The Stream Garden is an immersive naturalistic garden, designed by Noël van Mierlo of Van Mierlo Tuinen and landscaped by Totaaltuin Leende, and is shown here in all its glory in the first morning light using HDR.

The meandering watercourse that runs through the garden is directly connected to the River Maas and is full of life such as small fish, crayfish and mussels. The garden has an irresistible appeal to children from the neighbouring marina. They are always playing near the water and jumping over the rocks. That is exactly what was intended, because the garden is partly accessible for visitors and their kids.

The garden also has a private area by the house, where beautiful flower borders and sloping paths invite you to explore. The owners walk through the garden every day and enjoy the seasons, the birds and the ever-changing light. Every morning the sun rises on the horizon and gives you the perfect panorama to start the day with a smile.
