Daily Garden: Arun’s Formal English Pool Garden

This swimming pool garden is so unlike the typical American pool installation.  I am generally no fan of pools but this garden is so chic and sophisticated.  I love the idea of the pool being paired with the formal boxwood edged herb and flower garden.  The modern lines of the swimming area and the traditional structure of the garden are in such unique contrast that I find this completely appealing.

And its restful….most pools look like zones for hyperactive kid splashing fun – not something I associate with peace, but this one seems like a place where parents and kids can both enjoy themselves.

This was built by Arun Landscapes and designed by McKelvey Wise.

    I love the look of formal gardens. Unfortunately they seem to need more space to really get that formal look. Very nice pictures, thanks so much for sharing.
