Gardening Garden Gamble! (Closes May 6th 2014)

Landscaping is the first thing we see when we look at a home, yet it is the most neglected area. If the idea of gardening is daunting and you have no clue where to even start! Then this challenge is perfect for you.

The Task
Using the same method as the Roll your Room challenge, take 3 6 sided dice (or 1 and roll it 3 times) Each number will represent a different focus, color scheme and style. See the lists below to find out what you will be doing and then post pics of your finished results!

If you cant trust yourself to stay with the numbers you rolled, we can roll the dice for you Smile

The Rules
  • Max 10 pictures per entry, including an overview. You may link to more in an album
  • Pictures may be no more then 800 pixel wide
  • State which Focus, Color Scheme and Style you rolled.
  • Have fun: Remember this is a challenge not a contest
  • The forum's Challenge & Contest Rules also apply

Remember to add Heidy in your post if you want detailed feedback on what works and what doesn't.

This challenge will close: May 6th 2014

Participation prize We are looking for a nice PP for this challenge.

The Focus:
  1. Pool
  2. BBQ
  3. Gazebo
  4. Pond
  5. Playground
  6. Fire Pit
The Color Scheme:
[Image: 2cfsd42.png]
  1. Monochromatic Colors - While it's a simple choice, a single color also can supply a garden with visual impact. In a monochromatic color scheme, you can keep all plants the same hue, or you can integrate different tones of the same shade. Plants can all be the same variety but a good way to vary the vignette is to choose plants that offer the same bloom color but mix up the foliage size and shape.
  2. Complementary Colors - One natural way to combine colors in the garden is to choose complementary colors. That means selecting plants in colors that are across from one another on the color wheel. For example, red is across from green, orange is across from blue and yellow is across from purple.
  3. Split Complimentary - This color scheme tends to give a twist to a garden. Use one color on the color wheel and then each color either side of ifs compliment. They form a narrow y shape on the color wheel. If you select green as your main color, the other two colors in a split complementary color scheme would be red-violet and red-orange.
  4. Double Complements - To add more plant and color variety to a garden, you can also employ a more complex color composition, such as a double complementary. To do that, choose two adjacent colors -- red and yellow for example -- and pick their complements across the color wheel. In that case, it's green and purple.
  5. A Triad of Colors - Another cue from the color wheel is to select colors that are spaced equally apart from one another and combine them; it's called a triad. It's a trickier arrangement to achieve, but it's one that can definitely make an impact in terms of color and visual interest.
  6. Analogous Colors - An analogous palette is also a good way to create garden color harmony. In this scheme, hues that are next to each other on the color wheel -- red and yellow, yellow and green, even fuchsia and purple mix well together.
The Style:
  1. Coastal - The natural beauty brings inspiration to the design by using mass plantings, grasses and shrubs that move freely in the ocean breeze. Coastal landscapes are meant to look natural and contribute to the overall atmosphere of life close to the sea.
  2. Modern - Modern landscaping is known for its streamlined aesthetic and sleek sophisticated style. Overall the garden will feel controlled and organized. Typically, the focus is heavier on hard scape and structures than it is on plants. Modern plants are usually green and selected for shape and texture. Pops of color are then added with furniture cushions, planters or a painted wall.
  3. Country - Country landscapes consist of areas that enhance nature and provide an intimate space for the user. Quaint, charming, and casual, this landscape becomes an extension of your home. The modern country garden style has developed into a landscape focused on dense plantings, flowers and traditional building materials.
  4. French - French garden style is still very impressive. Plant your trees in straight lines to emphasize those axial views, use hedging to border walkways and create small sized parterres. Incorporate ‘alles’ where room allows, these straight paths always lead to something significant such as a fountain or sculpture.
  5. Tropical - The most recognizable trademarks of this style are lush, tropical plants and bold colors. Think palm trees swaying in the wind, birds of paradise showing off their bright flowers and lots of healthy greenery.
  6. Japanese - There are four essential elements used in Japanese garden design: rocks, water, plants, and ornaments. When selecting and arranging these elements in your space, it's important to keep in mind the main design principles of a Japanese garden, which include asymmetry, enclosure, borrowed scenery, balance and symbolism. These principles will work together to create the proper balance in your Japanese garden.

Bridelyn: That is lovely! It looks like the most lovely little village park
I don't know if you know it, but you can find fish and frog spawners in the buydebug menu. Super handy for this kind of thing.
