What Houzz contributors are saying:
Rhythm through repetition. Thoughtful repetition is at the heart of the Zen garden. Instead of having a mismatched one of this and one of that, repetition does the mental processing for you, so all you have to do is sit back and peacefully assimilate. Rhythm is soothing because it’s how we feel a connection with a space. We all have internal rhythms, whether it’s our pulse or that song that plays nonstop in our heads. Rhythm through thoughtful repetition in the garden speaks to our internal rhythms. The ensuing conversation produces tranquillity.Teach Your Landscape Rhythm
If diversity is kept out of our cards, repetition can greatly improve our hand. Here a series of identical planters, sleek and smooth, forms a regiment along a beautiful wall. Each planter is topped with a highly contrasting variegated yucca to create a powerful contemporary scene. By the simplicity, maintenance is kept to a bare minimum.
Add Perspective With RepetitionThis line of variegated yuccas planted in tall containers is more than just decoration — it employs a favorite feature of contemporary garden design, repetition. To achieve the best results, each container needs to mirror the next with an identical planting — the simpler, the better. Repetition can help create perspective and harmony within a design, especially in smaller spaces where boundaries need to be defined.A repetitive line of containers can make a garden appear longer or wider.
