Concepts of an Arts and Crafts Garden

An Arts and Crafts garden is a garden design, which was popular from the 1880's until the 1920's. This style incorporated the use of handcrafted décor, such as benches, pergolas, trellises, topiaries, and other pottery into the landscape. It was characterized by having long straight lined walks and enclosed garden compartments also known as outdoor rooms. Brick walls, trellises, and shrubs, hedges, terraces, and sunken gardens separated the compartmentalized gardens. The plantings were in masses and trailed along walls as well as out of cracks inn walls, over walkways. The gardens were meant to show the changes of the seasons as well as a harmony with the nature the hardscapes and plantings had together.
