Dark and dramatic planting schemes using flowers and foliage with deep purple, red and black colouring can be the perfect calming backdrop for relaxing in the garden or socialising.
Colours can either be categorised as dark or bright colours. For instance, dark colours are blues, purples and pinks that are used to create the feel of a serene sanctuary and a space to de-stress.
Dark colours are also be used to create the illusion of more space, which is helpful if you have a small garden. Incorporating neutral tones will also help to maintain the aesthetic you want to create whilst not being overpowering and detracting from the impact.
