Landscaping Tip #9
Pay Attention to Texture
Have you noticed how different things stick out to you because of their color? Color will attract attention. Many gardeners will add color to a landscape and stop there. But you can add a whole lot of character and personality to your landscape by using different textures. Look at these pictures below that show a lot of different color and texture that gives the landscape character and personality. Notice how the shaped bushes contrast nicely with the background and how the landscaping rocks embedded in the hill contrast with the top layer of the landscape. These contrasts of texture and color add very pleasing to the eyes.
