IT IS A PLEASURE FOR US
TO DESIGN SPACE AROUND YOU
TOGETHER WITH YOU

Historical park renewal
Reconstruction and revitalisation of park monuments
New garden planning
Garden design
Reconstruction and revitalisation of orchards
Water in the garden
Irrigation systems

We take advantage of either traditional or modern methods while designing space in your surroundings, whether gardens, parks, public space or terraces and balconies. Our desire is to create environment where you shall spend great deal of your free time. Rest, relax, see how your kids are growing up, welcome your friends or just lay back and watch the plants and animals in their natural habitat. Daily rhythm or seasonal changes will not be a stereotype of everyday life anymore. From now on, they will provide the cause of changes and metamorphoses around you that you will soon notice. You shall find plants designed in a special way,

so you can relish blooming flowers from early spring until late autumn
these flowers will reflect natural conditions of their environment
attract a number of animals, many types of birds, plenty of small vertebrates and invertebrates that bring life to your garden
so you can enjoy your favourite trees, bushes, creepers, flowers, grasses and petit herbs

An important part of our job is so called Participative Planning. This complex term offers methods that are successfully used around the globe and in our country as well. They are used mainly for creation of public space involving general public in the designing process. However, an essential fact is being forgotten often while designing gardens. The fact that garden is made for those people, whose home it surrounds. Participative planning principle includes owners of the garden in its design and offers them active participation. We guide the owner, incorporate his requirements and ideas into the space according to its proportions, conditions, plants needs and their ecological ties. Only then can we create a piece of work that is a true reflection of the owner and:

an interpretation his taste,
an expansion of house interior towards the open space,
an architectural part of the building it surrounds,
a highlight of the area
and mainly and finally: owners identify themselves with their garden. Impersonal project of author who will never use his creation suddenly becomes a space where his habitants will feel at home. It will provide them with a base and a retreat in busy times of the third millennium.

Arboristics is a complex approach towards wooden plants care focusing on overall process of cultivation and development of plants, from bedding of young specimen through replanting up to old and senescent tree care. Arboristics as line of work deals with all processes and activities in terms of cultivation and care of wooden plants. It pays attention to reproduction and cultivation technologies, site planting, protection of younger and grown plants as well as recovery of plants damaged mechanically, physiologically, by diseases or pest. Arboristics is also focused on protection of wooden plants at specific locations or building sites, providing them with optimal operational security.
Section or cutting of large trees is a very dangerous activity requiring special and professional knowledge and equipment. If it is necessary to work in heights or use special equipment (chainsaw, ropes, clamps, etc.) it is best to ask professionals for help – arborists, who are trained to care for trees. The arborist will advise you which type of section is necessary to improve health, overall security or the look of your tree. Professional arboristic company will provide you on request with services of specialists who posses all the equipment and meet lawful conditions of safe work at heights.

Avoid companies that practice unnatural forms and dangerous methods of intervention into the life of a tree:
Crown decapitation is a form of radical section of tree crown without any objective reason that often causes immediate reduction of overall security, threatens the health of the tree as well as its general appearance. Professional arborist knows that decapitation causes a irreversible damage to the affected tree.
Use of climbing irons is a destructive form of a climb to the crown of a tree. It is permitted only with trees intended for clearance, where it helps to speed up work.

SCIENCE AND RESEARCH


Our team is purposefully comprised of breadth extent of research and disciplines so it could comprehensively perceive and systematically assess biotic relation complex in environment surrounded us and apply research knowledge into practical envrionment designing. It is based on scientific disciplines related to theoretical and practical applied ecology. We focus on woody plants research in urban and rural areas, landscape in itself, utilitarian impact and arable land use ecological aspects in our scientific portfolio. Certainly, we thanks to our partners , primarily to Department of Landscape Planning and Design at Technical Univerzity of Zvolen for the scientific and research possibilities and which is creating the appropriate base for acquiring new knowledge in subject areas and consequently putting it into practice.

We have been practising systematical scientific and research work for more than ten years. The work genesis could be possibly described as a continuity from the first published papers dedicated to systematical botany and fytocenology, ecological aspects of spreading formation non-forested woody plants vegetation in landscape and its relation to biotops. Since 2005 we have been focusing more on woody plants expansing in urban environment, putting the accent on spreading of introducted ( foreign) woody plants. Orientation on processes of woody plants invasion and effort to categorize introducted woody plants by its spreading potential is related to the mentioned above More specific it is a case of purposeful research in urban environment related to consequent scientific-research focus on historical park objekts and composed vegetation. In this period we have achieved participation on creating innovation methods for evaluation of woody plants distribution, park objects and non-forest woody plants putting the emphasis on woody plants distribution into the open landscape.

Consequently has come follow-up surveys, which were oriented on landscape succession processes, more specific on their potential, scale and the rapidness of distributińg woody plants into the open landscape in a natural way. We have focused particularly on deserted landscape parts, the areas which has been abandonned and the cultivation is beeing absented. From the mentioned above it is evident that we focus the most beside the urban environment on agricultural landscape structures.

Personally we deal with the orchards, their further beneficial perspectvies including old orchard´s sustainability. Here we find close relation to the research of woody plants succession particularly with the practical discipline woody plants tretment and arboristic cultivation.

Nowadays ours efforts are reaching directions of research activities to succesion prognose processes broadly in Slovak area, evaluation park object, vegetation formations in general, formulation of basic principles of Eco-design and thus further design closely natural principles greenery´s compositon.
