I had the great pleasure to meeting the marvelous Mario Nievera some time ago, while working on the development of Marsh Island in Vero Beach Florida. It was a top-notch team comprised of Ferguson & Shamamian, architecture; Mario Nievera, landscape architecture; and yours truly, interior design. I was immediately taken by Nievera, and, over time, I’ve had the high honor to experience many of his exclusive and glorious gardens first hand.
Nievera is a true genius—a modern day Russel Page. Whether creating a modest outdoor retreat or designing on a grand scale, Nievera always manages to pluck from a client’s dreams a landscape that meets and then wildly surpasses expectation—each design is a masterpiece. It’s no surprise that the Wall Street Journal exclaimed that a garden by Nievera would increase the worth of its property by at least 10%.
I’m delighted to share with you Nievera’s first monograph, Forever Green, a substantial and well-organized work highlighting his versatility, and innovation in 250 rich photographs (by Michael Stavaridis) and informative and insightful text. You’ll no doubt be quite inspired and perhaps calling on his illustrious firm Nievera Williams Design to assist in manifesting your own visions of paradise!
