Informal Garden

Informal Garden

Informal Gardens are more popular. They follow the natural terrain by using curved lines.

The human eye follows curves easier than straight lines. In fact, curves are more natural. There are no perfectly straight lines of great length in nature. The only illusion of a straight line is the horizon. All perfectly straight lines are man made. Balance is created not through symmetry (as in a formal garden) but with plant material characteristics such as plant shape, color, size, and texture
