Gardens by Style

Do you find yourself drawn to the relaxed, lush plantings of cottage-style gardens? Or are the clean lines of contemporary garden creations more your style? Perhaps traditional and timeless gardens best suit you and your home. There's a garden plan to match your style; take your pick with our garden plan collections. Start with clean and classic formal collections that stick to symmetrical arrangements of long-beloved plants. Nostalgia is certainly part of the charm of cottage-style gardens; you can choose from garden plans inspired by English garden looks or those that are more country-influenced in their plant selections and designs. Many of today's gardens draw their inspiration from the past; if that's a key influence for you, we have several garden plans to choose from, including ones for garden spaces filled with heirloom plants and living-legacy spaces filled with old-fashioned flowers. Difficult garden spaces are often ignored, but there's no reason to skip them. Take inspiration from a side-street plan or a geometric pocket garden that integrates evergreens, perennials, and annuals.
