This series is all about colour in the garden. Part 4-Cool colours in garden design.

Did you do art at school? You probably did and may even know about the colour wheel.


Cool colours with greys and pinks

This next segment is about using cool colours in garden design. Cool colours fall on the purple-blue-green side of the colour wheel and also include white, gray, and silver but not black.

Classic cool-colour combinations include blue and pink, a range of blues arranged in a monochromatic scheme, or purple and silver.

 Pastel forms of traditionally warm colours such as yellow, salmon, and apricot also fit into a cool-theme garden plan.
