The Garden and Lifestyle Exhibition - GiardinaZÜRICH

From 2 to 6 April 2008, Zurich Exhibition Centre hosts GiardinaZÜRICH, the garden and lifestyle exhibition with the latest trends in gardens for outdoor living. Visitors will be able to marvel at innovative garden environments, terrace designs and scenarios for living. The trend for "inside-out" living has a big influence on modern garden concepts. The vast choice of stylish garden furniture, the Floristry Workshop, Plant Market and the wealth of useful accessories will delight every gardener's heart. GiardinaZÜRICH offers an elegant mix of high-quality garden show and dazzling experiences.

All those who love garden design will be able to feast their eyes on unique garden layouts at GiardinaZÜRICH from 2 to 6 April 2008. For the second time now, this garden and lifestyle exhibition is taking up all seven halls of the Zurich Exhibition Centre.

The GiardinaSTYLE sector comprises 28 individual lifestyle-based presentations by landscape and garden architects. These will be set up in the exhibition halls in the form of impressive life-size special displays; harmoniously designed Show Gardens (70 to 200 m2), Gardens of Ideas (20 to 30m2) or plant displays. GiardinaZÜRICH is characterised by a particularly large proportion of exhibition area devoted to finished gardens. The garden as an outdoor living area will be showcased along with the very latest design trends in imaginatively planted flowerbeds, skilfully devised terraces and harmonious living environments.

The GiardinaMARKET sector invites visitors to indulge themselves. Nowhere else in Switzerland offers such a comprehensive selection of elegant garden furniture with so wide a choice of models and styles. Today's "inside-out" approach is reflected in garden furniture, too. Also on the bestseller list is cane furniture. In addition, there is increasing use of unorthodox materials with new collections featuring high-quality furniture made from a variety of materials.

Bunches of fresh flowers will be lovingly assembled in the Floristry Workshop and the Plant Market will encourage visitors to do their springtime planning. The broad range of products is rounded off by sun blinds and awnings, tools, useful accessories, grills and garden ovens as well as swimming pools and water features.

Topics under discussion at the daily lectures in the GiardinaFORUM include "An introduction to Ikebana, the Japanese art of flower arrangement"; "Trees and bushes and the law concerning the respective interests of neighbours" and "Garden design: theory and practice". Admission to the GiardinaFORUM is free to exhibition visitors.
