Before planting this spring, think of what emotions and feelings you want the garden to
project. While this may sound a bit New Age, colors in the garden can impact our feelings. Want
to create a retreat where one can relax and unwind after a busy day? Use the cool shades of
blue, delicate pinks, rose and lilac or creamy white.
Need a jolt in the morning to get you moving? Try hot colors like bright orange, vivid reds and
radiant yellows and purples to cheer you up and get you started for a great day.
