How Integral Gardens is taking landscaping into soulful territory
Integral Gardens is spearheading a new practice of creative landscaping and garden experiences that supports more personal, more fulfilling, heartfelt and inspiring outdoor spaces
2020 led to a newfound appreciation for blissful gardens – with couples, families, pensioners and communities all seeking something more on their doorstep after spending so much time at home.
Midlands-based Integral Gardens is now spearheading a soulful form of landscaping services and unique experiences for a sustainable modern era built on roots – making these dream gardens a reality.
From the foundation of ‘garden interviews’, Integral Gardens can go beyond building something beautiful, and actually create outdoor spaces that reflect as a dynamic extension of the owners’ specific emotional intelligence, collective intelligence and ancestral resources – promoting well-being, relaxation, healing, contemplation, socializing, and even connecting to people of the past through meaningful elements in memory.
As well as helping homeowners, Integral Gardens works with gardeners, garden designers, architects, engineers, park managers, students, civic managers, decision-makers and organizational managers – ensuring these clients find any information or resources they may be missing from their clients interviews, to provide a service like no other.
Integral Gardens solutions create also spaces where meaning and fulfillment support organizational health. They provide services to park managers and organizations that want to increase their footfall and overall organizational resilience through meeting their unique Organizational Purpose landscaping elements, to be re-introduced into any existing area.
Third generation gardener Carlo Cecchetti founded the company, and works alongside to his wife Franziska Pretsch, with the pair pooling their respective skill-sets in landscaping and systemic practices to provide a modern landscaping service that reflects their clients unique circumstances.
Carlo stated: “ With traditional garden services, there can sometimes be a breakdown in communication between the client and those doing the work, and it feels like there is something missing at the end “.
“ We resolve that. We call ourselves garden facilitators because we create an outlet for our clients’ emotional energies and feelings to be experienced into outdoor spaces. We take a systemic approach to any garden experiences, that we called Integral Gardening, believing the process to be about exploring and finding the elements that sometimes cannot be described. Sometimes, through our systemic approach, we discover elements from the past unknown to our clients that can support the garden experience today “.
“Working with clients, we can identify and visualize beyond rational thinking what they really wish, how it is fulfilling, and how to create that result as a beautiful garden design or that we can facilitate as a heartfelt garden presence “.
“ We can provide personal and fulfilling gardens for all kinds of customers – whether it’s individuals, couples, organizations or whole communities. We can also create a Country of origin and country of immigration park, to facilitate what energies support living abroad “.
” Because our practices facilitate people connecting to the land, our work creates sustainable solutions for living the modern environmental challenges we are increasingly facing “
