The Elizabethan Garden - Downton Abbey Comes to Your Backyard

While waiting for Downton Abbey to come back in the fall, gardeners who are fans of the Elizabethan Garden look are in luck. With the Queen Elizabeth Collection from CobraCo, gardeners can be inspired to create their own "Downton Abbey."

    LITITZ, PA, June 01, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The popularity of the dramatic British television show, Downton Abbey, has increased the popularity of all things Elizabethan including interior decor, fashion and outdoor living spaces.

Homeowners looking to give their own backyards the feel of an Elizabethan or British garden have a number of options to choose from, starting with several collections from CobraCo.

A distinguishing factor of an English garden is the organization of plantings. An Elizabethan garden often has structured pathways featuring careful groupings of plantings in a traditional manner and they tend to be very symmetrical. Anything done on one side of the pathway or yard is usually mirrored on the opposite side. Hedgerows are also popular along the edges of flower beds to strictly define the space.

CobraCo offers a Queen Elizabeth collection of hanging baskets, including a parasol style and a more traditional, round hanging basket. Made of rust-resistant black metal, the Queen Elizabeth style planters can be purchased as hanging baskets, stake planters, floor planters and basket stands. To create a Downton Abbey inspired look, gardeners can use an assortment of planters to create pops of color at different heights throughout the backyard space.

CobraCo is part of the Avant Garden Decor family of brands, which is the premier brand of innovative outdoor living decor. From stylish planters and baskets, to flower boxes, plant stands, and fire pits - it's the one stop brand for all outdoor decor needs.
