The Moorish Gardens
The famous gardens of Spain realized in the ex-caliphates
ruled by the Arabs reveals today numerous traditional elements in the
Moorish gardens or the Andalusia gardens background.
The intimacy cult, the respect for each water drop
learned in the tough landscape of the desert, the inclination to meditation
specific to Arabic world, all have led to realization of an closed
paradise to many and a open garden to few. In this way a poet from
Grenada defines the notion of patio, the essential scheme of
the Moorish garden that reminds of the circle disposition of tents
In patio, all plants must be discreetly arranged,
must not reciprocally embarrass, to distinguish the colour and light
that they are emitting. The water itself must be discreet and the noise
of a artesian fountain is excluded. The light is gradually conducted,
penetrating between garden surrounding colonnades, straining through
this intermediary space and arriving in the interior. The element attracting
the looks is represented by a fountain or a waterfall, reminding of
the desert oases and the water really venerated by the Arabs.
In this compartment there are plants specific to desert
areas that have permitted us the realization of an autumnal patio.
In this way we have arranged an discreet space presented as a small
garden open to all. Here, you will identify a series of characteristic
elements created by us prevalently using chrysanthemums varieties alongside
roses, orange and lemon trees, plants specific to Moorish gardens.
