Mediterranean stands for a climate zone,
but also an attitude to life.
In the early 1990s Henning Breimann created his first Mediterranean garden on Lake Maggiore. That was the start of a great love and passion. Many of his works now rate as showpieces for this special kind of garden design that requires one thing above all: extensive knowledge.
The Mediterranean climate is characterised by dry, hot, sunlit summers and rainy, mild winters. Nowhere else in the world except in deserts is there so much light. This unique climate prevails in the Mediterranean area, in California, South Africa, Chile and the extreme west and east of Australia. In the course of evolution, completely different plant communities have evolved there from those known in the rest of the world. The specific weather conditions and particular quality of the mostly calcareous and heavy soils call for a unique approach.
