Bekkie get rid of the pampas grass for a start....it's a plant for isolation and space. It's also a thug and not nice around children (those leaves are sharp)
Not sure about the colour wheel, dove, perennials can be moved and divided to ri g the changes if things clash.
Heucheras and pinks go well together Bekkie.......out of flower the blue evergreen foliage of pinks comtrast beautifully with red/purple evergreen Heucheras. In flower too they blend.
Whites? Never put 2 different whites together....one will always outdo the other. However whites are essential for me. They never clash with anything.
Try to understand how big your geraniums might be.....some swamp everything others more restrained.
Plan now, on paper, how your plants will look, complement one another and contrast. Think of the winter scene too. Can you get some structure, even low forms....erect, upright like grasses. Libertias, Phormiums, ......over the off season?
Seems like you have sun and shade there too.......so plant accordingly. Plants actually look better when they are happy
How about a list of exactly what plants you have, what you may add and a description amd size of your border?
