A natural xerigarden

A natural xerigarden on the roofs in front of our windows starts to flourishing. It’s inspiring to see how few resources some plants need!  The invasive behavior of the succulent plants should not be forgotten though: Kalanchoe serrata with beautiful red flowers came from Madagascar. 

These days we have started planting the trees at Sa Tanca des Carritx!

 

30 Celtic australis and 12 Populus nigra will form a "green scarf" embracing the future house and protecting its inhabitants from the ruthless summer sun. In the winter, when the leaves fall off, the house will enjoy gentle winter sun while the long slim shades of the branches will draw graceful patterns all around.

Study of the vegetation within the Bunyolí manor (Majorca, Spain)

The present study contributes to the understanding of the vegetation around the Majorcan rural houses, a topic of a little research but of a huge importance for a coherent landscape design in Majorcan manors. The study was held in the Bunyolí manor in Establiments, Majorca. Our objective was to document and describe the vegetation on the entrance to the house, patio, garden, orchard and surrounding fields and to understand the role it was playing historically in the manor. Majorcan rural houses are one of the most important landscape and anthropological goods of the island and we consider their conservation as one of the most important tasks.
