What are some design tips for a sunny garden ?

Sunny yards

Gardeners with sunny yards certainly have a vast number of plants to choose from, but sometimes all you want is a little shade for contrast and relief. You might consider creating your own shade with structures like arbors or pergolas covered in vines or by planting trees and shrubs. These are also good elements from a design standpoint in that they provide bones for the yard. The main challenge in designing for a sunny yard is to keep things interesting. One strategy is to play up the amount of light in the yard with light colored plants. Grey leaved plants such as Lamb's ears, Lavender, and Carnations or pink Dianthus can be used to a great effect in a sunny exposure.
