What Is Your Garden Style?

Create the garden that is best suited to your surroundings.  Here are a few tips how.....
 
Gardening in containers can be as easy or as complex as you want to make it.  The possibilities for combinations are only limited by the gardener's imagination.  Just about any plant that grows in the ground will thrive in a pot, and it's worthwhile to note that some of the more invasive plants that you normally wouldn't introduce into your yard can be grown within the confines of a container.  Let's start with looking at your environment:
 
 14590Going for formal:  As far as choices, a formal area tends to be symmetrical in form with orderly rows of containers regularly spaced in traditional or classical garden planters.  Always neat, tidy the overall look can be very effective and impressive, it usually requires a lot of maintenance.  Patterns may vary from style to style but symmentry is preferred.  You don't need a huge formal home and garden area to achieve this effect.  The styling is much more important.
 
Going for informal:  In this type of setting, the plants develop their 14591 natural shapes and are arranged more irregularly or casually.  You will find more curved lines and shapes that flow and are not rigid.  Few straight edges or geometric forms will make up the planters with a more relaxed and comfortable feel.  This type is a lot less demanding with maintenance.

Other types would be Natural, Southwestern, country or modern.  Try creating an eastern garden with an Asian flair or a Grecian garden with pedestals and flowing ivy.  When it comes to style options you can go cottage, English or colorful

Here are a few things to ponder before you begin.
How do you currently use your yard?
If you have pets or kids will the design need to be safe?
What are you favorite plants?
