the Garden


The Garden Hotel Lucrezia was born from the idea of a garden designer and a landscape architect who designed according to their idea of the «new Mediterranean garden». Designed and created by Leo Minniti and Italo Vacca, owner of the plant nursery I campi, in Milis, the garden reflects their idea of the new Mediterranean garden. the spectacular visual impact is obtained from the structures, and not by the traditional combination of tones and colors.


"Returning to the hotel after a day immersed in the beauty of the Sinis peninsula — Leo Minniti sais — we did not want all of this beauty to be over all at once, in the small courtyard the dialogue with the nature should continue to whisper with the surrounding landscape, we tried to create a «soft landing».


"The choice of plants - echoes Italo Vacca - intended to preserve the enchantment of the landscape trying to enhance it even more. " Here then is that the stipa tenuissima (a grass ornamental) changes its hair from green to gold in summer, when the Sardinian countryside takes on endless stretches of golden. Silver Seneca leuchostachys «silver dust» refers to the gray of the olive groves and patches of sagebrush. The use of large Tulbaghia purple spots reminiscent of its structure and to those of its flowering daffodils. The Acanthus mollis, which thrives in the shade of a gigantic fig tree, the pattern repeats recurrent spontaneous so many borders in June decorate with making lush even the poor mule track. The wild flowers of spring echo of the Sardinian countryside in clouds of white gaura and the same effect is given on the edge of the garden with delicate flowers of the erigeron karviskianus. In the shadow of century-old wisteria lays the Bergen cordifolia and the ophiopogon.


The colors are those of the forest, scrub and dunes. Never too colorful, finely woven, but with substantial appearances and repetitions of the same species.


"The intent — Minniti states — is to create textures which marry with the landscape, with some soft colorful accents. "
