4. Showcase containers. What is the first thing you notice when you look at this photograph? That voluptuous purple pot filled with succulents. The surrounding plants provide height, sculptural form and color. yet it is the container that is the real focal point.That splash of purple is not isolated, however. It repeats in the tall purple column at the end of the wall. Imagine this planting and container with a cedar fence or an evergreen hedge behind it — the effect wouldn’t be nearly as powerful. The dusky rose wall does not dominate the scene, however, but rather allows it to be fully appreciated.

consider color in the garden, we usually think of plants, furniture and decorative accents such as cushions, candles and garden art. But what about walls? Think of this expansive surface as a blank canvas just waiting for your artistic touch. What color will you use? Will you choose one shade for the entire wall or highlight certain areas with an accent color? Will you go for an intense, highly saturated color or a softer look? Before you reach for that can of paint, ask yourself what you are trying to say. Are you looking to create a focal point? Or perhaps you wish to merge the garden and the greater landscape? Will the wall itself be the feature, or will it showcase something else? Here are five ideas to get you started with color.
