These seem really great landscaping tips! I recently discovered that landscaping is much more difficult than I thought at the start. I agree, it seems to me that it would be much easier for me to build my garden if I understood better the basic elements of design. These tips for understanding balance, pace, unity and form will really help me improve the look of my yard. Thanks for the good ideas. You have given a lot of things to think about! Oh my there are so many wonderful tips here!
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.
The grid will be flush with the lawn for easy mowing. A French drain is a versatile system for treating all kinds of drainage problems. It disperses water over a large area through a buried perforated pipe. The pipe must be surrounded by a material allowing the water to flow. Classically it was gravel, but NDS sells a system called EZflow that includes the pipe and the surrounding polystyrene aggregate in one convenient and lightweight package. A French drainage system can be used alone or in combination with a dry well. A properly designed French drain system does not require an outlet. The water will simply soak in the soil as it runs down the perforated pipe.
