Daily Garden: Patrizio’s Tuscan Farmhouse

podere palazzo tuscan farmhouse garden

Podere Palazzo is the tuscan farmhouse vacation home of Chicago based designer Patrizio Fradiani.  The home is rent-able for a holiday stay in Tuscan region of Italy.  My friend sent me the link from designtripper when I recently mentioned my trip later this year to Italy.   It is a lovely place — and while it is a bit south of the route I will be traveling, the gardens are certainly worth a mention here for their relaxed mix of modern and traditional styling that seems quite at home in the beatuiful hills. I do wish that this were an option for our trip!

The hilltop garden is full of berries, grapes, berbs and even a rare variety of olive brought north from the island of sicily. There are of course the steroetypical but perfect spindly cypress but also a flock of sheep, and the odd wild boar to keep the garden lively.

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.

    Beautiful!
    It would be marvelous to spend a holiday there.
    I can imagine falling asleep on that hammock feeling the warmth of the afternoon sun.
