Dr Krishna Chavan – International landscape designer
A garden is a planned space, usually outdoor, set aside for the display, cultivation and enjoyment of plants and other forms of nature which includes tedious and messy tasks like digging, watering etc. But not any more as we can create instant gardens in just 24 hours.
Krishna Chavan a new-age landscape artist from Belagavi has made this possible. Instant gardening is a creative and innovative concept which can be created in any size for any budget says Krishna.This concept developed by him is popular in India and abroad.
Such gardens can be made to have lawn, bridge over water canal, waterfalls, pathway, pond variety of attractive plants and other beautiful aspects of nature. Although being instant gardens they sustain for long but it also requires constant monitoring. The concept is ideal for having gardens on a terrace as it absorbs rain water.
