The London Olympics inspired many Canadians to celebrate London’s culture across the pond. At Ananda Landscapes, we were inspired to imagine the design of a traditional English country garden.

Typically an English country garden contains formal flowerbeds separated by pathways. These pathways can be dirt, gravel or stone. There is also usually a pond, fountain or other large water feature as a central focal point in the garden.

We can create a replica of an English garden, or these ideas into a more informal backyard setting. A mixture of annuals, perennials and bulbs can be planted in a display around a fountain or sundial. Many English country gardens have outdoor accessories that set a whimsical tone for the garden. Soft lighting will make evenings in your garden feel enchanted.

Walking through your garden will transport you back to Eighteenth-century England. The elegant atmosphere is perfect for a quiet relaxing evening, or a weekend brunch (or high tea) with friends.

Have you been inspired by any recent events lately? No matter what inspires you, Ananda Landscapes can take your dream to the next level. We work with you to create a landscape design that fits your family’s style and lifestyle!
