Contemporary Garden Style
Contemporary or modern gardens have sleek designs, straight lines and great planning. Ideal for busy lifestyles where you want to enjoy relaxing in your garden rather than working in the garden.
The contemporary style garden has become very popular in the UK in the last 10 years. This is partly due to the increase of modern housing with small gardens as well as the cultural shift towards contemporary design.
This style of garden can be defined by the use ‘clean’ design lines, with focus on hard landscaping materials: stone, hardwood, rendered walls. Planting style is bold but simple with the use of drifts of one or two plants that repeat throughout the design. Grasses are a very popular choice for this style of design.
Lighting effects also play an integral role in the modern garden. Subtle lighting effects can be achieved with the use of carefully placed low voltage LED lights incorporated into paving and walls. (Source: Wikipedia)
