With a new season comes new trends for autumn 2018. Here are a few landscape and garden ideas for this autumn and going into the new year:
Purple planting schemes are among our inspiration for this season with petunias being the flower of choice. They work well in containers, pots and in planting borders.
A natural extension of organic gardening – although a little more complex. Both work in harmony with nature. In summary, soil fertility is enhanced with specific, herb flower and mineral preparations and fruit and veg are grown according to the rhythms of the planets and moon.
The basic idea is that you put more into the garden than you take-out.
If you appreciate an unrefined and natural appearance then; using meadow flowers, and no-mow grasses and creating habitats for wildlife – could be they way to go. While also adding swathes of colourful plants and elegant grasses that offer a unique beauty and layers to your garden.
The use of white is being used more recently to help make houses and gardens appear larger – whether its a planter, wall or house front it’s effective.
A few future trends for 2019…
Grown-up Tree houses
These were present at this year’s Chelsea Flower Show and are set to become increasingly popular in 2019. Although a costly option, they offer a creative outdoor hideaway for adults and children alike. Whilst adding a touch of adventure, fun and creating an additional room to your home and garden.
Pleached trees are often underrated, creating outline pathways, screen views and a peaceful setting – great for sectioning garden areas. Plant in the winter and prune in winter months.
They offer warm colours in the autumn and blossom in the spring.
Coming to life in the winter months but add texture and depth all year round.
