“Mosaiculture” is a magical word referring to both the accomplished art of glass mosaic and the sophisticated origins of artistic horticulture.

Mosaiculture is the most spectacular of all the horticultural techniques. Now considered an art in its own right, it consists of is the successful blend of several disciplines: sculpture, whose principles apply to its structures; painting, reflected in its palette; and horticulture, expressed through its use of the ever-changing medium of living plants. Mosaiculture also echoes the spirit of our times through its application of eco-friendly methods and techniques.
A mosaiculture garden is an enchanting space that can reflect and symbolize its host city’s culture or any other chosen theme. An educational tool for young people, it is also a resource for horticultural enthusiasts and a space to unwind for local residents in addition to being a powerful engine for tourism and economic development.
The design can incorporate existing mosaiculture works or entail the creation of original works. The layout can also be flexible enough to accommodate travelling mosaiculture exhibits.

Come winter, the highly aesthetic steel structures on which the plants are mounted can transform the summertime plants and blossoms into a winter “garden of light.” This turns the mosaiculture garden into a new seasonal attraction for the city and region.

A pioneering horticultural trend, mosaicultures can be two-dimensional, creating dazzling beds of delicate detail and striking geometric shapes, as well as three-dimensional, taking the form of spectacular sculptures.
