Traditional Garden Styles
Traditional garden styles are perfect for homeowners who like a sense of order and a formal landscape. Traditional gardens tend to have a symmetrical layout with well-defined areas. A dining terrace is a must for entertaining guests created from brick or clay pavers. Adding a water feature with a fountain can become a focal point or classic statues illuminated in the evening. Maintaining a pristine lawn is a priority for a traditional garden, as are manicured perimeter hedges. Grow abundant flower borders for colour and use urns for planters on the terrace. Much of your time will be spent clipping your topiary into interesting shapes and keeping your lawn immaculate. The in-house design team at Acacia Gardens has created a list of ten traditional garden features you may wish to include.
