Garden Design Tips – Height
Garden Design Tips – Heads, Shoulders Knees and Toes
He’s a bit dapper and makes quite an impression, but what part are you looking at, all of him?
The gardening equivalent of ‘look at my nice shoes’!
Your eyeline looks straight ahead, it pays more attention to what is in front of your face NOT your feet , so let’s do the same in your garden.
As the title says ‘Heads, shoulders, knees and toes’ – and head is first on the list. So when planning a garden border you need something to look good at head height. That will catch your eye the most, then you add interest further down.
So turn your garden on it’s head and stop putting little things in at the bottom and adding a few taller bits because you will end up with a ‘torso-less’ border, instead start with a taller plant and work down, that way the whole design has better structure, is more interesting and you have a better looking ‘soldier’!
