Frequently Asked Questions
About Cottage Garden Styles and Design

A cottage or English country garden is an informal, relaxed, welcoming style that harks back to bygone times. With pretty planting, natural materials in warm tones and comfortable seating, it’s a garden for relaxation and pottering around, attending to your plants or vegetable patch.

Period properties such as Victorian or Edwardian houses and cottages.

Choose natural materials such as clay brick pavers, rustic wood decking and hazel fencing. Warm tones and a distressed appearance will look appealing.

A pretty colour palette of whites and pinks or purple with blue are options. Either select a few colours for a cohesive appearance or mix different colours for maximum impact.

Plenty of pretty flowers, such as daffodils, daisies and foxgloves. Select plants and flowers with a lovely aroma like lavender and rose bushes.
