A Bit Out of the Ordinary

Our image of Magnolia ‘Elizabeth’ and Michael Porter’s quote offer a simple reminder on this wordless Wednesday. “Strategy is about making choices, trade-offs; it's about deliberately choosing to be different.” If you didn’t have a chance to read yesterday’s post, you may want to take a quick peek about color sequencing. Today’s tip: when choosing material for your garden, running the gamut from softscape to hardscape, try Porter’s strategy: deliberately choose to be different. Delving into color sequencing requires stepping away from standard materials. So try soft yellow when your heart is set on the standard white or pink. Don’t be afraid to be a bit out of the ordinary. It sets you apart from the pack.
