PLANT ASSOCIATIONS: Autumn

I like to explore colour palettes and find colour harmony and contrast. Within a monotone scheme I look for the tones and hues of colour. Colour should be overlaid with texture.
Tidy naturalistic planting design is impactful when set into garden architecture: a prairie look can be both 'country' or 'contemporary'. Changing seasonal interest needs to be interwoven into a planting plan. And a designed garden needs to evolve so it seems as though it has been there 'forever'.
Light and drama are both important: Back lit grasses; trees that change colour with the seasons. Seeing where the sun sets and rises is important not only visually but also for the plants well-being, just as the site ecology is. The right plant for the right place.
Gardens are meditative, contemplative spaces; their beauty gives pleasure and rejuvenates the spirit.
