(H1) Panel Builder 66/33% Layout
This page uses a 66/33% panel builder with no background
Nested within that left-column is a 100% panel with background
Having content in it's own panel gives better visual separation
Nesting panels allows for greater control of content including alignment and discreet background combinations, ultimatley giving you more options for grouping like-content.
Another layout technique is stacking panels, which when used with backgrounds, assists in visually separating topics. Be aware that some components have native backgrounds (e.g. Feature Box, Flip Panel, Block List) that don the same effect.
Place less important info. further down the page, "below the fold"
