How to Set the Mood in Your Garden




Color is a powerful tool to use when gardening. It not only adds ambiance to the backyard, but it can also be very soothing and relaxing. Whether you've got the green thumb or you are just wanting to experiment with something new, here are some tips on how to use color while gardening to achieve your personal tone in your private paradise:


Harmonious colors: Hues next to each other on the color wheel take on the property of each other and blend in together. To create some drama and add some flair, play with  different styles and textures. Having a harmonious color garden will mean it will be one color. No other color is allowed because it will defeat the purpose of calling it your "blue" or "green" garden.


Complementary colors: Opposites attract, especially when it comes to gardening. Complementary colors make a bold statement. It creates drama and excitement, when done properly. Throwing in some neutral colors such as white helps balance the "pop" that complementary colors bring into the garden.


Combining colors and getting the desired results is a fine art. Use your favorite flowers and colors and have some fun creating a garden that is unique and truly yours!
