Daily Garden 037: Bertotti Landscape -Bardessono Hotel

I should just go ahead and feature the Bardessono hotel as a garden destination…I will get to that. But first I want to keep celebrating the interesting work that some garden pros have done there. Bertotti Landscape Built this great walkway. I love the mix…flagstone, to wood, to poured concrete. Black rocks mix with sleek planting. Study the details….it is what makes this all so interesting. You might remember this is the same place that Flora Grubb installed the vertical tillandsia garden.

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.

    Nice to see a local landscape contractor featured on your site.
    The Bertotti company has a great reputation in my ‘hood for doing quality work and hiring quality minded folks.
    This firm also give A LOT to the local professional community and the general community at large.
    Any idea on who the landscape architect was on this project ?
    Bertotti builds a lot of George Girvin’s designs, I wonder if this is one of his ?
    Another talented landscape architect from the Marin County area.

    If you want to see an interesting landscape which completely hides the hotel you should see Homini Boutique Hotel in the Cradle of Mankind just outside Johannesburg and the beautiful new winery and boutique hotel which replaced the old at Delaire winery in Stellenboch owned by Mr Graff of Graff Diamonds in London. Both are Fabulous and very different, another completely different garden in CapeTown owned by the lady who owns 4 boutique hotels in different countries. All of them stunning in their special way.
