A garden is a complex combination of colour and the elements that affect it. Good colour design can make a garden an inviting and beautiful place. This book helps gardeners use colour as an essential tool in design by explaining what colour is, how we perceive it, what affects our perception of colour, and how colours can be combined to create beautiful gardens. it provides a basic vocabulary for talking and thinking about colour so that colour can be used effectively in any garden. Most gardeners rely on intuition and conventional rules of colour composition as they arrange their garden. Sandra Austin, a professional designer, invites you to think beyond the colour wheel to understand the factors that influence our perception of colour. She introduces you to various systems of colour classification to show that there are ways to communicate colours beyond the basic colour names. She explains how colour attributes create the many colour variations and how colours work together in colour families and combinations. Colour is changed in the. garden by light, texture, and time. Colour in shade is different From colour in full sun. The changing light of the seasons makes colours more vivid or subtle. Textures of plants and other garden elements also affect colour. Knowing how these factors work together will enable you to create special effects as well as blend colours more harmoniously. Stunning photos of gardens provide clear visual examples of these concepts that you can bring to your own garden setting. Informative colour graphics help clarify why colour combinations succeed. This book will encourage you to look at your garden in a new way and to create great gardens that have yet to be imagined.
