Hi everyone! How are you?
My name is Heidi Hannus and I am a landscape designer from Finland.
I have had my small designing company in Finland since 2002 and before that, over 10 year’s experience about this same business, so together it means over thousand different kind of design projects. Mostly they are for private gardens but also something else.
You can find some of my projects here from my website under Portfolio site or Instagram, which I keep in English language. My Facebook, Twitter and other internet sites are in Finnish for now.
This year (2018) I am designing a project to Moscow’s International Flower Jam festival. It is a competition, but same time, it is a
Show garden festival. My project will be build some of the main streets of Moscow in August 2018! My project name is DANCE OF POLYGONS. I am also one of the international speakers in Moscow Landscape Architecture seminar in September, telling people about the Finnish school territories. I am also designing my big garden project to Poznan, Poland, and travelling around the Europe and writing a stories about private gardens. One of biggest challenges is my book about Polish gardens and because of that, I will be travelling in Poland and searching beautiful private gardens for the book. With a help of this book, I am teaching Polish people how to design their
gardens with house architecture view. And of course, my main job is designing gardens in Finland.
If you would like to invite me to your country to design some garden, introduce me something great from your country or write a story about differents and similar things between designing dreams and work in your and my countries – let’s find out the way how we can do that. I would mostly like to write about private gardens. How about you?
And if you want to come to Finland and see some of Finnish private gardens, I will gladly introduce you some. For example, in the end of June and August 2018, I will be introducing gardens to Russian designers, teachers and students for few days time. 🙂
I am also very much interested in architecture and I always consider buildings and details in my designs, so I can make the garden look comprehensively planned.
If you want my help with my designs and you are not able to invite be to your country because of travelling cost, I can help you via Internet also. I have designed many gardens without even seeing them on a spot and still customers have been very satisfied to my work. How would you like me to help you?
You can ask about my work prices by email. heidi.hannus(at)villagarden.fi
You can also find me from the book called New Nordic Garden – Scandinavian Landscape Design which is now published! The book tells about what does our Scandinavian
garden style looks like in a help of designers from five Nordic countries. Norway, Denmark, Island, Sweden and Finland. I am happy to be a one of those designers in a book and show to readers what this one amazingly wonderful private garden of my customer looks like. The book contains fascinating photos and intriguing texts which are divided by atmospheres to form an interesting entirety. It gives pretty good ideas for anyone who is interested in our style of garden design. I know I would buy this book for myself also ?
You can find this book from bookstores in Europe/U.K. in beginning of March 2017 and worldwide in April. It’s written by English. http://www.thamesandhudsonusa.
