The trick to color and texture and layers is by use of perennials.

This is one area many landscaper contractors fail miserably. A well done landscape will almost always include perennials. Making perennials compliment one another is the key. And picking perennials so you always have color rotating throughout the year is another component of perennial use/selection.

Thanks perfectearth!

DVS, thanks for the information. I am zone 9b so my options for perrenials are pretty much lavender, sage, grasses, etc. Those have pretty much what I have been looking at. Any suggestions would be great. Thanks again
