Minimalist garden landscaping is all about restriction and therefore the number of hard landscaping materials, as well as colours should be limited in order to achieve a clean and simple look. Additionally it is important that the materials complement each other to create a harmonious scheme. Paving may seem the obvious choice for a minimalist garden however a variety of other materials can also be. Smooth rendered walls or glass panels can help to create clean lines and focal points within the garden.
A minimalist garden should have a strong line and clear purpose, and provide an area which is tranquil and low maintenance providing the perfect place to escape from the stresses of modern life.
