Daily Garden 037: Bertotti Landscape -Bardessono Hotel

April 20, 2009

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.

    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.
