Formal Gardens

Classical garden design to complement the architecture of your home.

interpreting the elegance

Formal gardens use symmetry and balance to create dramatic vistas with planting, sculpture and landscaping drawing the eye and complimenting the architecture of your home.

Classic features could include a terrace with stone balustrades, sweeping stairways, statues, fountains, a formal pool or even a pavilion. Yew hedges, topiary, lawns and traditional planting complete the scene.

Our experienced team are backed up with the latest technology to enable us to create precision designs for your formal garden. Be inspired by classic styles including ‘Grand Classic’ as seen at Rensham in Oxfordshire, neat and tidy ‘Urban Formal’ layouts, ‘New England Formal’ where planting is strictly contained and ‘Sculptural Formal’ designs with clipped hedges, large topiary shapes and a central feature such as a traditional armillary sphere or modern sculptural piece.
