THE SQUARE IN DESIGN
Some benefits to using squares in your garden design:
Symmetry + Balance: Squares are symmetrical shapes, and symmetry is often associated with balance and stability.
Asymmetry: Squares can also be divided asymmetrically by pulling a line off-center through the space, while the overall square will still provide that stable balance.
Modularity: Squares are modular shapes that can be repeated and combined to create simple to complex patterns.
Style: Squares have been used throughout history in various cultural and artistic contexts, contributing to a sense of tradition. At the same time, their clean lines and simplicity make them relevant in modern and minimalist design.
