Abstract

Plants, which play an important role in landscape designs, show sensory effects on people with their functionality and appeal to the senses within the scope of their characteristics. The seasonal characteristics (flower, leaf, fruit, stem, branch-shoot coloring), textures, forms and fragrances of the plants used in planting design are taken into consideration. Among these features, the color effect is the most striking visual feature of a plant. Colors are one of the most determining elements people use in recognizing, introducing and reporting objects and events. This study, it is aimed to create a visual effect throughout the year by examining the colors of flowers, leaves, fruits, stems, branches and shoots of plants. Color characteristics of plants suitable for the Bursa province climate were investigated. Planting design examples that have a visual impact throughout the year were created with suitable plants. Planting designs are collected under two different headings as monochrome and polychrome arrangements. Using AutoCAD and Photoshop programs, the plans of planting design samples were drawn, the status of the color features in the plants according to the months was given and the appearances of the samples were created. As a result of the research, the applicability of the emerging planting designs will set an example in the creation of spaces with color effects throughout the year.
