The gardens were made by Henk Gerritsen and the Anton Schlepers, guided by Mien Ruys gaden design philosophy of 'a wild planting in a strong design' and remembering the beautiful flower meadows of Central and Southern Europe. Plants were obtained from the nursery of Piet Oudolf. Henk Gerritsen explains the design principle as follows: 'What is straight, should be curved, what is curved, should be straight. Meaning: in a garden where everything is straight, the walls or hedges around it and the path through it, the secondary landscaping should be curved: sloping or freakish paths, hedges, lawns or borders and the other way around: in a freakish or shapeless garden the secondary landscaping should be straight, in order to obtain a harmonious image.' and 'Plants that can't live without the use of chemical fertilizers or pesticides don't belong in my garden.'

In this garden you get the feeling, all plants just grow here naturally. Very relaxing and inspiring. An overwhelming amount of flowers, butterflies, surprising objects and shapes still give a peaceful and quiet impression.
