When it comes to landscaping everyone has their style and preference. After all, that’s what gardening and landscaping are about…making it one’s own! Some homeowners choose to place their plants by colors, similar heights, and compatibility. While some homeowners want to just random plant flowers wherever they feel the need strike. Is there a right way versus the wrong way?
Most designers would suggest that it is better to have a theme, that by mixing too many colors and too many different varieties you will end up having a cluttered mess. If one would look at images, they will see that many homeowners adapt to the same theme of planting similar colors near each other for a more bold impact or look.
Blazing Star flowers are unique and colorful.
Can one have too many colors? Yes, planting too many colors will again give one a messy look or a cluttered look. It will look as if one doesn’t know which plants they prefer, so they plant them all. While in some instances and yards such as big yards this look of a lot of plants mixed with a lot of colors will work, in a small garden or landscape it will look too cluttered. If you choose to plant colors, together one doesn’t have to plant all the same flower. For example, violets come in white and blue so you can use both varieties. Lilies also would work as well. Using the same flower that can bloom in various colors will work well together and create a more uniform, dynamic of a look.
