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 you pass through. Since the informal design is at odds with the structured form 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 to disguise the edges . This creates an area which is both pleasing on the eye as well calming, and providing the perfect place to unwind.
