A Formal Garden Patio And Planting Ideas

Surrounded by a perfectly placed and symmetrical planting scheme, this formal patio garden has a few intersting design points worth mentioning. I think it's also worth mentioning though, that, because of all the hedges that need trimming, this is high maintenance garden.

The choice of plants is very interesting. Besides the shapes of the hedges and plants, what else makes them interesting? Of all of these plants in this entire garden, there are only two spots of color flowers in planters. That's interesting.

Shaped hedges and evergreen plants are very important to formal gardens. How many different shades of green can you see? A lot. And with each different shade, there's also a different texture. Green is often overlooked as a color in landscape design and is more often seen as a neutral or backdrop for other plants and flowers. However, in a formal garden patio such as this one, the plants are the main factor in the design style.
