The Garden Style

Living here, the obvious choice is tropical.

A lush, jungle look.

I initially wanted something like this:

But after a lot of browsing through various websites, I decided to make a list of what I liked about different garden styles:

Tropical:

  • The plants
  • Lushness

Formal

  • The planting style – lots of symmetry
  • Hedging

Contemporary

  • Minimalist
  • Modern colour schemes
  • Silhouetted specimen plants
  • Funky garden ornaments

Cottage

  • Certain plants
  • Plants tumbling over paths
  • A tiny bit of rusticity

Then I decided to combine these elements, and invent my own garden style.

I ‘m going to plant a fusion garden.
