Minimalist Gardens

Minimalist Gardens

If you want to keep your garden simple and calm, then the minimalist garden look might suit you. With clean lines, neutral colours, and neatly trimmed greenery, this contemporary style looks great in modern homes, and is perfect for those who want to create an oasis from modern life. Floral & Hardy design minimalist gardens of all sizes that are practical and beautiful, with design features that suit your lifestyle.


Understated elegance

Minimalist design is simple yet elegant, and it’s important for the design to still be interesting. That’s why you should contact the garden design experts at Floral & Hardy to create a soothing and pleasant minimalist garden. They will be able to use interesting textures and a palette of soothing neutral tones to give your garden a stylish finish.


Hard landscaping

Hard landscaping is important in minimalist gardens. Smooth, neutral materials such as slate, limestone, and marble can create interesting features such as patios and paths, while gravel or stones can replace flowerbeds and lawns for those who want a low maintenance garden.
Adding some landscaping features to your garden will stop a minimalist design becoming too monotonous, and there are lots of features you could add that would make a big impact. You could add a serene pond, a relaxing seating area, or raised gardens for greenery. Simple water features also work very well in a minimalistic garden, and add a zen atmosphere to your backyard.


Plant life

Choosing a minimalist garden design doesn’t mean you have to avoid soft landscaping features such as plants and shrubs. Neatly trimmed shrubs and a well-manicured lawn can look great in a minimalist garden, and lush greenery contrasts well with crisp white stone and neutral colours.


Shape

Because you’re using a minimal palette of colours, it’s important to get the right shape and layout of a garden to prevent it from looking bare. Floral & Hardy can work with you to get the right design, and will draw up plans to create the right minimalist look. You can then decide whether this kind of look will work with your space, and make any changes before work begins.
Whether you have a courtyard garden or a large outdoor space to work with, the minimalist look can work in all sorts of gardens. Floral & Hardy can create a garden with a few stylish and simple features, and ensure that it’s relaxing and low maintenance. Simply give us a call and we’ll be happy to discuss your creating your garden design.
