Add the wow factor to your garden this autumn!

In this week’s Successful Garden Design quick tips video we look at different ways to plant grasses effectively in the garden…

Grouping grasses coming up in drifts throughout the other plants is a great way to incorporate grasses into the garden.

Planting grasses this way helps highlight the striking colours of the autumn-flowering, purple Asters, and the burgundy coloured Sedum, providing contrast and softness with texture.

You can also plant in straight rows if your garden has lots of linear elements like hedges and paths. The grasses again act as highlighters to the elements that are already in the garden.

This week we take a look at how to lessen the impact of being overlooked by lots of buildings and creating a lovely garden!

A quiet peaceful space can still be created in a very overlooked garden. The height of the trees helps take they eyes away from the buildings.

You don’t have to use palm trees to create this effect. Any tree that is suitable for your size and location will also work. Birch trees (Betula) and Sorbus aria Lutescens are great choices for small space gardens.

If your garden is very small and can’t accommodate a tree, the non-invasive bamboos like the black stemmed variety can also provide plenty of vertical interest.
