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.
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 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.
