Description

Your garden can be a kaleidoscope of color in every season!

Ask any gardener and they will tell you, color is the most important (and most fun!) part of garden design. In The Nonstop Color Garden, author Nellie Neal shows how to use color as an exciting element in your garden during all four seasons--and it's not just flowers! Year-round color is possible by including trees, shrubs, and groundcovers that produce colorful berries and bark, as well as flowers during spring and summer. Even the shapes of plants can enhance your garden by providing all-season architectural interest--Nellie makes it easy to explore it all. The Nonstop Color Garden is perfect for the more experienced gardener, but even an engaged novice will find much to learn about the best plants for nonstop color, garden structure, and garden design. Nellie presents several strategies for crafting a thematically cohesive yet unstylized landscape that includes plant selection and placement. Use the balanced juxtaposition of opposites in texture, size, shape and color. Create unifying pairings of similar foliage types. Work with existing land forms and indigenous vegetation. Everyone who takes pride and pleasure in their garden will not want to miss this informative, fun, colorful book!
