I visited a few homes recently that our Landscape Team had the pleasure to work with on design and install last fall. It was so much fun to see the progress in just one year! The home pictured here was new construction in Canonsburg, so we started with a blank slate.
The homeowners wanted easy-care plants in a variety of colors. We chose karl foerster grass, montauk daisy, russian sage, autumn joy sedum, variegated iris, rudbeckia, pow wow white coneflower, nepeta catmint, oakleaf hydrangea, korean spice viburnum, spilled wine weigela, green mountain boxwood, mugo pine and an eastern redbud tree. What do you think?
But why fall?
There are a lot of benefits to planting this time of year. You can learn more here. There’s also something really satisfying to me about making garden edits in fall. I don’t feel as rushed as I do in the spring, when there’s so much clean-up and upfront work. Plus, it gives you even more to look forward to through winter.
So if you’re thinking, ‘I’ll wait until spring,’ I encourage you to get your ideas together now and make it happen! You’ll be so glad you did. If you want some help, schedule a Garden Coach appointment or fill out a Landscape Request Form. Also, if you have your heart set on specific plants and don’t see them in the garden center, let us know and we may be able to get them for you.
