1. Bright Eye-Catching Color.

Perhaps the most obvious recommendation is to utilize shades of red, orange, and yellow. Switch out a few existing plants or empty spots for specimens such as Bulbine, Coreopsis, or Fire Cracker Fern as their warm color flowers catch will catch the eye and help quicly create pleasant focal points. These bold, bright hues are also perfect for directing attention away from objects you’d prefer not to directly view.

2. Coordinate with Ceramic Pots.

It sounds simple, but using an item you may already have around your patio is an economic and quick way to change the look and feel of your space. Coordinating plants with a striking foliage pattern or complementary shade of flower to that of your garden pots can bring new life to the existing item. Also, consider moving the pot to a new location where they can accentuate a garden path or liven up a dull wall. Don’t already own a few of these vital landscape elements? Head to one of Georgetown’s nursery supply stores or check out the garden section at the local home improvement store.

3. Think Big and Tall.

Having perennials and shrubs that lend a needed pop of color can be a quick and easy way to achieve a refreshed look, but as all homeowners in Georgetown know, shade is everything in the hot Texas summer. After you’ve refreshed your planting beds from below the tree line, think about adding a new shade tree that will offer complementary color of foliage at different points in the year. Texas Red Oak and Texas Red Bud have a dusty red leaf in the fall and winter months that goes great with other evergreen shrubs or low perennials such as Bottlebrush, Cotoneaster, and Bulbine.

4. Dress Up the Ground Plane.  

Don’t overlook the opportunity to add interest at ground level by bringing in a rug with a striking design in shades that will enhance your outdoor dining or seating areas. Just as is the case for adding a special rug to your indoor spaces, an outdoor rug can quickly create a pop of color and add a personal touch to any style. With Georgetown’s nearly year-round warm-to-temperate climate, homeowners should always feel enticed to use their outdoor spaces.
