Burgundy Revisited

 I came across this stunning Oregon garden yesterday by Mosaic Gardens Landscape.  Sure to be an 'Oregon Classic", the use of color especially the burgundys and how they relate to one another, as well as play off the other colors is truly outstanding. There is not a thing I would  change in this installation.. The use of burgundy accents is truly note worthy  in this landscape.

 Color, texture, placement and balance all contribute to the overall design and were all taking into consideration during the planning and installation.

Burgundy used as focal points brings your eye further  into the garden

Important to this overall puzzle,  grey stonework helps to relax the eye as well as not distract from the tapestry created by the other colors. 

The  smooth solid mass of the grey urn, in total contrast to the rest of this textured garden, leads your eye up the stairs and  along the stone path. Using any other color or texture would not have been as dramatic or effective.

At the end of the trail, the grey weathered gate and trellis once again add an element of contrast as well as uniformity by relating back to the stone path  and urn within the garden

If you would like to add a more Classical feel to your garden please contact me for further information at mwhite841@verizon.net
