Formal Garden Designs

What elements are found in formal garden designs?  Formal gardens have a clear and defined structure.  They tend to be symmetrical and are designed in geometric shapes like squares, triangles and straight lines.  The plants used are usually more leafy greens than flowers - boxwoods are used frequently.  Lastly, formal gardens tend to have a focal point like a fountain or birdbath.  We've found some lovely gardens for you to enjoy!
