There are many elements that go into designing a garden – color, form, sound, fragrance, even the texture of the plants. Texture in garden design, refers to the surface quality of the plant. Plant textures run the gamut from delicate and fine, like a threadleaf coreopsis, to the coarse and bold look of a wide, rippled Hosta leaf.

Key Takeaways:

  • Color lacks dimension without texture, which can soften spaces, provide visual interest, fashion backdrops and set moods.
  • Landscape design is comprised of five basic principles: scale, balance, repetition, dominance and unity.
  • The subtle use of texture also can create a sense of scale and distance.
