The project is centred around rejuvenating and cultivating a 4 ha apple orchard. In addition, its open spaces will each have their own distinctive vegetation: red-tinted plants in the East Yard, white and silver flowers on the Central Boulevard, and yellow and amber shrubs in the West Yard.
The inner space of the estate features a park with plants representing each of the four seasons.
The area will be planted with lime trees, lilacs and ornamental shrubs and further decorated with flower beds, creating a floral arrangement within the estate.
