A traditional landscape design for the garden incorporates a wide variety of evergreen and deciduous trees, shrubs and perennials, creating a complex and ever-changing palette of color throughout the entire growing season.
What are the best features of a traditional landscape design? For many longtime homeowners in the Main Line / Philadelphia area, traditional means stylish with a touch of both elegance and sophistication. The following are four primary features characterizing stunning traditional landscape design for Main Line homes:
1. Lush plantings – Incorporating different evergreen and deciduous trees, shrubs and perennials, both flowering and those prized exclusively for their foliage, the Main Line landscape architect creates an elegant yet engaging formal landscape design for the home garden.
Your professional landscape designer utilizes trees or shrubs in your design to bring a feeling of maturity to your new garden design even amidst the newness (or “youth”) of fresh plantings. Homeowners across the Main Line, including in communities such as Berwyn, Paoli and Radnor; enjoy the traditional landscaped garden more than any other style.

2. Detailed pathways – Just because a walkway is a necessary part of the garden does not mean it ought to be overlooked or underplayed. On the contrary, a skillfully designed path can become a true focal point of your landscape.
Whether you choose pavers surrounded by mulch or gravel, slate stepping stones or cobblestone, your pathway can be a stunning backdrop for your plantings. Billowing herbs or perennials can spill over and soften the edges and bring a charming, inviting, refreshing aura to your Berwyn, Paoli and Radnor area landscape.

4. Gates and arbors – To add an element of mystery and seclusion, gates and arbors can bring another really wonderful dimension to your traditional Berwyn, Paoli or Radnor residential landscape design. They separate different areas of the garden design and beckon garden visitors to keep walking to see what is on the “other side”.
These structures can be charming focal points, when vines are encouraged to clamber upwards and frothy, flowering shrubs and cheery annuals soften the transition from one outdoor “room” to another.
