About Us - Dionaea

About us

Our activity includes design and construction of residential, public, business and private gardens and parks.
The company’s strength lies in seasoned yet still enthusiastic landscape architects, combining their professional skills and experience with those of a resourceful and hard-working team on the ground.

DIONAEA-VRTOVI was established in 1996.

Our goal in every project we undertake is to make it functional, innovative and creative. By listening to our clients, together we create solutions to satisfy their wishes and needs, as well as improve the quality of their lives. Project complexity provides an additional impetus and motivation for us, while respect for landscape architecture standards serves as our main guiding light.

As professionals, we also carry a certain social responsibility to serve as unbiased mediators between modernized living on one hand and preservations of natural and cultural values on the other.

Zrinka Maranić MLA

Since her first day in our team, she’s coming up with creative solutions for projects and likes to see them through from the first line drawn on paper to the last blade of lawn planted on site. She dedicates herself to every new project challenge with meticulousness, attention and innovative ideas.

Lucia Marušić MLA

With equally great enthusiasm she will create realistic 3D renders of our projects and then pull out every weed that doesn’t fit in with them after the garden is completed. She imaginatively plays with shapes, colors and plant combinations to create playful and dynamic landscape solutions.
