Garden Martin Brejník, Černošice

Martin is promising “young” rock gardener and designer of gardens. His home limestone rock garden is one man rock work. Stones, large slabs are delivered with a track from Czech Karst quarry and all the transport and setting rocks into position is just enormous effort of one slim 50 years old gentleman. The rock work has two parts: one older with layers tilted to 30 degrees from horizon level and the second larger portion with deep canyon for collecting rain water has vertical layers. Top dressing is from limestone pieces. The great display in May is done with his large collection of small hardy Daphnes; all day sun treatment is seen in their blooming, compact growth and colour of the leaves. Martin is perfect in details of paths and stony troughs. Some alpines show nice effect planted itself with self sowing for example yellow Degenia velebitica.
