Features of Quality Landscape Gardening
A typical landscape garden has a range of different patterns, styles and textures. Each and every garden that is completed by a professional landscape gardening company is unique and is bespoke to the look and feel of the house and the characteristics the owner of the home wishes to develop. The natural world out there creates many spectacles and there are many features that can be used within a newly designed garden that can add to its effect on the viewer. Each and every innovative design made by a gardener helps to bring character and a consistent running theme to a garden.
Characteristics of many stylish gardens out there include
• Benches and outdoor seating areas.
• Brickwork and outbuildings
• Natural stone paving or sometimes limestone
• Use of lighting.
• Water features and ornaments.
• Fencing and garden edging.
Size is no issue for Gardeners
Whether your garden is small or large, it is practical to implement a new design regardless. Designers have developed over the years to work on landscape gardening projects both residentially and commercially.
Choosing the Best of British Landscaping
Most people love to remain nostalgic to their roots even in modern times. Often gardeners are asked to use older styles to create a garden with a vintage style but with a fresher design sense. They often like to include a variety of different traditional English Garden Features such as:
• Ponds – Ponds have always remained popular and contrary to the British Landscape. When the idea was first developed to build man-made ponds in gardens residentially it excited many people and it still does today. The flow of the water makes a seamless glow, and the lapping sound helps you to relax and unwind whilst you enjoy sitting in your garden.
• Topography and Rolling Lawns – Topographists sometimes double up as gardeners as their skills are intertwined, they can create shapes out of most bushes and greenery and often this allows for a more art Deco style approach to a garden. Whilst rolling lawns create swirling irregular patters that are moulded into the landscape of your garden.
• Groves – Separate large areas of grass by planting lots of trees in a combined area with a small path down the middle. This allows for a shady walk through this section of the garden.
• Sculptures and artwork – Typically found in most upper class gardens, sculptures are mainly used as a centre piece to a garden.
• Hahas and Grottos – A Haha in traditional English was a small ditch or hideout where the rolling landscape of the garden would allow you to simply sit and relax somewhere where you were not observable from the home. Grottos were commonly thought of as romantic hideouts, however they are more like small cave like structures for nature to inhabit and they add to the style of a traditional garden.
