Landscape Design Styles

At present, there are four most popular landscape designs, widely spread among modern gardens.

French Landscape Style

The French landscape style is known for its rationality, sharp compositions and shapes. It is also notable for straight lines and solid geometrical figures: perfectly even garden paths, smoothly cropped bushes and trees, regular reservoir shapes. The French style is very formal and triumphal; founttains, sculpture and water cascades are commonly used in such gardens. As a rule, French style requires spacious, expansive areas. You should consider this landscape style if you prefer classic refined decorative elements and sophisticated figures. However, the French style gardens are cost-intensive and need to be constantly maintained and supported.
