The main characteristic of the contemporary garden is simplicity and strength of line. These gardens are often geometric in their design and always uncluttered; the space is highly controlled. The plants are selected for their bold form, leaf and texture rather than the flower, and make strong architectural statements. This style can be applied to large gardens as much as to small courtyard spaces.
Do you just you love bold, strong visual statements? Do the clean-cut lines of contemporary, modern, minimalistic buildings and spaces really 'press your buttons?' Then a visually sharp, simplistic, contemporary garden will be just the one for you.
