Garden with cottage design is a casual, colorful, easy, beautiful and cheerful celebration of flowers and herbs. Most cottage gardens are in an enclosed area like a backyard or even a front yard. Arbors draped with fragrant roses or clematis direct your eye to a pathway with low growing flowers reaching out, brushing your ankles as you stroll by. A bench appears ahead, partially hidden amongst tall flowers, providing a reclusive location for relaxing cup of tea. Try your hand at cottage garden design by starting with small vignettes. In short, the overall feel of a garden with cottage design is casual rather than formal, with a variety of plantings of all shapes and colors, interspersed with interesting ‘eye-catchers’ and shaded seating areas.
