Male: This mistake is one you can’t afford to make, scattered color.
Justin Cave: Scattered color is another big mistake that people make in the landscape design.
Steve Sandalis: A lot of people get caught up, they go to the nursery and they see the cute pink plant, the cute blue plant, they put everything together and it looks like a big mix mash.
Nick Stevens: You just can’t decorate your yard that way because you don’t want your yard looking like a big box of crayons exploded all over.
Shirley Bovshow: Almost like you’re looking at a mosaic, a little bit of yellow here, little white, little red, it doesn’t say anything unless you’re very close up.
Nancy Soriano: You need to know what your palliate is and what you want to do and also what colors work with other colors. I also think that if there’s too much color and it’s too strong, it almost can become destruction.
Dawson Connor: Look at the house color and choose one color that really frames it, it will make a nice, bold statement.
Jimmy Little: Pick a color scheme, pick a color you like, get different shades of that color, different versions of that color but try to stay semi monochromatic for the most part.
Elizabeth Low: I usually pick two colors of flower and that way, you sort of can repeat the pattern throughout the garden.
William Moss: Repetition and some harmony on the garden goes a long way.
Male: So don’t scatter color all over your yard but do pick complementary colors for a well arranged look.
