6. Foliage color that draws attention. Color is one of the most powerful tools at your disposal when you’re designing your garden. Choosing plants with foliage that contrasts the surrounding plantings is a surefire way to draw the eye to a desired area. Situating garden art in a sea of color (like this statue positioned in front of a mass of bright chartreuse ferns) makes it come alive, and different effects can be accomplished as the seasons shift and the foliage changes color.
