Guillaume Gosse de Gorre
Landscape architect Guillaume Gosse de Gorre joined the Draw Me A Garden adventure to make the landscaped garden accessible to all and reconnect with nature. Motivated by the idea of reintroducing biodiversity into urban areas that are depleted of fauna and flora, Guillaume selects quality plants for Draw Me A Garden, adapted to the different terrains and designed to live in interaction with each other, to create a symbiosis throughout the seasons. He therefore designs gardens that are aesthetic, affordable and easy to set up, even when you don’t have a special green thumb.
Guillaume Gosse de Gorre trained at the prestigious Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Paysage de Versailles, whose setting is the King’s Kitchen Garden at the foot of the Château de Versailles. In 2007, he took over the management of the Jardins de Séricourt, created by his father, then nurseryman/landscape gardener and passionate about botany. This park of more than 4 hectares, recognized as one of the most beautiful gardens in France, is labelled "Remarkable Garden" by the Ministry of Culture and is elected "Garden of the Year 2012" by the garden’s journalists.
It is from the Jardins de Séricourt that Guillaume designs the structure of the Draw Me A Garden gardens and chooses the appropriate plants, to allow you to have the most beautiful garden you can imagine in your home.
Located between Le Touquet and Arras in the south of Pas-de-Calais and created on more than 4 hectares, the Gardens of Séricourt were created in 1983 by Guillaume’s father, Yves Gosse de Gorre, then nurseryman and landscape gardener.
Labelled "Remarkable Garden" in 2004, when the label was created, and elected "Garden of the Year" in 2012, the Gardens of Séricourt promise visitors a walk beyond the imagination and awaken their love of nature.
It is on a site strongly marked by the history of battles (100 Years’ War and the Great War) that the Gardens of Séricourt come to life, which gives them a very special soul. They are real places of discovery with themes and universes various: the rose cathedral, the sea lane, the warrior garden and the topiary garden...
A well of biodiversity and artistic creation, the Gardens of Séricourt are a set of poetic gardens that serve as idea laboratories, both botanical and aesthetic.
