Garden design- colour for Autumn

/, Blog/Garden design- colour for Autumn

With the smouldering greys, bronzes, lemon yellows and red wine hues of Autumn bursts of brighter colours can flash from the garden beds well into October and November.

Here at the Prairie Gardens (see last Blog), Asters and Rudbekias shine like jewels as the days shorten. They are like Summer’s little power batteries that have been growing all year to turn on brightly just as the sun shortens its stay each day.

As well as these flowers, tall Eupatoriums with Miscanthus grass and the hot spots of Dahlias and Sedums under the Hornbeams give the garden a smoky atmosphere of faded glory.

About the Author:

In 2006 I formed Glorious Gardens, gathering together skilled practitioners to offer not just design but implementation of these designs and maintenance packages where we could look after the gardens once we had created them. Throughout my career I have designed gardens to inspire people with the heart aching beauty of nature, with shapes, colours, moods and proportions to pleasure the body and calm and delight the mind. I am also an artist who works with colour and abstract shapes and I bring this sensitivity to the 4 dimensions of a garden. I am very good at listening to clients and I’m able to draw out the essence of what a client wants for their outdoor space.
