A beautiful landscape that invites you to take a walk.
I like the curved structures in the midst of this very classic and stringent design.
In addition I like the very subtle use of certain elements such as red tones that were used very sporadically and paths that are only indicated so that it is up to the viewer to find the way.
Planting and reflections are very successful.
The structure is very central I'm not sure if a slight shift would have been better and I'm not criticizing it here.
The photo looks very grainy but that's not too bad either.
This is definitely one of my very favorites in this category - Congratulations!

Very vigorous and well-maintained Brazilian style layout.
Very dynamic layout with excellent hardscape work and extremely healthy plants.
Probably the pruning was very close to the date of the photo and unfortunately the bushes were not able to reach their fullness but nothing that devalues the final work.
What seems to me a great pity is that the author has hidden the hardscape too much. Using one or another bush on top of one rock is pleasant but covering all the rocks evenly in an equal way is unnecessary and unnatural.
Pay special attention to the very straight frontal plane aligned and with little dynamism. It becomes monotonous and takes away all the grandeur and dynamism of the rest of the layout which by the way is very good.
Next time try to work better on the reflections on the side windows too they help a lot to increase the amplitude of your layout ok?
Congratulations excellent job!

I find a very balanced and elegant Brasilian style scape. Nothing wrong with it. Maybe I would like to find a bigger main point to give more impact to the scene. In any case a brilliant work that deserve high ratings.

Good strong rock work. I think you could have benefitted from some groups of slightly larger-leaved plants of a darker green or perhaps a bronzy tone to break up areas that read as a very fuzzy solid green look through much of the planted area because of the uniform small leafed green plants.
— Karen Randall
This is a layout with flow. A Brazilian style care in the best way it’s exciting when there’s quality in the plants and hardscape development. This kind of tank shows us and teaches us techniques well practiced.

Amazing job!
