Choosing The Colours For Your Landscape Design
Ottawa prides itself on being a bright, vibrant city, from the Tulip festival in the spring to the majestic colours in the fall. Your landscape should be no different. We want to help you choose the right colours that match your personal style, compliments your home and suits the plants, gardens and patio you choose.
Take A Walk
The first thing we recommend is that you take a walk around your yard and neighbourhood. Pull ideas from your neighbours and the colours that are natural to where you live. Choose colours that will compliment the bricks on your home and accent the gardens you have and your personal style. As a general rule of thumb we recommend that you should pick a colour that is a few shades lighter than the colour of your home. It will serve as a focal point and define each.
What is the area used for?
Think about the application of the project. Around the pool consider choosing lighter colours that keep bare feet and pets cool and comfortable in the hot Ottawa summer. For a driveway, you might consider a darker or multi-coloured design that can better hide oil and dirt stains that might happen over the years.
Break ALL The Rules!
Remember, there are no rules! When choosing colours we can help make recommendations but ultimately you are the boss and you should choose colours that make you happy.
