Palette in Landscape Design: Melody for eyes

Sunday, 26 April 2009

landscape designWe perceive approximately 90% information through vision. A garden is the symphony of images and pictures. We only observe the general look of plants - form, texture and other staff. Though, the first thing to catch your eyes is color. Any discord in the color - and the garden loses its harmony as well as melody cannot be concordant if it is based on dissonance and false notes.

You may not beat your brains out and stop with greenery only like grasses and trees (apart from blooming trees, but only spruces, because they are forever green). But this garden will not be unique, and the spirit created will be dull as well.

Color in the landscape design plays the same role as spice in food making. And the same as with spices, you should be very careful with color palette. When cooking you may combine sour and sweet, sweet and salty, bitter and spicy but we do it in a good proportion, but carefully, thus the same with color.

Bekhterev stated that the color gamma well matched makes a more favorable influence than many other medications. Color influences the human organism on the physical level; it provokes physiological reaction; and it also affects the efficiency and vital activity of separate organs.

Every color has its own emotional nuance that invokes a particular mood and influences the feelings of a human being, appetite and rest. For a reason Bacon wrote, «Color is life».

The color influences our life and its effect is great. In ancient time people worshipped light and fire, and color is derivative from light. In all myths the rainbow is the bridge between the heavens and the earth, and walking along the rainbow you may be given immortality, and dwarves traditionally hide а jug of gold under the brim of rainbow. And all these are myths related to color, to the attempt to express the significance of color affect on the life of people. Subconsciousness of every person contains an associated chain incidental to color. As a result people try to avoid colors that irritate, cause feeling of discomfort or and anxiety instinctively, in the back of mind. And one always tends to color that is pleasant to eyes.

You can visually extend or narrow the space in the garden with the help of color, and create the illusion of perspective. If particular chord is used to match the garden you will get the illusion that even in the hottest summer day it is cool in the garden and this is due to the color gamma. You take another chord - and in autumn gloomy day your garden will look warmed with sun rays, as warm and happy place.

The rules are simple: warm colors create the effect of temperature rise, and cold colors make the place colder. Blue color is associated with freshness and coolness of water, while red color you compare with heat of flame. Dark and cold colors hold the things away, make them smaller. Hot colors make things bigger and make them closer. However, there are nuances one should know. For instance, yellow, red and orange colors are warm colors. However, visually they make things extended when yellow and yellow-green color is added, and if you use red and orange color - you make things narrower.

When choosing a color for your garden you should bear in mind that children prefer clear and clean colors. The colors they like include red, blue and yellow. By time color preferences move to colder tones.

Get to know some associative chains incidental to colors

  • Yellow - easiness and joy, effulgence, freedom from troubles, problems and restrictions. It symbolizes warmth of the sun. Yellow color brings hope and expectation for bigger happiness in any nature. Yellow color is oriented to the future things.
  • Red means vital force, will to win, richness of existence. Red is reality. Red color is fire, hot flame, uncontrollable and wonderful.
  • Green - energetic will insistence and commitment, permanency of outlook, self-consciousness, and high personal appraisal.
  • White stands for cleanness, easiness and at the same time extensionality. White means joy, coming from past to future. White color is the color of hope and expectation of miracle.
  • Blue color means water and air, soaring at wings of hope and happiness, feeling of flying and belief in happy future.

One of the secrets of color gamut in the landscape design is that is not static but it depends on lightning and changes within a day. Morning is the time of the greatest intensively of the color, and bright sunlight of the summer day can make pastel shades fad, but it intensifies hot red and orange colors; the evening light makes colors softer, yet the summer half-light marks the white and pastel shades that start shine.

You should bear in mind that color in the landscape design is not only the color of plants. This is the color of buildings, decoration elements of the garden, and all things that makes the single garden picture. And when choosing flowers that will enjoy, you have to consider whether they match and harmonize with the cozy garden bench next to the flower-bed.

If you are not sure in the color gamma chosen, do not rush and plant flowers or paint the bench. You'd better paint pieces of cardboard paper and try the color gamma you want with the help of them. Landscape design is the work of art, and it will be pity if the harmony is lost only because of mismatched flowers.
