Design Elements

with Landscape Designer Louise McDaid

Is your garden a romantic style of garden or is it a bit of a mix.Do you know what style it actually is. Or perhaps you’d like a style of some sort, perhaps a mix of French and English, and are just waiting for some inspiration?
This garden was also featured at this year’s Chelsea Flower show, but we can pick out some details for your to use in your own garden..
 Listen to this…

So many of the gardens that I saw at Chelsea this year had made a big effort to modernise the styles to fit in with today’s gardener.

They seemed to use perennial planting more creatively, and with more structure,  rather than just lumping them together, which often makes the garden look untidy at certain times in the season.
