Landscape Design Plan Ideas – How to Use Color and Texture to Create Your Relaxing Retreat

Residential Landscape Maintenance Dallas and Fort Worth

As a homeowner, you take immense pride in the craftsmanship and appearance of your landscape, especially the front yard. Thankfully, local outdoor stores offer a variety of shrubbery, flowers, hedges, and small trees that you plant in plain sight. Before long, your yard will be the envy of the entire neighborhood. Of course, to accomplish such a task, you’ll need to understand how to use both color and texture correctly.


When it comes to color, there are so many options to select from; it’s outstanding! Extend the color in your garden or yard by choosing plants that flower at various times of the year. This influx of color at random times will offer a sense of wonder.

For most homes, the garden blooms once or twice per year. Those points are colorful and pleasant, but what about the rest of the year? You’ll want to have a nice variety of plants that are spread apart to ensure color year-round.


Where possible, mix leaf types – shape, size, and color – and use a combination of trees, grasses, and perennials. You can skip using annuals, except for fun pot plantings. They tend to be more expensive and must be replaced each year, which is just unnecessary work on your part.

Furthermore, a nice of set shrubs in front of the home will contract the exterior paint wonderfully. Pair the shrubbery with a few short trees placed periodically on the front lawn, and you’ll notice an immediate change.
