As we head into autumn, it’s time to make the most of your landscape! While spring and summer might be the time for flowers and vegetables to shine, fall presents an excellent opportunity for a dynamic and stunning garden view that will put your neighbors wilting roses to shame.
Screen Your Views
Creating depth and mystery within your landscape is a great way to make your space seem more significant than it is. To use this trick, you will want to use dynamic features such as bold Japanese maples, to block partial views. This can help to create an illusion while also giving your home added privacy.
As you’re choosing your plants, go for options with a wide variety of heights and colors. Even if the primary palette is green, differences in hue can make a huge impact. Using different heights is another excellent method to get more plant for your space, and it helps create a stronger image.
From spiny evergreens to soft weeping maples, adding texture is a great way to create a visually appealing landscape. The texture is especially important when it comes to your hardscaping. If you’re using a smooth stone, for instance, try creating contrast with a rough-hewn natural finished piece as well.
Don’t try to have your plants do all the hard work! Adding hardscaping features like stone paths, retaining walls, and fountains are a great way to create a stunning landscape. Try using various types of stone to create a more dynamic, natural look.
One of our favorite new trends in home landscaping is the use of new types of evergreen. Despite the prevalence of only a few varietals, the evergreen family is extremely extensive. These hardy plants come in vast varieties of shapes and sizes allowing you to create great texture and diversity while maintaining color and foliage year round.
