Design Basics

The great thing about flowers is that you really can’t go wrong. Even if a perennial bed doesn’t turn out exactly like what you had in mind, chances are it’s going to be attractive. After all, have you ever encountered an ugly flower? And unlike the wallpaper or paint color that looked great in the store but now grates on your nerves, perennial plants can be moved and rearranged (and even discarded) to suit your tastes. It’s easier, and more fun, than re-wallpapering!

Before you begin designing your perennial garden, let’s look at some basic concepts such as color, scale, and texture. These design concepts will help you choose a look and decide on specific plants.
