Our gardens are meant to enhance our lives, colour can be soothing or exciting, it can be a riot or a river, it can be front and centre or something much more subtle, but whatever our choices, colour is the goal.
When you get right down to it gardens are really about colour.
That colour can come from flowers, foliage, bark, pottery, furniture, fences and even artwork, but in the end, it is all about colour.
Any colour scheme can work, it’s your garden so if you’re happy who cares what anyone else thinks.
However, understanding the basic principles of using colour in design can help make that picture in your head a reality. Be it a soothing sanctuary or a patio ready for a party.
