Marianne Lipanovich added this to Lay of the Landscape: English-Style Gardens
Add a sense of antiquity. A classical statue, a Chinese pagoda, a tea house — all are possiblities, depending on your personal style and taste. While the statue and pagoda may be primarily decorative, a tea house or gazebo in a classical style can add extra living space to your yard.
