Have you ever walked into a flowering garden and your mood instantly changes? Perhaps you feel more relaxed or maybe more alive. The colors that you plant in your landscape can affect the mood of your garden, and in turn influence the mood of the people who visit.
One of the best ways to decide what type of mood you want in your yard is to visit a few gardens and discover what colors you like. Do you want your backyard to be a place to relax? Or maybe you want an exciting backyard where people come to play. It is amazing how much the color in your yard can set the tone.
As you start to notice color in different landscapes, pay close attention to certain public areas. Think about the flowers that are planted at amusement parks. These flowers are generally bright and showy, creating the exciting atmosphere that prevails where there is fun to be had.
On the other hand, some parks may have a meditation garden where the colors are very calming and peaceful. Professional landscape designers understand the importance of color in setting the mood. You can recreate mood landscaping in your own yard.
