Tips on designing your landscape:
  1. Less is more. Simplicity brings out the beauty of ABPs. For high rating ABPs, ABPs alone without other plants can exude grandeur much better than mixing it with other plants
  2. Layering - A landscape needs layering of plants of different heights. Choose plants that have 'crowns' of different heights for better aesthetic effects
  3. Color - Most of the time a combination of 2-3 different colors but not too many as it will make the garden look complicated
  4. Keep in mind sun tolerance of the plants. They might die if there is too much or too little of sun. Some plants that prefer shade can be shaded by plants of a higher height (layer)
  5. Other natural elements - Landscapes can be enhanced with other natural elements such as rocks, stones, sculptures, water
  6. Lighting - For magnificient night views of your landscape, use up lighting to shine focused light on your trees and shrubs
