Traditional Garden

Enjoy the relaxed style of country gardens with their flower-filled beds and borders!

Created around a series of garden rooms and expanses of lawn, traditional gardens tend to be well-defined gardens. They feature abundant spring bulbs, flowering shrubs and brilliantly colored perennial borders which contrast with clipped hedges and meticulously tended lawn. They may include outdoor living elements such as a fire pit or built-in barbecue, a maze garden for children or oversized chess boards.
