How to Design a Garden
Ever wonder how the pros create garden plans and designs? Designing a garden is easier than you think. First, pick a color theme for your home garden — this will create a mood. After selecting your garden’s color theme, choose garden plants with varying height — it creates visual excitement and energy. Next, try to repeat a pattern when doing yard landscape — pick garden plants and flowers and repeat them throughout your yard. Next, use garden plants and flowers with different textures and shapes. Finally, incorporate colorful foliage to play off garden blooms. With these garden landscape ideas, you don’t have to be a garden designer to get the best looking home garden. [Source: BHG.com]
