There are many things that go into creating the perfect flower bed or garden. It is important to incorporate favorite colors without leading to chaotic or empty grouping. According to the website Garden News, warm colors should be used as accents, and cool colors can promote calmness and serenity.

Warm-colored flowers, such as tulips and lilies, are used to draw attention to a specific area or line a walkway. However, using too many of these colors - which include red, orange and yellow - can make a garden look cluttered and overdone. Colors such as green, blue and purple can be used to complement the other colors, and can be spread out in vast amounts. The news source suggests that if someone spends a good deal of time in their garden at night, they should use white to brighten the area.

In addition, it may be important to build a garden starting with shrubbery then moving to the flowers. According to, several gardens do not look structured because individuals started with flowers in their design process.
