However, a lot of landscape architects and designers offer broad guidelines to make the decision easier.

Examples include:

Greys generally go well with modern structures, and greens frequently look fantastic against rural backgrounds.

Reds and oranges are viewed as more conventional colors.

Dark gray and blue hues provide depth.
