The marsgarden is a part of the park of gods and planets.

garden of mars

This garden is dominated by two massive oaktrees stretching their
gnarled boughs over paths and bedding areas.




The solid entrance and exit gates are made from planks of oak.

A wide path laid with pale red paving bricks runs on a straight line and leads to the centre of the Mars Garden.

Here, in an open gravelled area, one will find a fire pit, where a campfire will sometimes be burning. From the centre, another path leads directly to the exit.

Narrower paths lead to two smaller open areas exhibiting sculptures made of iron bars, steel wire mesh or similar.


The planted areas of the Mars Garden are covered with perennials and shrubs that are mainly thorny and produce red flowers or red fruit, such as berberis, redleaf rose (Rosa glauca), flowering quince (Chaenomeles speciosa), red shrub roses, red tulips and dahlias, astilbes, bergamot (Monarda didyma) and purple coneflower (Echinacea purpurea), as well as with red-leaved and red-barked plants, for instance smoke tree (Cotinus coggygria), red-barked dogwood (Cornus alba Sibirica), leatherleaf sedge (Carex buchananii) and tormentil (Potentilla erecta).
