Kermit was wrong *

Back in my garden design days, clients would often request "colour".  

"Green is a colour," I'd say and they thought I was joking. But I wasn't. Green is often overlooked as a "colour".

But there's different qualities of green too.

The luminous green of thin leaves backlit by the sun is very restful and well worth factoring into your decision-making process when choosing street trees - especially for inner city areas where the contrast with all the grey is particularly pleasing**.
* Initially at least ;)

** To see what I mean, click on the photo and see how well the luminous green goes with the grey granite behind. Nice, huh?
