What is Country Style?

Country style got its start in the late 1800s, when designers who were also naturalists called attention to the organic beauty of softer, minimally restricted growth over large areas of outer property. Today, country style is associated with using combination of design techniques, plantings and elements to bring coherent shifts over areas of ample space. This style often starts with more formal approaches near the house which grow increasingly more natural and wild in further landscapes. Paths link these spaces, and lead visitors with focal points, viewing areas and resting places.
