ARCHITECTURAL STYLE AND LANDSCAPE DESIGN

If you feel overwhelmed choosing plants and designing a garden for your own home, one place to start is to determine the architectural style of your home. From there, you can find landscape styles and plants used most often with that style. For example, Victorian homes might be found with a potager or cottage garden. Below is a listing of Architectural styles. In some instances I have linked to Pinterest, with a board full of ideas.
