Definition of formal garden

Categorized under "General"

Definition as written by talinum:

A landscape laid out in mainly straight lines. It also may have intricate bed designs. Example: old-timey European palace gardens.

Definition as written by Terry:

Formal gardens tend to rely heavily on symmetrical plantings (each side of the garden is a mirror image of itself if viewed from the middle) and highly stylized plant forms such as topiaries and clipped hedges to form edgings and garden rooms
