Homeowners tend to focus more on the colors they choose for interior designs and not so much on the colors for outdoor design. The color of the furniture, the flowers and also the other accessories you use in landscaping will have an impact on the overall design.
Here are some color suggestions and various ways you can go about incorporating them in your outdoor design.
Green. Well-manicured, green lawns are beautiful for the outdoors. If you have an area that is bare, consider planting some low maintenance grass in that area. There are also synthetic grass options that require no maintenance. Green in your outdoor design creates a light, airy feeling that is important for relaxation.
Red. Red is a vibrant and bold color. If you have an extremely large lawn and want to make it look a little smaller, then red is your color. You can utilize red in the form or patches of plants such as roses and other flowers that bloom red.
Orange. Orange is a cozy color. If you plan to use your outdoor areas for relaxing, incorporate orange into your outdoor design with cushions and orange-colored furniture.
Brown. Brown goes well with outdoor landscaping designs. When matched with blooming flowers, a green lawn and lush vegetation, brown in any shade creates a natural atmosphere.
