5 Simple Ways to Add Color to Your Landscape

Landscaping in Dubai with color doesn’t have to be difficult, and it certainly doesn’t have to cost a fortune. Color comes from a variety of sources and can easily transform your landscape design.


By incorporating colorful accent furniture, garden art, sculptures, pots, tiles, paint and colorful plants and flowers, you can make a huge impact on the ambiance of your outdoor sanctuary.


Here are a few simple ways to you add refreshing tones and colors to your outdoor landscape and garden.


1. Choose colorful outdoor furniture.


Tables and sitting areas often create focal points in your landscape design, which makes them the perfect place to inject color. If you have a large budget, consider adding colorful tables, chairs, and end tables to your outdoor entertainment area.


For those operating on a tight budget, try trading out those old tan and brown cushions for attention-grabbing bold colors or add colorful pillows to your existing seat cushions.


Don’t miss the chance to add intrigue from the ground up by placing in a rug with a pleasing design in shades that will enhance your outdoor dining or entertainment areas.

2.  Add colorful pots and plant stands.


One of the simplest ways to conceive a more colorful garden design is to include vibrant and intriguing pots and plant stands. Adding shades of blue, orange, purple, yellow, electric pink or even red will transform your backyard into a vibrant wonderland.


This is also the perfect opportunity to create a stunning variation in color. Pairing colorful containers with plants cherished for their colorful foliage, such as hostas and succulents, is an straightforward way to create vibrant visual interest in your landscape design.

When it comes to outdoor decor, the sky’s the limit! Whether you want to add colorful stepping stones, intriguing mosaic art, or eye-catching pottery and water features.


Outdoor garden decor can withstand the extremes of the outdoor weather while simultaneously adding interest to your landscape design.


Tile comes in many different designs and colors, making it the ideal material to add color to outdoor structures such as stairs, outdoor kitchen countertops, and water features.


If you are feeling extra creative, you can even use tile to create a colorful garden mural.

5. Plants, plants and more plants!


Flowering plants provide a natural pop of color to your outdoors. Consider adding flowering plants such as Petunia, Chrysanthemums and Marigolds.


These colorful flowering plants not only add a kaleidoscopic splash of color to your outdoor garden but they also attract pollinators! You can also look beyond flowers to plants and shrubs with energetic foliage.


Many plants produce color all year with their foliage adding dramatic interest long after their flowers have wilted. Perhaps one of the easiest ways to add color to your landscape design is to include flowering plants in containers.


These miniature gardens not only enhance their surroundings, but they can also be changed out seasonally and moved to whatever area suits you at the moment.


Hanging flower baskets intensify color at higher levels and provide a great opportunity to frame a specific view from a window.
