow and the garden construction.
She opened her design studio in 2000, working both as partner with professionals, and as independent consultant for green maintenance companies and nurseries.
The different steps for the creation of a green space are carefully maintained and followed in detail, the field survey, the preliminary draft, the executive details, the choice of plants, materials, relationships with suppliers, the start up and maintenance over time.
Barbara’s main drive is the relationship with her customers. She not only searches to meet their expressed demands, but also to understand and realise their hidden desires.
She has always strived to find a precise style that characterizes the space without estranging it from the surrounding environment.
