The garden of Pop Vriend Seeds has a strong color pallet
Pop Vriend Seeds
Pop Vriend Seeds has been located on the Middenweg in Andijk for decades when recently, they constructed a new building with offices and laboratories. The site was also renovated. Now, the company welcomes its local employees, customers, and worldwide distributors with exuberant flowering fields.
The company garden creates a smooth transition from the village to the countryside. The front yard, situated along the Middenweg, fits the sequence of the neighboring front yards. Simultaneously, it offers a surprising view of the main office, which is slightly set back. Here, the gardens continue. As one ventures further into the site, the gardens merge with the rhythm of the surrounding countryside. The garden is rich with flowering plant species that color the site throughout the season. The richness of plant species reflects the richness of seeds that are handled in the depots and the laboratories. A tarmac road cuts through the flowering fields from the entrance to the loading dock at the far end of the site. Eye catching yellow markings guide visitors and seeds to their destination.
The new office stands slightly elevated above the garden. Red steel steps lead the visitor inside to an expansive viewpoint of the gardens. In the secluded courtyard, the planting manifests itself differently than in the open surroundings. Five Ailanthus trees create a roof over the courtyard, and due to their unique shapes, they all have their own character. The site of Pop Vriend Seeds has a strong color palette with red Ailanthus and steel, different shades of bronze, orange and ochre in the planting and yellow markings on the road. It is a remarkable, coherent garden, with respect for its surroundings and a link to the business
