Some principles of contemporary garden design:

In contemporary garden design  less is definitely more . Whilst a contemporary garden design doesn’t have to be minimal, any clutter in the garden space would detract from the overall garden design statement. If you’re going to use a garden ornament let it be one large, enourmous statement piece such as this wooden horse. 

A strong sense of geometry
It doesn’t have to be a rectilinear approach nor circles but a ‘constructivist’ structure is what makes any design contemporary. 
Contemporary planting schemes can be best identified by few elements:
This means planting a few choice plant varieties. Not as many as we would plant in a cottage style garden. 
We like to use dramatic statement plants and trees. These are usually usually plants with fabulous architectural structure, strong foliage or great texture and bold colour.
Few Materials
Using less materials works best in contemporary garden design. Natural materials can always be used, however we have also been known to use plastic, concrete and a whole range of other synthetic products that produce outstanding contemporary garden effects.
A contemporary garden design should be an extension of your home, and with busy modern schedules, the ambience at night in your garden is as important as during the day. When designing a contemporary garden it is important for us to know what you will be using your garden space for during the day and on an evening. This will help us to help you zone your garden and create a beautiful contemporary garden design that not only looks  great, modern and sleek but is also fully functional. All in all a good contemporary garden design, well designed and executed will instil a sense of order, but more importantly a feeling of underlying harmony in your garden space. Your garden  will become a place where you can relax and unwind and where you will want to spend your down time with your family and friends.
