Bloom the Luminous Gardens of Frederico Azevedo


BloomBloom the Luminous Gardens of Frederico Azevedo

Upon opening the book one starts to see the creative genius of this incredible landscape architect. Born in Brazil, Frederico Azevedo studied landscape design in his home country as well as in England and the United States.  Azevedo‘s award-winning designs have been recognized internationally in landscaping and architectural publications. He frequently uses native plants to create his gorgeous sustainable vistas. His use of texture and color bring beauty to yards worldwide. The subtle changes in the hue of leaves, the vivid explosions of color in bloom create a beautiful topography. I love how Azevedo can gently coax the eye any direction with the flowing lines of his stunningly designed terrain. Beautiful photography graces the pages of this new book from Pointed Leaf Press.

Bloom: The Luminous Gardens of Frederico Azevedo presents the accomplished work of Frederico Azevedo – the Brazilian landscape designer who has established himself as the leading gardener of the Hamptons. With stunning projects all over Long Island, Azevedo’s work carries an emphasis on flowers which he uses to ‘lure the eye through the flow of the design’. His signature curving, floral borders are the hallmark of an Azevedo garden. He also often creates multi-dimensional vistas using layers of flowers, trees, grasses, shrubs, and hedges for a dramatic effect. The results of his impeccable designs are soft and romantic, but always sophisticated, well executed, and most importantly, adaptable to whatever its environment may bring. Discover the luminous world of Frederico Azevedo and his dazzling gardens.
