Think about the lines in your garden. It is one most important and useful of all design elements. Everything in any garden involves lines.
Look outside and consider a trunk of a tree, the distant horizon, the line created when a garden bed ends and moves to lawn. The footpath, driveway, fence are all lines that make up your landscape. As you start to plan and design your garden, always consider the line that is created by whatever you are adding.
Lines in your garden can be straight or curved, horizontal or vertical. Each play a part in creating a unique design and will draw the eye of people admiring your space.
Straight lines give you a formal line that creates order. Curves create interest and features such as garden bed or wall features. Be aware of the lines that lead your eye and the journey it takes you on. There is nothing more pleasing then a blend of lines that create interest and creates the need to explore.
