1) Color
Color plays a central role in all good Houston landscape design. Color motivates and unifies your design, and it does the lion’s share of establishing the mood your work creates. Be imaginative in finding places to use color. Color doesn’t come solely from plants; your hardscape element (retaining walls, pavers, fences, etc) can contribute too. Keep the basics of Color Theory in mind when picking and combining colors. Specific color combinations are widely regarded as more harmonious and pleasing to the eye than others.

Here are the categories that relate colors together according to Color Theory:
Primary Colors: Red, Yellow, Blue
Secondary Colors: Green, Orange, Purple
Tertiary Colors: Any color created by mixing a primary color with a secondary one
Neutral Shades: White, Gray, Silver
2) Scale
The scale is how your plants and the other elements of your design relate to each other on your property.
