You’ll want to spend hours reading beside the common aromatic plants so often found in the classic English landscaping design. At the time it was practical as well as aesthetically pleasing, and now, it can help add a sweet and constant fragrance to your space.

The lush design often either features stonework, in the form of outdoor tile, or graveled off areas that could easily be used to entertain. Consider adding things like creeping vines to give your yard a more rustic and authentic look. Create your own private get away by using tall shrubbery, or perhaps a wall of grape vines to accentuate the rest of you space. Your yard care will be a breeze in this rich and rustic getaway.

3. The modern garden Modern gardens are all about clean lines, richness, yet keeping things under control as to offer low lawn maintenance, for a modern lifestyle.

Moss can be used between the walkway stones to make the gray pop and add contrast to the lines.
