A great place to start when focusing your color palette is choosing a combination from the color wheel. We’ve included three common color combinations below for inspiration.
A monochromatic color theme focuses on blooms and foliage all in one color family (all pink or all white). Consider dark and light tones within the same color to add depth and interest.
Complementary colors are opposite each other on the color wheel. These include: Green/Red, Orange/Blue and Purple/Yellow. These pairings tend to be bold and provide the most contrast.
Analogous colors are next to each other on the color wheel. They can be categorized into warm and cool colors. Warm colors include reds, oranges, and yellows. Cool colors are greens, blues and purples.
Depending on your colors, your garden can invoke different moods. Warm colors will add energy and vibrancy to your space, whereas cool colors will lend a relaxing and restful atmosphere.
