Formal Garden Design

The mention of Formal Garden Design typically conjures images of manor houses, or palaces. Based on either symmetrical or asymmetrical design, the composition of a formal garden relies on geometry. The architecture of a formal garden can be achieved through the use of circles, squares, rectangles and ellipses, and added vertical objects such as hedges, cones and pyramids.

A formal garden demands a tidy, well manicured look as a result the upkeep this involves can seem daunting and overwhelming. However, with clever use of low maintenance plants and modern tools it can be achieved relatively easily.

It is important to design the layout of a formal garden before starting any construction as any rework can be timely and costly.
