We all want dramatic curb appeal in our landscapes. One way to accomplish this is to use brightly colored, eye catching plants. The problem with adding too many bright plants is that it can quickly turn from eye catching to eyesore, as too many of these colors can clash and become uncomplementary. To avoid this, you can use color blocking in the garden.
Like hosta rings around trees, yew, juniper, mugo pine, spirea and daylilies are often overused as foundation plantings. They are all nice plants that can be used in combination with other plants to create beautiful landscapes, full of varied but unified colors and textures. However, if a landscape designer comes to your home for a consultation and says, We will just put a row of yews along this side, a bunch of spirea and daylilies on that side, a big sprawling juniper here, and rings of hostas around all the trees, simply thank them for their time and call the next landscape designer on the list. Most likely, if you are considering spending money on a new landscape, you are hoping for actual curb appeal, not just yawns from passersby.
