Garden Design for Autumn- Using Colour and Texture

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

With Spring bulbs and Summer flowering shrubs making sure those seasons work in the garden, designing for Autumn needs to be subtle and draw upon not just colour but textural and tonal contrasts.

This first picture below I took in West Sussex at Petworth house. A very good hot coloured combination as the weather gets cooler.

The Cardoon, purple Asters and Miscanthus grass is one of my favourite combinations for a late Autumn border, majestic and detailed.

Sedums and silver Artemesia provide a vivid backdrop for the sultry coloured Chocolate Cosmos

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.
