Formal shapes in a garden could be seen as over controlling and a style and inclination of another age, but love them or hate them,they can be breathtaking. Also as nature tries to burst out of its tight geometric ‘bodice’, a strong, interesting tension can be generated in a garden especially when it is in contrast to more wild, relaxed planting.

About the Author:

In 2006 I formed Glorious Gardens, gathering together skilled practitioners to offer not just design but implementation of these designs and maintenance packages where we could look after the gardens once we had created them. Throughout my career I have designed gardens to inspire people with the heart aching beauty of nature, with shapes, colours, moods and proportions to pleasure the body and calm and delight the mind. I am also an artist who works with colour and abstract shapes and I bring this sensitivity to the 4 dimensions of a garden. I am very good at listening to clients and I’m able to draw out the essence of what a client wants for their outdoor space.
