Contemporary Garden Style – Garden design in the twentieth century has become both a profession and an energetic contributor to the development of modern ideas about space and form. The term ‘contemporary garden style’ rather defies definition, but it is useful for drawing together the many different strands in garden design thinking, from the Bauhaus in the 1920s to the present day. The best contemporary gardens do capture the mood of society at a particular time, and reflect the particular lifestyles of their owners.
They also show an understanding of the various components and materials used, both in hard and soft landscape terms. This makes the best gardens timeless.
Pergolas, arbors, gazebos and other small structures open to the air provide pleasant places for shelter or simply to sit in and enjoy the view of your garden. They can also provide interesting and attractive focal points in the garden.
It is important to make sure all these structures are generously proportioned but not too large or grandiose for the size and style of garden you are creating, otherwise they will be overbearing and detract from the beauty of the garden itself.

Garden rocking chairs now come in other materials besides wood, but they continue to offer a combination of two remedies for stress and weariness. The enjoyment of the outdoors, combined with the physical motion of rocking, brings a sense of peace and well-being to many people.
Artificial Effects In The Garden – The range of materials that can be used in a garden includes the old and the new. Both can be used in all kinds of ways, and they must either merge with and enhance the existing look, being dictated by the planting scheme and atmosphere, or wittily stand out, catching visitors by surprise.
The best gardens have a touch of both, using a wide range, from stone, shells and water to concrete, metal, plastic, stained glass, colored pebbles, ornamental tiles, paint, wood, artificial lighting and slide projectors. In short, anything goes, but only if it looks good.
