    Period Designs

    Certain architectural styles call for different landscape styles. Period design refers specifically to historic styles that have existed as design precepts or architectural styles have evolved. In colonial times. for example when foundations were primarily native stone as opposed to cement there was less of a need for today’s standards for “foundation plantings”. In Victorian times, there were more hedged gardens and tendencies towards strong axial designs.
