Landscape designer Frederico Azevedo approaches his bold “outdoor rooms” with the memories of his childhood in Brazil.
It was loud and colorful — manifesting today in his signature curving, floral borders and the integration of native and well-adapted plants, the hallmarks of an Azevedo garden.
He explores his creativity in his latest book, “Bloom: The Luminous Gardens of Frederico Azevedo,” a 200-page tome of his multi-dimensional vistas using layers of flowers, trees, grasses, shrubs and hedges to dramatic effect.
“The results of his impeccable designs are soft and romantic, always sophisticated and well executed, and most importantly, site-specific to the unique conditions of any environment,” according to a press release. “Discover the luminous world of Frederico Azevedo and his dazzling gardens.”
After studying landscape design in Brazil, England and the United States, Azevedo founded Unlimited Earth Care, Inc. in Bridgehampton in 1993 — the launch pad of his sustainable landscapes.
“For over two decades, Azevedo’s award-winning, curated, and holistic approach to landscape design has been recognized nationally and internationally in both architectural and landscaping publications,” the release said.
He is a member of the Association of Professional Landscape Designers, the American Horticultural Society, and the Horticultural Alliance of the Hamptons, and divides his time between the Hamptons, New York, Los Angeles and Miami, and travels abroad frequently.
A limited run of “Bloom” is available for $75, until the official release in September. For more information, visit unlimitedearthcare.com.
