Formal Gardens

There's always a place for a little formality - how to achieve an attractive formal garden style

An attractive formal garden style can be achieved with lineal plantings of a single tree species and underplanting with mound forming perennials. Here we have planted an 'avenue' of Ficus hillii and underplanted with lavenders and echiums. A similar effect can also be achieved on a smaller scale.

Formal garden styles can also be achieved with topiary and hedging. Here we have planted Maiden Hair Vine (Muehlenbeckia complexa) on topiary frames and underplanted with Cotton Lavender (Santolina chamaecyparissus) and Cretan Thyme (Thymus longicaulis subs. chaubardii).
