Informal Garden Design

The informal garden design is full of shapes that are flowing and organic, and has no symmetry, nor any main axis. Instead the garden can add an air of intrigue with constantly changing views which are revealed as a visitor passes through. Since the informal design is at odds with the formality of garden boundaries it is important that the design uses lush and extravagant planting to conceal these borders.

Soft curves and mixed borders which lightly spill over paths can be incorporated into the informal garden design to add to the sense of informality thereby creating an area which is both pleasing on the eye as well calming thereby providing the perfect place to unwind.
