The Meaning Behind Colors:

 There is nothing like color in the right places to make your property stand out from the rest! With plenty of time in the season to add color to your property, let's address how to best catch peoples' attention:

Purple: a dramatic and luxurious color to tie into landscape design, that may be warm or cool depending on its surrounding colors
Yellow: an optimistic color bringing happiness to the garden when used in small quantities
White: a fresh and clean color that creates a bright appearance in landscapes
Orange: conveys happiness and creates a friendly atmosphere while bringing attention to areas where planted
Green: creates a restful landscape that conveys reassurance and safety, bringing calm spaces into the landscaping
Red: excellent for drawing attention to focal points on your property
Blue: a cool and calming color that works best when paired with purple and yellow blossoms
