Featuring over 250 stunning photographs by Michael Stavaridis of Mario Nievera's diverse gardens and landscapes
As a child, Mario Nievera would fantasize about perfect, unfolding landscapes and luscious, animated gardens. Now, he creates them: Nievera Williams Design, one of the top landscape architectural firms in the country, plans and develops diverse projects for residential estates, community parks, and corporate and institutional properties, both nationally and abroad. For Mario, it is imperative that a house be closely connected to its surroundings: with every project, whether bucolic and classical, elegant and refined, or dramatic and fanciful, he endeavors to achieve a seamless integration between interior and exterior spaces.
Using a colorful palette of unique and varied vegetation, from vibrant flower beds to elegant coconut palms and rustic ivy-covered trellises to framing Ficus trees, Mario uses nature as a tool for design. Painting with plant-life in climates as diverse as tropical Floridian coasts and as temperamental as windy New York rooftops, Forever Green presents the landscape architect's innovative idylls from all of our dreams. It is sure to make you green with envy.
