Repeating Elements In Garden Design

One of the simplest principles for creating an appealing garden design or yard is in matching and repeating elements. Repeating alike elements throughout the landscape helps create unity and balance. If you were at a total loss for garden design ideas, this one step alone could give you a good starting point and possibly your entire design.

This courtyard garden entry is a great example of repeated elements creating balance. Imagine the difference if these planting pots and / or plants were of different types and varieties. While the difference may not be obvious to everyone, most people would have a sense that something isn't quite right.

As well as framing the garden entry, using the same type or color of pots and plants repeatedly throughout the garden and at other entryways would help unify the entire area as well as create balance.
