Absolutely awesome!
I am always trying to add pops of color into our landscaping but it never seems to come together for me. I guess it is go bold or don’t bother?
Love the video also, very well done and enjoyable.

Thank you VERY MUCH SerenDippity!!! I truly appreciate your comments! I have been fighting with this “push/pull” of wanting to keep the bold color as accents or to go all out. I finally decided WHAT THE HECK….you only live once and it’s time to let loose…lol

The thing that brought it all together really was the addition of the black accents used consistently throughout the landscape. It ties all the craziness down and makes sense of it. ( I have always had the same problem you mentioned) I would guess that any neutral like white, cream, grey, rust brown….used the same way as the black might unify the same way
