Contemporary gardens are becoming increasingly popular with their minimalistic approach to design. Simplicity, style and low maintenance is the order of the day with this garden design, making it easy to create and even easier to look after. A Contemporary Garden is very much an extension of your home and is usually made up of raised beds, geometric shapes, wooden decking and seating areas that ooze sophistication. Concentrate on creating clean lines using stone, wood and metal and keep your planting to a minimum for a chic and uncluttered look.

A contemporary design works particularly well in small, urban spaces but also makes the ideal hub for entertaining if you’re lucky enough to have a bigger garden.
