In these same ways, using pastels in the garden can create a space where we can unwind after a hard day and feel refreshed. A pastel garden can be placed almost anywhere in the yard. Pastel colored flowers look beautiful in bright sunlight, but also stand out in shade gardens and can brighten up especially dark areas. Although not actually a pastel color, white is often used in pastel garden schemes. Silver and dark green also provide striking contrast to pastel garden plants.
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.
Wabi sabi in gardens can be a way of imitating natural environments in a cared-for garden. To explore natural changes in your wabi sabi garden, plant perennials and self-seeding plants that will establish their own corners of the garden over the course of years. Place stones in locations that will not receive foot traffic so that moss and lichens will grow over them.
Overuse of common plants. With over 400,000 species of flowering plants in the world, it often amazes me that no one can seem to find anything to put around trees besides a ring of hostas. One of the most common mistakes in landscaping I come across is the overuse of the same old humdrum plants. While there are hundreds of different varieties of hostas that can be used to create beautiful shade gardens, that singular ring of variegated hostas around every tree in the neighborhood is quite boring and unnatural looking.
