Traditional gardens are stunningly simple. They rely heavily upon geometry, with shapes such as circles, rectangles and squares used to organize the landscape. They do however possess a sincere softness from the use of flowering annuals and perennials. The backdrop for these perennials is a framework provided by evergreen shrubs and a variety of brilliant bulbs. Colour is controlled but it refrains from being completely monochromatic. Traditional gardens are notable due to the contrast created between the colour provided by the plantings and the overall refined calm surroundings.
Lively flowerbeds are contained between neatly clipped boxwood hedges that can assume a variety of shapes, from simple spheres and crisp lined hedges to fanciful topiaries. They avoid free flowing curvy borders because they often appear messy, traditional gardens have borders that reflect the formality of the garden. Hedges also appear in traditional gardens as they are used to develop garden rooms and visually encapsulate different areas of the landscape. They feature few focal points, with one or two well chosen pieces such as water features or ornamental statues that make a statement. Traditional gardens are also home to archways and pergolas. Traditional gardens are tranquil outdoor spaces that are best enjoyed on balmy evenings.
