(CS) For some 25 years Marianne Jacoby has been tending to her garden in Alzingen, learning by doing as the garden grew.

“At the beginning I didn't know anything about garden,” Jacoby confessed. “I was inspired by what I found in books and bit by bit the garden took form.”

Together with her husband, Jacoby created a green oasis in the back garden of their home in Alzingen, featuring a terrace, a stone garden shed from the UK and a large herb garden.

Despite all these different elements the garden does not look formal and Jacoby has made it a point to let nature reign in her little paradise, attracting birds and wildlife.

The garden can be visited upon appointment. To get in touch with Marianne Jacoby call +352 36 74 25
