What Houzz contributors are saying:
3. Choose a soothing colour paletteCool colours like blues, silvers and greens, as well as neutrals, can feel more serene in a landscape than hotter reds, yellows, pinks and oranges. That being said, the colours that make you feel calm and peaceful can be different from those of the next person. Select plants and hardscape materials in colours that you personally find calming, and arrange them together in large groupings. For example, a purple monochromatic planting of salvia and catmint give this path a relaxing feeling.
