ADDING COLOUR TO YOUR GARDEN DESIGN • DESIGNER EXETER • GARDENER

 

Colour is important in any garden design.  It will add interest to any garden design project.  It’s a matter of personal taste.  Bold brash colours will look great in any contemporary garden design.  Muted pastel shades work well in a prairie garden design.

 

Less is More • Colour • Garden Designer • Exeter • Gardener

Is a good idea to identify a couple of key colours.  When planting a bed.  Two or three main colours.  Will give you your bed.  More of an impact.  Also, it’s a good idea to plant in groups.  Giving your bed more of a visual impact.  

 

Red & Yellows • Work well together.  As do blue and yellows. Colour can vary from drifts of subtle shades to full-on hot colours.

 

COMBINING • COLOUR • TEXTURE • FOLIAGE • GARDEN DESIGNER EXETER • GARDENER

Once you have your colour scheme.  Why not add a little more interest to your garden design?  Combined your colours with the right textures and foliage.

 

Create An interesting Back Drop • Garden Designer Exeter

Ferns add a great backdrop to your colour scheme.  And also have interesting foliage.  Adding interest to your garden design. Creating stunning planting Combinations.  Smoke bush has dark rich foliage.  Creating a rich contrasting backdrop.  With hot colours ‘popping’ in your planting scheme.

 

PLANT SHAPES • COLOURS • GARDENER DESIGNER EXETER • GARDENER

AUTUMN COLOUR • GARDEN DESIGNER EXETER • GARDENER

WHY AUTUMN INTEREST • GARDEN DESIGNER EXETER • GARDENER

 

Summers Months • Flowering Plants • Garden Designer Exeter • Gardener

Most gardeners put all their effort into those summer months.  They are when we spend the most time in our gardens.  And the months in which a lot of coloured plants thrive.  Why not carry this colour into those dully autumn months?

 

 

BULBS • GRASSES • LEAVES • GARDEN DESIGNER EXETER • GARDENER

Some colour is available.  Autumn bulbs can be planted.  There is an emphasis on foliage and colour.  As grasses and leaves to a golden autumn brown.  They can add a backdrop to plants.  And of course evergreen plants.  Provide a green cover all year round.

 

Autumn Bulbs • Garden Designer Exeter • Gardener

Autumn bulbs include cyclamens, autumn crocuses and autumn snowflakes.  They are all small in appearance.  With delicate flowers.  They should be planted on mass.  Or in elevated containers. So they are not lost in your beds.  Planting drifts of single colours.  Or in a vibrant mix of colours. 

 

 

Autumn Plants For Colour • Garden Designer Exeter • Gardener 

There are some flowers tipping into those autumn months.  And off coarse plants with berries.  Rudbeckia straddles late winter to autumn.  Helenium just about does the same.  Asters can add some welcome colour.  Some hydrangeas can keep their flowers into autumn.  And not forgetting autumn flowering Hebes.

 

 

Autumn Plants For Folliage • Garden Designer Exeter • Gardener 

 

Grasses • Garden Designer Exeter • Gardener

Grasses will turn a rusty brown in early autumn to late winter.  Whilst many gardeners feel the need to give your grasses a haircut.  At the earliest opportunity.  Leave them as is.  They will create an interesting backdrop to your garden.  Especially in those frosty winter months.  Cut back finally in early march to encourage that new spring growth.

 

 

Autumn Foliage • Coloured • Berries Garden Designer Exeter • Gardener

Virginia creeper and the judas trees create a golden brown backdrop during those autumn months.  Pyracantha and skimmia offer some welcomed red berries.

 

Evergreen Plants For All  Year Interest • Garden Designer Exeter • Gardener 

Evergreen plants add all-year interests to your garden design.  Bambo is a firm favourite.  Add screen, movement and sound to your contemporary garden design.  They do well in containers if watered well.  In those long hot summer months.

 

Trachelospermum is a great evergreen climber.  White jasmine has a great scent.  Once established it really takes off. Bay trees work well as does box topiary.

FOCAL POINTS • GARDENER EXETER

CREATING FOCAL POINTS

Many garden designs will benefit from a strong focal point.  Adding interest to your garden design.  A great focal point can be architectural. And also achieved by clever well thought planting. 

 

Architectural Focal Points • A stone fireplace • a sculpture • a decorative fence • water feature

Plant Focal Points • Box Topiary • Speciement Planting • Raise Beds • Architectural Trees and Shrubs. 

 

 

Why Add a Focal Point To Your Garden Design?

Why should I add a focal point?  A focal point creates interest in your garden design.  Especially if it can be viewed from seating areas in the garden.  Or from vantage points in your house.  A focal point leads the eye.  Making your garden look larger.

WHY ADD PLANTS TO YOUR GARDEN DESIGN ⋅ GARDEN DESIGNER EXETER ⋅ GARDENER EXETER

 

 

Shrubs • Fast Growing • Great Value for Money ⋅ garden designer Exeter ⋅ gardener Exeter

Shrubs form the backbone of any planting scheme.  They offer great value for money.  Most are not expensive.  Choiysia, Fatsia, Acuba and Smoke bush.  Offer great value for money.

 

Most grow relatively quickly.  Why not plant smaller less expensive shrubs in the autumn months?  They will quickly grow throughout the year.  Filling out any bed.  Adding contrast, with variegated or dark foliage.  Create a backdrop and highlight colours.  Compliment your hot colours with dark foliage.

HEDGES ⋅ CLIMBERS ⋅ FERNS

 

 

Why Add Hedges To Your Garden Design • Garden Designer • Exeter • Gardener

Hedges add privacy and security to your garden design.  They can be added to simply add a boundary between your and your neighbour’s property.  Or enclose a front garden.  They do look better than a fence.  But will require maintenance and looking after.

 

 

Hedges • How Fast Will They Grow • Garden Designer • Exeter • Gardener

The rate at which your hedge grows depends on the plant.   A fast-growing hedge will give you privacy quicker.  But will ultimately require more maintenance.  A Laurel Hedge will grow fast.  But will require hard cutting back every few years.

 

 

Box • Yew • Photina Hedging • Garden Designer • Exeter • Gardener

Box looks great.  But is slow growing. If you want an established topiary.  You will have to opt for mature plants.  Again yew looks great.  But is extremely slow growing.  Photina is of great value.  Relatively fast growing.  And easy to maintain.

 

Create An Enclosed Outdoor Room • Garden Designer • Exeter • Gardener

Create an outdoor room by enclosing an area.   Add climbers to mask walls or hide tired fencing.  Creating vertical greenery.

 

 

Climbers • Garden Designer • Exeter • Gardener

Great for creating vertical greenery in your garden design.  Mask an ugly wall or soften a long run of fencing.  Climbers can be easily wired to most structures.  Once established they cover surfaces quickly.

 

 

Ferns • Garden Designer • Exeter • Gardener

Great for planting shaded areas.  Where other plants could struggle.  They love moist conditions. Plant in groups for maximum impact.  Shield ferns and tree ferns look great in an urban zen garden design.  And can be used to effectively create a focal point in any garden design.

EVERGREEN PLANTING ⋅ GARDEN DESIGNER EXETER • GARDENER

 

 

 

WHY ARE EVERGREEN PLANTS USEFUL?

Evergreen plants create greenery all year round.  If properly looked after they will give you a year of pleasure.  Forget those bare winter beds.  They can be a lifesaver.  Adding interest in those cold winter months.

 

My favourite evergreens include Skimma, with those red winter berries.   Bay standards and box balls.  And evergreen magnolia and camelia.

LOW MAINTENANCE  PLANTING 

 

 

 

WHY LOW MAINTENANCE PLANTING

Let’s be honest.  Most people want to enjoy their garden.  Rather than working on it.  By selecting the right plants for your garden design.  You can produce a relative low-maintenance garden.  Add an irrigation system.  And an artificial lawn.  Less time gardening.  And more time.  Relaxing and enjoying your self!

 

WHAT ARE LOW-MAINTENANCE PLANTS?

Tough and reliable plants for Low Maintenance Gardens.  All plants will need to be watered well for the first year.  For healthy root development.  Once established.  Low-maintenance plants will need the occasional feed.  And watering in periods of drought.  Reduce the weeds.  By adding a weed membrane and bark!

 

THINK GRASSES • GARDEN DESIGN EXETER • GARDENER

Grasses are great for a low-maintenance garden.   Grasses need minimal maintenance.  Minimal watering Remember, they don’t like water-logged conditions.  Plant grasses in groups, add hot colours and enjoy.  Leave silver foliage for autumn interest.  Cut back early spring.
