Creating Unified Spaces
It may seem ambiguous, but color is actually a powerful tool that can be used in landscapes to create a relaxing mood, liven up a drab space, draw attention away from an eyesore, remind of us of days gone by, and so much more.
We’ve planted ocean blues, cool pinks and luminous chartreuse to help turn this pergola into a calming sanctuary built to encourage visitors to relax, stay awhile and enjoy this calming space. Using gray pots for each planting binds and grounds them visually in the space.

By using earth-toned containers on this neutral flagstone patio, the sunset-toned blooms and fiery red foliage take center stage. Tropical colors like these can create a warm, welcoming mood and add spunk to otherwise plain spaces.
