Informal and Cottage

Add romance, scent and color to your garden!

Celebrated for their abundant planting and profusion of color, cottage gardens generally enjoy a simple layout with a central narrow path of brick, stone or gravel separating rectangular beds on each side. Hedges, rose arbors and arches are often used to split the garden into various spaces enjoying different planting schemes and atmosphere. Self-seeding is favored and plants may spill across pathways, their delicate scent awakening the senses while passing by.
