The Dresden-based start-up company GARDOMAT offers something rather innovative: professional, uncomplicated, inexpensive, creative and individual garden planning over the internet. Since 2011, a team of experienced landscaping engineers has offered this online service to those who seek to bring their individual garden ideas to life. Founders Claudia and Peter-Paul Petzold had the idea in 2008 while studying landscape architecture in Dresden. Both noticed that an uncomplicated planning possibility of private gardens did not exist. “Many still believe that today’s landscape architects plan gardens in a too expensive and unapproachable way,” notes Claudia Petzold.
