Create a Perennial Bed

How would you like it? Red with a dash of purple or would you prefer a tone on tone? With perennials the colorful and varied life moves into your garden beds.

Colors create moods – it is therefore worthwhile to choose the flower colors of perennials carefully. It is best to limit yourself to one main color and subordinate it to several matching shades. Tones of a color group, e.g. B. yellow, orange and red, generally create a harmonious color gradient.

We’ll give you tips on how to design your garden and create a new perennial bed.

The color makes the picture

Complementary colors such as orange and blue, on the other hand, ensure the greatest possible contrast and reinforce each other. In this way, you can draw attention to certain areas in the bed.

Blue and other cool hues create space and make small gardens look bigger if you place the plants in the back garden areas. Yellow looks friendly and spices up dark corners, but also makes the garden look smaller. Red likes to push itself into the foreground and dominates, white is a calm haven.
