Think about all seasons when creating a garden design


When designing a garden it is important to consider all seasons, not just spring and summer.

For example Autumn is a time of change in the garden when all of the lush and colourful planting from summer starts to die back and flowers start to fade. However this season can also bring with it its own colour palette by selecting plants for colour and interest in autumn.

  • Carpinus betulus provides gold foliage
  • Liquidambar is one of the best trees for autumn colour however check the space required
  • Acers are available in range of colours, check the PH level of your soil as they prefer acidic conditions
