London Garden Design Inspirations Concept Sketch: Horta Museum

This art nouveau garden sees typical art nouveau shapes formed in the hard landscaping and the influence of knot gardens in forming the sculptured planting. A large terrace in the centre of the space constructed from a pre-formed wave paving makes a bold statement to the garden and allows ample space for dining and relaxing. The beds either side of this terrace are filled again with typical art nouveau shapes sculpted from box hedging and filled with soft herbaceous plants and grasses.

Nestled in the corners of the terrace are two herb beds for easy access if required for cooking, these dedicated beds make a clear definition of the planting beds behind and are therefore great dedicated herb beds. The terrace leads onto a lawn which is edged in cobblestone setts to make a clear distinct shape reminiscent of the art nouveau styles. Box hedging again then acts as a boundary to the beds behind which contain much softer planting style in creams, yellows and soft oranges.
