Harmony balances other design principles by bringing together individual components and creating a coherent whole, ensuring that all parts of the design fit and complement each other (Figure 19-26). Figure 19 - 22. This simple design does not overwhelm the small back yard. A dwarf Japanese maple, a bit of chartreuse cover, and a stone path leading to a bench make this space seem larger than it is while remaining comfortable. Figure 19 - 23. Different colors of heather, seen in both the foreground and the background, are rep- resented in this landscape. These repetitive groupings are not boring but lend rather unity to design. Figure 19-24. There are strong horizontal lines in this landscape with the stone wall, the colorful perennials and the wisteria arbor. These lines draw attention across the landscape.
The best remedy is compost from a reliable source (check with The Natural Gardener in ATX). It must be the best, most reflexive post I have ever read. Thank you for that. My wife and I have just bought our first home and our landscaping is to say the least we can say. None of us have any idea about landscaping design and our imagination is much bigger than our wallet. Thanks for putting things in perspective, I will start small, start small, start small.
Make your sound easier than HGTV shows! You need so much to come to my house because I'm so bad with plants. This would make a picture before and after spectacular! For once - someone who does not ring so much easy and fast. We did a little gardening job over the last two weekends. It took about 8 hours to replace a tree and move 3 bushes from the front to the back of the house. Stupid landscaper for the developer put in a tree that has no business planted in the south, and the bushes were not only too big for the area where they were planted But two of them were directly in front of the sprinkler heads so the sprinklerâ € ™ they are themselves ineffective. It pays to do your research, develop a plan, and then check the different variables to see if that plan will actually work.
