    MODERN
    One of the most elegant and most mysterious styles, in general, it originated in interior design. The style of modern prevailing at the beginning of the 20th century had a strong effect on culture as a whole, that it would be impossible for it not to affect the landscape design world. The line is the chief characteristic of all types of modern style. The lines of the modern style are smooth, fluid, enchanting and arched. It seems as though they overflow into themselves. Therefore, the most important thing when designing this style of garden is to isolate and emphasize them in every way possible. This is done in all parts of the landscape; paths, groups of plants as well as the arrangement of channels, fountains and ponds. Style is difficult to design since it is essential that the connection of the zones among themselves and the connection of garden with the house is perfect. A properly executed garden in this style can be described in a way similar to music.
    The modern style was always characterized by simplicity of lines. A garden arranged in this style is like an open room, which adjoins house. It is deprived of adornments and has strict outlines. A pond is usually located in the centre of the garden. White walls can be decorated with dark lattices. Simplicity is a principle of design of a garden in the modern style.  The colours of plants must be simple, without many different mixtures and nuances and must contrast with each other. Lattices of dark tones are used as the enclosures. Containers for the plants are made from concrete or in the form simple terra-cotta pots. Surfaces are usually paved by tiles in the form of geometric figures and usually only use plates of two colours - black and white. Pebbles may be added to the paving. Furniture has strict form, is deprived of adornments of every kind and is made from contemporary materials like plastic and aluminum. Gardens in the style of modern, as a rule, have formal outlines, but in this case adhere to a strict symmetry.
    The modern style, was only slightly similar to the design of the beginning of century, it was characterized by simplicity of lines and sculptural volumes. Gardens were treated as an open room which adjoins the house and was strictly deprived of any architectural adornments. The purpose of the garden corresponded to  understanding the architecture of the house as a "place for living" ; therefore places for sport like swimming pools and tennis courts are located in plain sight. Simple enclosures, strict lines and black grids of trellises on the white walls are common. Accessories are allowed, but are not plentiful; the motto of modern garden is " the less, that better".
    Strict lines of the house are combined with the architectural forms of the plants: a characteristic example of which is the large-leaved host, the pointed peaks of the gladioli and decorative grasses. Colours are clear and fresh and the components are strictly contrasting.

FUSION
Sites designed in a strictly defined style are currently very rare. As a rule, the different zones of the site are designed in different styles. This means that the entrance and ceremonial zones more frequently correspond to a strict, regular style, with the required parquets, although many other zones are designed in the irregular style. Zones for relaxation, on the other hand, for the most part correspond to the styles which are the closest to nature, i.e., to informal, forest style, Feng-Shui style or Japanese.
The mixing of formal and informal styles creates a very unique design. A similar garden, by the name Le Paradou, is described in Emil Zola's novel “Abbe Mouret's Transgression”. In the essence a garden designed in this style is arranged using the regular style, but because of the absence of care after many decades the force of nature will convert it into a neglected park with an uncontrolled growth of plants, which were originally planted. There is also a presence of many architectural and sculptural forms which are inherent in regular style. A garden of such type can be created artificially, but that is a fairly complicated task which requires a large volume of knowledge of different skills, many of which are often  not connected with landscape design and the skill of planting greenery in different areas.
KEY DESIGN ELEMENTS:
- The mixed style greatly pleases its creator
- Very frequently encountered
- It is obtained from the mixing of the different styles of landscape design
- It can be created from regular style, if it is not cared after.

URBAN

CONCEPT
It is not entirely necessary to follow traditional landscape design styles during the design and decoration of a garden. It is very interesting to independently, or with the aid of the designer, devise the style of a garden, to make it “the one and only”. But how is this done? It is simple to take the basis of any style you like and then try to express its nature through landscape design. There are many different types of gardens  that can be created: these are the rock gardens, the garden of mosses, Alpine gardens, eco-gardens, fantasy gardens, aroma gardens, roof gardens, pink gardens, etc.

MINIMALIST
What is a minimalist garden? A garden in this style is similar to an interior designed in this style - it is laconic and expressive in its simplicity. It is "the large in the small". This is possibly one of the most complex styles, mainly because it uses the minimum number of components possible to convey an very much. It is necessary to design it in such a way that that composition speaks to the people viewing it. This style can be applied to any site, because what is done is not as important as how. This style is suitable for the lovers of the laconic, restraint and contemporary style. The minimalist style contributes to the development of creative abilities. This is the style in which innovation is born!
