Designing a Landscape that Compliments the Stlye of your Home by Torrey Pines Landscape Company

Although nothing is set in stone, a successful landscape design, including both soft and hardscape elements, will be aesthetically compatible with the style of your home. Here are some loose historical guidelines for several architectural styles:

Italianate and French - formal and/or bilateral symmetry

Tudor, Cottage or Bungalow - some symmetry, but less formal

Modern - crisp, clean geometric shapes and/or lines

These are merely historical suggestions from which you may start...there are endless hybrids and adaptations.
Remember that a truly successful garden design is not only aesthetically pleasing but also satisfies the needs of those using it.
