Bespoke Garden Maintenance and Garden Design in Croydon

Based in Warlingham just 5 miles from Croydon, Jones Landscape Gardening offer bespoke garden design and garden maintenance services. We have been operating as a professional landscaper for many years and boast over three decades of experience in garden design and maintenance. We see design trends changing not only from year to year, but from season to season. In this blog post we’re looking at design ideas and maintenance tips for Autumn.


Autumn 2017 Garden Design Ideas

During the Autumn months, garden design trends move to capturing the alluring colours and rustic charm of the season. We love playing with colourful Autumn borders, planting bright flowers and tawny grasses. As part of our garden maintenance services in Croydon, we can also keep your garden design looking fantastic throughout Autumn and the rest of the year.


Why not try some of our following garden design ideas?


Capture the colour of Autumn – Have a flower border planted with Autumn-flowering bulbs such as Crocus, Dahlia, Nerine, Sternbergia and Snowdrop, many of which will last into the first Winter frosts.


Install a nest box - Although birds do not hibernate, they need a lot of energy to keep themselves warm at night and nest boxes give them the perfect place to take shelter as the colder nights draw in.


Integrate garden lighting - As specialists in garden design and garden maintenance in Croydon, we know how to install and maintain beautiful lighting, which can be as subtle or bold as you like. Fairy lights and lanterns work well, especially around Halloween.


Pot chrysanthemums - Chrysanthemums are a popular Autumn flower and are available in various colours. The first winter frost will kill them off, but you can bring them inside to an unheated area such as a conservatory to last a few more weeks when potted.


Autumn Garden Maintenance Tips

Autumn is an important season for many gardeners in Croydon and throughout the UK, with planning required to prepare your garden for the winter months. At Jones Landscape Gardening, we provide expert garden maintenance services for customers and advice for anyone wanting to carry on their own maintenance.


Here are some of our top tips:

  • Dig up annual flowers that are going to struggle in the winter months and use them for compost
  • Add fertiliser to your Croydon lawn to give it a boost with added nutrients before the colder, winter season begins
  • Cut back flowers such as Perennials that thrive in the colder months to stop them from taking over your garden
  • Clear up fallen leaves and add them to your compost or keep them in a pile in a corner, as shelter for hedgehogs and other wildlife
  • De-weed your garden and patios to get them under control before winter, or you could end up with weeds everywhere come Spring
