Garden Shape Design
Dull-shaped gardens can appear boring. For instance, a garden that is dominated by nothing but lawn can look bleak, empty, and uninteresting. However, you can transform it into something more exciting simply by adding curves and reducing lawn areas. Liven it up by adding plants and other garden features that mimic your individual personality. Anchor the garden with a variety of small trees and shrubs. Perhaps the garden consists of nothing more than a narrow strip along the front or side of the home. Reshape these beds and borders. Pull them away from the house and add graceful curves to soften the edges. Twists and turns in the garden can add excitement and a sense of mystery by enticing others to peek around corners just to see what’s there. Curved garden shapes also look more natural and are much more pleasing to the eye than sharp edges and straight lines.
