Vegetable and Kitchen Gardens

Vegetable & Kitchen Gardens Kitchen Garden The traditional kitchen garden, also known as a potager, is a seasonally used space separate from the rest of the residential garden – the ornamental plants and lawn areas. Most vegetable gardens are still miniature versions of old family farm plots with square or rectangular beds, but the kitchen garden is different not only in its history, but also its design. The kitchen garden may be a landscape feature that can be the central feature of an ornamental, all-season landscape, but can be little more than a humble vegetable plot. It is a source of herbs, vegetables, fruits, and flowers, but it is also a structured garden space, a design based on repetitive geometric patterns. (Image source: www.bbc.co.uk/gardening) The kitchen garden has year-round visual appeal and can incorporate permanent perennials or woody plantings around (or among) the annual plants.(Source- Wikipedia) See an example of one of our vegetable gardens on our Makeover page.

Contemporary Garden

Contemporary Garden

Contemporary Garden Style Contemporary Gardens 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.

Formal and Traditional Gardens

Formal and Traditional Gardens

Formal and Traditional Gardens Traditional or Formal Gardens A formal garden in the Western gardening tradition is  a neat and ordered garden laid out in carefully planned geometric and symmetric lines. The image is an example of a formal or traditional garden ( Image source– House to Home). Lawns and hedges in a formal garden must always be kept neatly clipped. Trees, shrubs, sub-shrubs and other foliage are carefully arranged, shaped and continually trimmed. The simplest formal garden would be a box-trimmed hedge lining or enclosing a carefully laid out flowerbed or garden bed of simple geometric shape, such as a knot garden. The most elaborate formal gardens contain pathways, statuary, fountains and beds on differing levels.
