Matt Kilburn added this to 8 Ideas From Celebrated Garden Designers
Contrasting background colors. Contrast is king in garden spaces. Often, contrast can be created by various hardscape and softscape elements, but attention should be paid to color tones too. In this garden by Andy Sturgeon, a rich, dark gray wall provides the perfect backdrop to emphasize the contrasting colors and forms of the foliage in front.
In a tribute to Jekyll, Lutyens said "the true adornment of a garden lies surely in its flowers and plants. No artist has so wide a palette as the garden designer, no artist has great need of discretion and reserve."Today's generation of landscape designers are also artists in their use of informal planting. Andy Sturgeon's M&G Investments Garden at the 2012 Chelsea Flower Show was a perfect example of the return to this juxtaposition of formal and informal in the creation of the "new English" style.
