Garden Design Ideas – French Style

Garden design styling can enhance any garden regardless of it’s size. Choosing the right furniture, containers or even sculpture can transform an interesting garden into a really stunning space.

I saw this circular metal seat recently on holiday in France and thought it looked beautiful. It makes the tree a real focal point in the courtyard and is a style that can easily be replicated.

Many people have small courtyard type gardens where this look would work well. With such attractive gravels and paving available now; grass is being replaced in many gardens to great effect.

The French love metal garden furniture and it’s elegant simplicity works well. It is also strong, durable and suprisingly comfortable. If you haven’t room for a table and chairs a metal bench can look just as good. Place weathered terracotta pots brimming with lavender and herbs around it and you’ll have the perfect look.
