Hamptons: On Trend

The Hamptons Cottage style of garden design is one of the most popular trends in landscape design today.

Hamptons Styled Gardens are very on trend, with the beautiful balance of formal and cottage elements combined with lush green plant foliage and soft flowering colours of mauve, pink and white.⁠

A Hamptons cottage garden is a beautiful and classic way to design a landscape. Box hedges are a great way to create structure and add a formal feel to the garden. To bring a sense of serenity and peacefulness to the garden, pastel colours can be used in the plantings. Cottage plants like roses, camellias, gardenias and gauras will add a classic and romantic touch to the garden. With a Hamptons cottage garden, you can create a beautiful and timeless landscape design.

Some of my favourite Hamptons style plants include:⁠

• Buxus microphylla ‘Faulkner’⁠

• Tulbaghia violacea ⁠

• Camellia sasanqua⁠

• Myoporum parvifolium⁠

• Iceberg Roses⁠

• Lagersrtoemia indica ‘Natchez’⁠

• Cuphea hyssopifolia⁠

• Agapanthus ‘Snowball”⁠

• Viburnum odoratissimum⁠

• Magnolia ‘Little Gem’, ‘Teddy Bear’⁠

• Pittosporum ‘Miss Muffet’⁠

• Gaura varieties⁠

Below are some inspiration examples of Hamptons Design Palettes that are currently in construction or you can view completed project examples in my portfolio.
