Do you fancy a formal garden? Make sure you choose design elements based on structure rather than ornamentation alone. The features and accents you pick for your garden should have clean lines, a sleek form, and simple yet classy details. You need trimmed hedges or angular garden beds, smooth and straight fences, rectilinear decking, and minimalist furniture.
Another way to highlight the formality of the space is to use a classical or symmetrical layout. You could have parallel lines of similar shrubs that are marked by identical statues or fountains at opposite ends. You could highlight paths with lighting or a neat row of perennial plants. Make sure the whole look is balanced and complementary to your home to create harmony that’s quite pleasing to the eyes.
