Here, for example, I love how the planting bed offers a big chartreuse burst from a golden creeping Jenny mass (Lysimachia nummularia 'Aurea'). It is contrasted (in color and texture) by a plantation of bread fescue (Festuca 'Elijah Blue'). It's easy to create a melee look when planting if you're trying to plant one of everything. I get it right with this gardening idea: Re-use the same colors, shapes or varieties of plants in plantations.
Figure 19 - 32. The angles that the sun follows through the sky. In summer, it is higher and has a wider arc (solid circles) and in winter it is lower (dashed circles). Figure 19 - 33. A rain barrel is filled with PVC pipe attached to a roof downspout. This barrel is close to the garden for easy access to water. A landscape wish list can be long. An adequate space to comfortably integrate the items on the list is essential. In the case of terraces and patios, it is better to go too big rather than too small.
Use trees to shade the walls rather than the roof of the house. The branches of trees on the roof spill a bed that clogs the gutters. If heavy limbs fall during a storm, they can damage the house. Create a windbreak by identifying the prevailing winter wind and installing evergreen trees in the wind of the house. A row of trees is effective, but a five-row windbreak with several different species is more effective. The windbreak also serves as a privacy screen. A biodiversity-rich (or screened) windbreak composed of native plants also provides sources of food and shelter for beneficial insects and wildlife, including birds.
For my backyard landscape, I have deliberately chosen plants with a bluish gray color and plants with yellow flowers. These textures and colors will create a contrast that will not fail to dominate my landscape. I reached the shape with the stone around my beds and the variety having a hardwood tree, a myrtle of flowering crepe, herbs and shrubs. There is rhythm because I have placed identical plants in all the different beds ~ you will see this rhythm repeated as you sweep through my landscape. The nandine will bloom red berries in winter and an olive tree will be covered with white flowers in spring.
We recognize that the more a person goes through transition spaces from a completely closed environment to a fully open environment, the more the experience becomes transparent and connected. Addressing the hierarchy, or order, of space and scale is also important. More precisely, land use can be determined by the scale of a space. Roads, for example, have a defined hierarchy. All lanes can be of standard size (large enough to accommodate a vehicle), but the streets are designed to accommodate a certain volume of traffic. As such, a level 1 road such as a highway may have four lanes in each direction.
Fall and winter are usually some of the best times to prune, but look for each plant in your garden to make sure. Too much color without a sense of harmony can become a distraction. Before making a trip to the nursery, you need to know which palette you want as well as which colors work well together. Look at the color of your house, then choose a color that really frames it. Try to stay semi-monochromatic for the most part because if there is too much color and it is too strong, it can almost become a distraction. Repetition and some harmony in a garden goes a long way. Many owners make the mistake of over watering.
