Show #25/2812
Two Private Charleston Gardens

Formal Gardens Are A Classic Idea


In this show we visited 2 spectacular private gardens. Both were formal in design yet both provided a relaxing feel. Dr. Johnson said that the relaxed feel was his goal in designing his gardens and that is what most feel when visiting. Formal gardens are a classic idea. In our own gardens we can achieve the same results. To do so, utilize several objectives - simplicity, limited plant palette and repetition. By doing this it's not complicated and easy to apply. There was little use of actual flower color to create interest in these gardens. Yet they were interesting gardens. These are lessons we can all apply to our gardens.
