More than any other garden style, a country garden design has a strong sense of belonging to its natural setting. As a result when designing a country garden it is important to consider the surroundings, wherever possible incorporating these as an extension of the garden. Borrowed views and external features can add both interest and character and provide a sense of continuity.
This can be achieved by either creating gaps in hedges, using open fences or low walls at the garden boundaries.
Most importantly the best country gardens are designed to be in harmony with nature as well as with their surroundings.
