Aquarious Semi-Formal Garden DesignAquarious is a garden designed for relaxation and entertainment. Aquarious is also suited to homes and businesses near traffic as the sound of the cascading water will drown out the noise. As you enter the front garden there is a shallow pond in front of you with a heavily frosted (for safety) glass bridge. This emulates the feeling of walking on water demonstrating to your mind that anything is possible.
It is a great garden to throw a party in, as you and your guests lounge around on the patio surrounded by water, with the sound of water falling from the glass brick wall being lit up by colour changing lights. You will also be able to enjoy the fish ponds as the front of them are made of glass brick, allowing you to see the koi-fish swimming around as you sit and relax whilst enjoying a nice drink.
Clouds Angel Garden - Formal Garden DesignThis formal garden design draws the eye to the angel statuary, designed in a way to resemble clouds. The formal plantings on either side of the garden mirror identical plantings - symbolic of clouds with rounded shapes.
The pattern is important to note since vertical lines appear to have movement, and lead the eye to a specific area. The horizontal lines are static and hold the attention of the viewers within the specific area. These important design consideration create a beautifully formal garden that is also visually interactive.
Puzzling Formality - Formal Garden DesignWhen the word Formal comes into ones mind the first thing that people think about is straightness and exactness. While combining these elements I wanted to create something exciting, a way to keep the formal style whilst still having a sense of fun. Thus puzzling formality was born. The colors where splashed whilst still keeping the structure, I also added a mini maze to make it interesting.
There are a lot of circles used to create lines for the eyes to follow which also leads you to other parts of the garden. Flowing water is also used to bring out the excitement. When sitting down there are great relaxing views found in the garden as you enjoy the peace and feelings that are created by the clean cut white and then the exuberance of color that meets your eye.
Roma - Mediterranean Garden DesignThis Mediterranean garden design could be summed up in one word - simplicity, proving that a garden does not have to be complex to be stunning. Roma combines the beauty of symmetry with the power of perfection to create a breathtaking masterpiece. The planting is typical of that of a formal design. As your guests arrive they will be amazed at the beauty of simplicity. As you walk through the back garden the roman pillars greet you with their bold features. In front there is a stone statue placed beneath an arched hedge with a mirror behind it. On either side the benches await you under an arbor planted with ivy, before them stand large concrete pots with trees in them gently inviting you in.
