What does a traditional garden design usually look like?

A traditional garden design will likely have a real lawn, with flower beds full to busting with seasonal and perennial plants for colour, texture and scents. The paving will likely be older looking, maybe York stone or a riven sandstone. The traditional garden is generally more upkeep than modern layouts. Arbours with rose climbers are a great addition to a traditional garden. Quite often in traditional garden design, the aim is to transport you into the past, so we try to suggest items that remind us of another time. I am always venturing around the local reclamation yards for ornamental pieces for clients gardens.
