The ideal landscape blends color, shape, and texture together to create a vista that’s visually appealing. When done correctly, everything blends together to create a seamless landscape that looks marvelous beneath the summer skies.
While having a seamless backdrop is nice, it can be rather dull and boring. Thus, you will want to insert a focal point or two. Focal points draw the attention of the eye and set the imagination to wonder. Your focal point can be anything from a fountain to a statue, or even a large, colorful bush that stands out above the green of the lawn.
The purpose of any focal point is to highlight your personal sense of style and your preference for the things you find appealing. You can be as clever and creative as you’d like, or keep it as plain and simple as you desire. As long as it attracts the attention of your guests, then your focal point will accomplish what it has been placed to do.
