Bromley Landscape Design Creates European Inspired Garden

Bromley Landscape Design created a European inspired garden with a layered look that embodies the classical history of garden design.

Just 80 miles east of Manhattan in the historic village of Southampton, New York, lies a classical landscape design inspired by European gardens designed by Bromley Landscape Design.

This elegant landscape “sought to curate a garden with a layered and enduring feel that embodied both the classical history of garden design as well as the agrarian past of eastern Long Island.”

The design philosophy and the symmetry of the garden is formed through axial planning – with one centerline that runs through the pool and organizes the entire space. 

Axial planning is a concept in urban design and architecture that focuses on the arrangement of structures or spaces along significant lines or axes. This approach is used to create a strong visual impact, enhance navigability, and organize a space coherently.

Anchored on one side of the pool is a “strategically placed custom built trellis that creates two distinct spaces”.

While one side of the trellis hosts the pool and outdoor seating, the mirrored side is arranged with formal plantings that help establish proportion and scale. 

“The goal of the backyard and outdoor space was to compliment the pool with a dramatic moment while adding a sense of dimension and interest”.

On all of their projects, Matthew concentrates on major “moments” in the landscape but makes sure to capitalize on even the smallest niches within the garden. 

Whether it be the project as a whole or within specific spaces, Bromley always utilizes seven principles of design to achieve a natural and well considered landscape: space, line, form, light, color, texture and pattern.

To help give his design an even more curated feel, Brittany Bromley Interiors accessorized the outdoor space, selecting timeless furniture and ornate garden elements like sculpture, urns, picture frames and assorted French objects.
