The importance of color in garden design

Color, like sound and smell, has the power to strengthen the design and evoke a mood. Pastel colors are calming, and bright vivid colors can be stimulating and invigorating. Light can have stunning effects on color;¬†back-lighting ornamental grasses can brighten their rusty fronds in the fall with a golden glaze. An orange splash or red peeking from above can lead the eye to a special place. Repeating patterns of color can strengthen walkway direction; massing color can act as the principal landscape feature. Sprinkling dots and sprays of color may evoke a bit of garden mystique. Visualizing color and its seasonal changes is an element of design that frustrates many. If you find that color is the overwhelming challenge that you can’t overcome, call us. We will save you hours of headaches.
