A design based on plants
Lionel principally advises on solutions based on plants and keeps hard landscaping to a minimum. Thanks to his profound knowledge of a large variety of plants and their natural habitats, he creates naturalistic planting schemes that are both aesthetic and of minimal maintenance. His approach is far from conceptual but rooted in the gardener’s common sense.
A design based on the client
Each of Lionel’s design is unique, adapted to the site and reflects the client’s need and desires. Business is conducted with client’s best interest as a central value. He hence favors the development of long-term client relationship and advises on solutions that best balance aesthetical aspects with technical and budget constraints. Furthermore, to ensure maximum alignment of interest, his pricing model decorrelates his fees from the amount of prescribed work.
A design based on sustainability
Sustainability is at the heart of Lionel’s approach. This term is often used abusively and reflects multiple realities. To his opinion, it encompasses many aspects such as (1) the limitation of chemical inputs and the use of non sustainable resources destroying ecosystems, such as peat (2) an integrated management of green “waste” on site (3) the collaboration with a network of certified (e.g. Bio Suisse), preferably local partners (4) the promotion of environmental best-practice among suppliers and contractors (5) the integration of the entire life-cycle of materials used throughout a project.
