Adding Drama

Engaging gardens unfold as a series of scenes in which points of interest each play a part, sometimes as the main focus, at others in a supporting role. Along the way, the spotlight shifts from one to another as the mood changes between different locations, but always there needs to be a fine balance and harmony between the various elements. At the heart lie focal points which, ranging from tiny fountains, pots, ornaments, sculpture, statuary or furniture to major structures such as gazebos and pergolas, attract interest in a particular direction. Ornaments are a very personal thing, catching the eye by virtue of size, beauty, colour, form or an element of surprise, but for maximum impact, they should be compatible with the surroundings and style.
