When designing a landscape, one factor that is always considered is the interest of the garden in all four seasons. Colors have a way of affecting and changing moods. They have the ability to make us feel things. While most focus on what their garden will look like in the spring, people tend to forget what the fall and winter has to offer. There are many trees and shrubs that provide beautiful characteristics from a landscape as well. By choosing plants that have fall color you have an entirely different landscape that season that offers the reds, oranges, and yellows.
Contrary to what many may believe, fall and winter landscapes are not just limited to flowers or foliage, because there are numerous plants that offer berries and colorful bark when the seasons change. When you take the time to include both subtle and showy fall attributes, you can create a whole other experience for you to enjoy in the fall compared to what you see during the other seasons. Then, once winter or spring or summer comes along, the plants change each time, providing your landscape with endless variety.
Fall landscapes are multidimensional and serve numerous purposes. A great way to get cheerful for the holidays. Consider how your fall landscape will change with the season. Especially in New England, fall colors are one our best attributes. For many that grew up and live here, orange and red leaves are a sign of apple pie or trick-or-treating. These vibrant colors during this cooler time are a faint reminder that summer is over and winter is about to begin. The colors bring just the right amount of warmth to welcome in the holiday season.
