Whether cottage, modern or unique landscape styles are your taste, a properly designed landscape will display your style with unity. Your landscape should be appealing and inviting, not an eyesore for the neighborhood.
Complementary colors are colors that are opposite one other on the color wheel, such as orange and purple. Then there are the harmonious analogous color schemes, which are found next to each other, like purple and blue. In a blue and purple flower garden color scheme, for instance, you could mix plants like: Delphinium, Salvia, Lavender, False indigo, Campanula, Blue colored foliage or grasses.
When creating a pastel garden, include light colored flowering trees, shrubs, and vines, as well as perennials and annuals to add different heights and textures to the bed. Variety in flower beds can maintain garden color longer, attract different beneficial insects and pollinators, and also hinder some plant specific pests and diseases.
By definition, a mandala is a geometric shape or pattern that symbolizes the universe, a meditation tool for creating sacred space, relaxation and focusing the mind, or a symbol used as a gateway to a spiritual journey. Mandalas are usually a circle that contain starburst, floral, wheel or spiral patterns within it. A mandala garden is simply a garden space with plants that take on this design principle. Traditional mandalas were actually a square containing a circle which contained these patterns. Also, in traditional mandalas, the four directions, north, east, south and west, or the four elements earth, air, fire and water were often represented in the mandala pattern.
