Top 5 Autumn Garden Ideas in Cheltenham
Many feel that spring/ summer is the optimum time to enjoy the outdoor space.
But Autumn can also be a great time to get out in the garden and experiment with new ideas.
In this blog post, we have collated our top 5 gardening ideas to keep you busy throughout the later months.
Our top 5 autumn ideas include;
- Play with natural light
- Focus on structure
- Use repetition
- Plant flowers and shrubs
- Create planters
Use natural light to create space
The sunlight can be a great way to enhance your garden and create the illusion of space. Use natural light to enhance the colour of winter plants and illuminate places in the garden. You can enhance natural light by painting walls white and introducing mirrors. This should make your garden much brighter and increase the amount of time the sun stays in your garden over the winter months.
Focus on structure within your garden
The autumn and winter months can be a great time to prune back large trees and shrubbery that are growing in your garden. Pruning your trees and shrubbery during the winter months is not only a great way to tidy up your garden in preparation for summer, but is also better for the health of your trees.
If you’re thinking of trimming your trees during this time, it is advised to use a qualified tree surgeon who can cut your trees safely and to the correct standard.
Use elements of repetition
Less is certainly more when it comes to winter gardening, but that doesn’t mean you can’t experiment with different styles. For those wanting to create a more layered feel to their winter garden, try using the same plants but in different areas of the garden.
This will add an element of dimension to your outdoor space as well as provide a sense of creative direction. This can also be a good way to cover up areas of your garden that are looking a little shabby.
Plant flowers and shrubs
If you want to brighten up your garden during the winter, you may want to consider planting winter plants and shrubs.
You may be surprised to find that there are a variety of colourful perennials on the market, which can be a cheap and effective way to renovate your outdoor space over the cooler period. For plant inspiration, visit the Gardeners World website to browse a range of winter plants.
Create fall planters
For those that have small gardens or those looking to improve the aesthetic of their outdoor space, winter planters are a great way to introduce colour into the garden as well as keeping it neat and tidy.
There are a variety of ways that you can create fall planters, so get creative and experiment with different ideas. For those in need of a little more inspiration, visit Better Homes & Gardens for more ideas for your winter planter.
