Bloom: The Luminous Gardens of Frederico Azevedo presents the accomplished work of Frederico Azevedo - the award-winning Brazilian landscape designer who has established himself as the leading designer of the Hamptons. With stunning projects, Azevedo's work carries an emphasis on flowers which he uses to 'lure the eye through the flow of the design'. His signature curving, floral borders are the hallmark of an Azevedo garden. He also often creates multi-dimensional vistas using layers of flowers, trees, grasses, shrubs, and hedges for a dramatic effect. The results of his impeccable designs are soft and romantic, but always sophisticated, well executed, and most importantly, adaptable to whatever its environment may bring. Discover the luminous world of Frederico Azevedo and his dazzling gardens.
