English Style Landscaping Ideas
English tudor style landscaping is a popular influence on Oklahoma landscaping. At Red Valley Landscape and Construction, we are extremely well skilled in designing lavish, English tudor style outdoor living space.
Tudor architectural and gardening style in England became prominent in the late fifteenth century while King Henry VIII ruled. Some of the design and landscaping features found in these types of English homes back then included knot gardens, fountains, small ponds and balanced lines for outlining, which provided a sense of privacy. Fortunately, Red Valley Landscape’s design consultants can create the same look for you today!
To build a knot garden, you first need to choose a design. You can find design ideas on Pinterest, tapestries or in nature. Bring the design to us and we’ll draft up the design plan tailored for your outdoor living space and overall design idea. We have a wide selection of plants to choose from, which leads to the next step.
You can choose any of our evergreen plants or shrubbery for us to plant in the outer symmetrical beds that will surround the knot design. We suggest Boxwood, Dwarf Yaupon Holly or Rosemary. These plants are the ones that are most easily formed into designs while staying green all year. In the inside of the knot garden, flowers that sharply contrast with dark green look the best. Some flowers we suggest to achieve this look include Gardenias, Shasta Daisies and Candytuft.
Next, you need a water fountain or some sort of statue either between multiple knot gardens or just in the middle of one knot garden. Water features add an extra boost of sophistication and English style. Red Valley Landscape offers many types of water features to add to your customized, Oklahoma landscape design.
Lastly, it’s all about consistency to achieve the perfect knot garden design. We will keep all the lines we draw with shrubbery or flowers symmetrical and stunning, as we maintain adjacency with nearby flowerbeds or garden spaces. If you want multiple gardens, we will repeat similar designs and color schemes to ensure a formal look throughout the space.
