Contemporary garden designs can reflect the particular lifestyles of their owners, and show an understanding of how hard and soft landscaping materials can be used in harmony with each other to create a space which is clean and calming. This style garden can sometimes appear to be an extension of the home, by using the same colours and textures in the garden as used within the home the two areas can appear to seamless transition from one to the other.
Form, texture and structure are commonly used within the creation of a contemporary garden design as is the geometry of the building. The use of sleek long lines, bold colours and architectural plants help to create plenty of contrasts of form adding visual dynamics to the garden. More importantly the best contemporary designed gardens can appear timeless providing years of pleasure.
