Formal vs. Rustique: Spotting the Difference

I delight in this perfect, imperceptible, detail. See the difference between Formal vs. Rustique ?
. Of course it made my Pinterest Board, Outdoor Living & Exterior Design. . Spot the 'le jardin rustique' element? . Though a formal landscape design, above, a skilled gardener contrasted with much needed le jardin rustique in this tiny space. . Contrast is a top Landscape Design 'rule'. . In this garden, lapping gravel to the tree trunks is a major landscape design choice. . And, the right choice. . What was the 'formal' choice? Boxing the tree trunks with cobblestones. . Garden & Be Well, XO Tara . For a beautiful garden & home filling you with joy, become my client, local/on-line. . Award winning speaker, hire me for your group, local/out-of-state. . Books by Tara Dillard, Amazon . Tara Dillard & Associates Design: farm to city pied-a-terre. . Construction by Award Winning Shaefer Heard Construction, licensed home-builder, renovation - new construction. Heard's Landscaping a unit of SHC. 3 decades of service. . NOTE to my gardening friends... look for changes to come. Knew before computers/cell phones, sitting in Atlanta traffic on way to a client, 'I must reach a larger audience with the same amount of effort.' Soon after that epiphany I signed my CBS-TV, and, books contracts on the same day. . Then I read an article in the NYTimes about something called 'blogging'. Saved the article for a year before reading it. Studied all the blogs they mentioned, hired a computer expert they quoted, and attended a blogging seminar. . Blogging 2.0 has arrived, my knowledge is 1.0. A believer in copying the best historic gardens across the globe it flows into every arena of life. Watching Maria Killam grow her career/blog/life over the past 3 years made its impact. Signed up for a year's course with her blogging expert, Jon Morrow. . Changes will be slow, plodding is my adored method. Pulling triggers here/there is spice in the mix.
What do YOU want? . Nothing is too small, too big, or too ego crushing to mention. . Passion lies in sharing what has filled me to the depths of grace, joy & atonement, the best landscapes created over the last 2,000 years.
Just so you know...

I welcome your input. Garden & Be Well, XO Tara
