formal garden design and ideas

FORMAL GARDENS

Formal Gardens are a centuries-old concept of shaping hedges into crisp lines and patterns to create breathtaking, intricate designs. They are typically a defined space with paths radiating out from a central focal point, like a fountain or sculpture. They can have traditional, renaissance-type designs or they may be very modern. Both styles use the same principles of clean lines and patterns, so they blend well together.

KNOT GARDENS

Knot Gardens Knot gardens are versatile, and they work well in many garden styles. They are a classic choice for Cottage Gardens, forming a structured border around casually abundant mixes of flowers and herbs, as well as flowering trees and shrubs. They are equally traditional in a Formal Garden, with intricate designs that can mimic those of Versailles. Formal Knot Gardens complement stately trees, topiaries, and sophisticated flowers and shrubs, as well as fountains, sculptures, or other hardscaping elements.

Tall hedges are often used in creative ways in modern landscaping, like by clipping into arches or other interesting hedge sculptures. The modern style is suitable for both very large and very small spaces.

SUBURBAN GARDENS

Suburban Gardens have many different uses for hedges. Privacy is essential, and hedges are the most beautiful way to achieve that while also buffering noise and wind. Hedges are also an effortless way to add curb-appeal. They can be used thoughtfully to make a small space more useful and seem larger by creating garden “rooms” around plantings and lawn spaces. Hedges are also an excellent way to highlight flowers and other plants in the landscape. Driveways and patios are given instant peace, beauty, and privacy when lined with hedges.

URBAN GARDENS

Urban Gardens present special challenges, as they require all plants used in the limited space to be multifunctional and versatile. Plants that thrive in containers are important, and tolerance of pollution and foot traffic are huge bonuses. Hedges provide privacy without taking up much space, and are a valuable addition to any urban landscape, including courtyards, balconies, and green roofs. They do well in planters and make beautiful borders around urban vegetable and herb gardens.
