8. Order versus disorder
“You don’t have to stick with one style in your garden,” says Robert. “Sometimes two disparate looks complement each other.” A case in point is this skillful planting that transitions from monochrome to multicolour, and from naturalized to orderly.
9. Highlighting colour
The idea here, according to Robert, is that the white flowers at the front of the space would segue into an explosion of colourful plantings further on, representing white light being split like a prism into its constituent colours. Consider playing with white in your own yard to frame bold blocks of colour.
