Gardens with Fleur offers a design style which reflects the elegance and beauty of blended formal and cottage gardens. This style transcends the traditional approach to achieve a contemporary interpretation that complements modern lifestyles.
Influenced by her love for timeless, tranquil and productive outdoor experiences, Fleur’s design style typically features symmetry, natural materials (water, stone and timber) and soft palettes of flowers and foliage for year-round interest.
Fleur’s designs seek to create a garden journey. This includes considerations of focal points, destinations, prospect, refuge and mystery.
