Tidy Rows of Varying Colored Flowers

Crazy about flowers? If you can’t get enough of the beautiful color flowers provide, choose several colors of flowers that look nice together. For example, the photo above has flowers that go from pink to purple, to red, and then yellow.

The pink, purple, and red flowers go together, with white as a buffer between the red and yellow flowers on the other side.

Tree Base Flower Bed

Place emphasis on your beautiful green trees by placing a bed of flowers at their base. Even if your bed of flowers ends up much small than the one in the photo above, it will make a dramatic difference. It is a good idea to make the bed of flowers proportional to your tree size.

Square Raised Flower Bed

Raised flower beds look great in both your front and backyard. Keep things looking need by being consistent with flower bed shapes. If you prefer square, use square raised beds for the entirety of your garden.
