Garden Design for Autumn- Colour and Texture

/, Blog/Garden Design for Autumn- Colour and Texture

Over the next two weeks I will writing about Autumn colour and tone.

Against a backdrop of fading light and yellowing leaves the colour of flowers in Autumn seems its most intense.

Also by leaving the seedheads on Phlomis italics, Globe Artichoke and Eryingium, back drop planting with majestic grasses like Miscanthus and choosing bright colourful plants like Crocosmia, Dahlias, Asters and Sedums Autumn creates its own amazing tapestry which somehow is easier to contemplate than the restless and rapid growth of a summer garden.

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.
