For Camille Muller, the garden is not a decoration because it is above all an ecosystem. Between natural gardens in the countryside and technical challenges in the city, he creates original and beautiful spaces while respecting the environment. He gave us his time to present his work to us and give us some advice.
I like plants and little town so at home, I wanted to nibble on concrete. To transform a space into a garden, you must pay attention to techniques such as overloading, watering or waterproofing. By following the rules, you can have a successful garden anywhere. And if technique is essential in an urban environment, in a natural space, it is the knowledge of plants that is essential. You don't place a palm tree or an olive tree anywhere.
The most important thing is to respect the constraints of the place, whether on the terrace, the balcony or even on a window sill. First, it is important to respect the authorized loads, which must not exceed 250 kg per square meter. Plants, wet earth and pots, it all gets very heavy! It is therefore preferable to use a light and draining mixture. Choose it natural like potting soil and pozzolana. And think of an automatic watering to prevent your plantations from dying in summer. Then, it is necessary to make so that the plants can flourish by choosing the species well because you play with living things. So, in the shade, we opt for an undergrowth garden with ferns, mosses or holly. In the sun, it's more complicated: heat in summer, cold in winter, so you can opt for continental plants. The idea is to respect the microclimate of the place. This is what makes the strength of each garden in the manner of the natural places that we like (seaside vegetation, or that of the mountain pastures). In town, if you want to bring in a bit of nature, think carefully to do it in an ecological way because amateur gardeners often pollute without realizing it.
I have always had an ecological approach which is above all to have common sense, and this long before it was fashionable. People used to live in the countryside and recycle everything, whether it be compost or animal feed. The garden is precisely a way to rediscover real gestures and rediscover the concept of the seasons. Now, I claim ecology in my gardens, this is an accepted part of my work. What is amazing and touching is that all the new customers follow me in this choice. In a garden, it is not necessary to use only new. On the contrary, recycling stimulates the imagination while saving money!
