Should all borders be planted with rows of shrubs stepping up?

Shrub border-variation of planting pattern

If you would like to give variety to the usual step up pattern when planting a shrub border, the “rows” may be varied by plantings of slightly higher or lower shrubs, varied in quantity — say 5, 7, 11 -- thus giving a kind of undulating or 3-dimensional effect from different viewpoints. You will avoid the monotony of rigid height regulation planting this way.
