Munich Garden

Munich Garden was built in 1986. The rectanguler sunken garden surrounded by flower beds, stone walls and conifers was designed as a Byerish style by Mr. G. Tuetsch, a landscape designer in Munich.
In 1997, he and staff from Munich City came to reset the perennials continuously flowering from spring until late autumn. The grass square upon both banks of the stream lying in the middle of the garden should not be called a lawn but a meadow because it does not have to be mown than twice a year.
