Some simple landscape design ideas include creating a flagstone path and building a stone wall for raised beds. Another easy idea is to create contrasts with different flowers and shrubs, states Better Homes and Gardens.
A flagstone path is easy to create if the homeowner marks a wandering path that stays 3 feet wide and places stones about 2 to 4 inches away from each other. When creating a stone wall for a raised bed, use a layer of sand as a base and stack flat stones on top of each other next to a bed, according to HouseLogic. An example of using contrasting colors in a yard is using a dark purple plant with a bright yellow plant to make the purple look bold and the yellow look more vibrant.
