Add More Colors

According to Susan Cohan, you should include more colors in your landscape garden. This can be achieved in your landscape with the help of houses, painted fences and arbors. Apart from gray, black and brown, opt for shades like dark blue and olive green.


Landscapes that appreciate subtlety will help you create a soothing environment. There are so many ways of introducing subtlety into your home. Gardens with edgy stone walls and delicate patterns, look and feel subtle all year round!

Go For Indoor Plants

Sometimes you should start with indoor plants. Instead of opting for single houseplants, go for collective shrubs and indoor edibles. Small sized vegetable gardens tend to produce better yields than bigger ones. In fact, many people start with microgreens from their windowsill and move to the next degree.

Over the years, more and more have people have invested in fire pits. Fire pits come in different shapes and sizes. Most homeowners consider fire pits as intuitive accents of the landscape.
