Color Your Landscape


 
Home Improvement,Gardening

Color is a defining feature of landscapes and one of the most noticeable features of every home. It is important to find the right color scheme for your outdoor space and implement it appropriately. This article will look at crucial things to consider regarding landscape color as well as specific color scheme options.

It is beneficial to start with some direction. Therefore, begin this process by considering what you want and what colors you are interested in using. What color are the surrounding features and your house and do you want to blend or contrast? When and how will you be using the yard? What is the style of your garden and what are the growing conditions and plant availability? From what favorite objects can you draw inspiration? The answers to these questions are relevant and can help you plan and make decisions regarding color. After you think about the direction in which you want to proceed, you must select a color scheme. Here are a few options for your color scheme:

  • Monochromatic: using only one color in addition to green foliage; can include light and dark variations such as including pink among other shades of red
  • Analogous: using between three and five adjacent colors on the color wheel such as a mix of yellow, yellow-orange, orange, red-orange, and red; can also include light and dark variations
  • Complementary: using opposite colors on the color wheel such as blue and orange or violet and yellow; generally adds high contrast
  • Color triad: using three colors that can be connected with an equilateral triangle on the color wheel such as orange, green, and violet

Picking a specific color scheme is critical, but it is just one aspect of working color into your landscape. The following are some additional tips and considerations relevant to color and design:

  • Neutral colors: In landscaping and gardening, neutral colors encompass colors that do not change the effect when mixed with any other color, whether bright or dark. These include white, green, shades of brown, black, and grey.
  • Dark vs. bright colors: Dark colors such as purple and blue are more calming and look cooler. They also make areas appear larger and more spacious. On the other hand, bright colors like yellows and oranges make areas appear smaller and more festive, and they draw attention to certain areas that you wish to highlight as focal points.
  • Texture matters: Coarser plants give a look of prominence to the color, for example. Fine texture can be made to look coarser with bold colors. Harnessing texture and working with it well adds another element to your coloring.
  • Test your color schemes before planting. Utilizing drawn out color studies, color chips, potted plants, and computer software like Windows Paint, you can envision your planned colored scheme without risking planting them and having it not look right.

Truly working with color to make it special and fit with your vision for your outdoor space will greatly enhance your Nashville home. These points can guide you in your decisions regarding landscape color, and you can have the area improved in no time.
