For Erwin, the unique experience provided by the Jardins de Kerfouler is more than just a simple visit to a garden. It’s the opportunity to step into a different world, taking us on a voyage of discovery, with surprisingly different ambiences round every corner of the16 different spaces that lead us round the garden. Discoveries that invite us to share a moment around a passion we have in common - gardens and gardening. A visit to these gardens is a personal experience which everyone will enjoy in their own way. At the end of the visit, Erwin is happy to share his planting advice with you.
In constant evolution
The garden is an ongoing project in constant evolution. Just like any other life-cycle, the gardens are reborn at each new season. A simple sculpture or an artistic modification can effectively recreate a space, giving it a completely new meaning. New gardens are in the process of being prepared, which takes time. First comes the concept, then a theme is chosen and a plan is drawn up. Then the work begins, placing the first stones which define the space, starting the planting then waiting until the space is ready to be revealed to visitors.
“I find my inspiration in nature, as well as at plant nurseries and horticultural events.” Erwin is a passionate gardener and plant collector, and he takes particular care in developing the unique character of each garden. Combining nature with artworks is an artistic discipline in its own right. In 2019, he is working with ceramicist Audrey Kimmel.
