5 Ways To Add Color To Your Landscape

Colors that can make your boring outdoor space look extraordinary can come from many sources. Here are some simple ways you can add beautiful hues outside:

Grow Flowering Plants In Containers

A very easy way of adding color to the outdoors is to incorporate flowering plants in containers. The miniature gardens that you make can be easily moved. Hanging flower baskets can also add color outdoors.

Bring In Colorful Pots

You can create a more colorful garden by using plant containers in shades of magenta, blue, orange, purple and red. Pots offer you an opportunity to bring in striking color variations to your outdoor space. You can pair colorful containers with plants that are prized for their foliage such as succulents, hostas and herbs. Using colorful containers can also incorporate colors to shady areas where flowers do not usually grow.

Use Colorful Outdoor Furniture

Tables and sitting areas often serve as the focal point in the landscape, making them an ideal place to add color. One way to do this inexpensively is to trade in the tan and brown cushions for ones with eye-catching colors. You may also consider adding colorful pillows to your seat cushions.

Use Garden Art

Outdoor decors such as mosaic art, colorful stepping stones and Talavera pottery can handle weather extremes outside of your home while adding interest to your landscape. A mural can also brighten up a bare outdoor wall. You may also want to add some decorative tiles. Tiles come in different colors and designs so they make a great material for adding color to outdoor structures such as kitchen countertops, stairs and water features.

Paint A Wall With An Eye-Catching Color

Painting a wall is a fun way of infusing rich hues into your landscape. Some homeowners’ associations may not allow brightly colored walls on building exteriors but you can opt for painting parts of the landscape that are not visible from the road.

When selecting a paint color, go for one that complements the surrounding area, which includes the plants and the outdoor furniture. You can use a color wheel if you need help deciding between a complementary or analogous color.

An experienced painting service contractor can give your wall a new color with a smooth finish, as well as provide you with inputs when it comes to choosing the right hues for your landscape.
