Hi guys, what color do you think I should paint the back small wall of my pond?

I think I'd paint it the dark charcoal color of your back fence.

Bright bright fuschia pink or deep aubergine - both colours work well with the green you have planted in front of it, and it will draw the eye to the mid point in your garden. In the picture, the eye is drawn to the bush in the neighbour's garden. You can stop it.

Whoa!! I was going to suggest a boring old sand colour or a grey blue before I saw your pink ASV. Do you think it will have as much impact when it doesn't have much height???

Hi Roo, pretty sure - I believe if you can't disguise, make it a feature!!!
The colour hasn't rendered as I drew it though - the pink is a little less neon but bright nevertheless. It needs that matt feel to it to make it work.

Oh, my motto exactly. I was looking at the plants in the background, not sure if they might be cordylines??? Picking up the brighter shade of them would be good.

Not fair when you can cheat with fancy computer programmes!!!!

As the appearance of the garden has a modernist style with the straight lines and concrete furniture how about a Mondrian influence and add a bold strip of blue? It is a pond and with the right shade it could look really relaxed and contemporary. My daughter's suggestion is a chalky lilac!

Oh I forgot to say a yellow would look great as long as you keep it to the right shade, basically a primary colour muted to suit your taste.

I have had a low garden wall in a dark pink, it makes greens more vibrant. We loved living with it.
