Adding a little Autumn Interest in the Landscape

The autumn season is a beautiful time in Colorado. From the changing of the leaves to the slight chill in the air, Fall is great time to get started on a few landscaping projects. One project in particular is including a variety of non-flowering plants in your landscape. Here are three great non-flowering plants, courtesy of ALCC:

1. Sedum Choosing sedum in different shapes and sizes will offer your landscape interesting foliage and texture amid the more showy blooming plants.

2. Ornamental kale This is a great fall plant because it works well as a mounding plant in containers. You can plant it in pots between groups of spill-over Plenti-fall petunias.

 3. Grasses Reminding us of fall grains, grasses of differing shapes and colors are very effective in creating autumn ambience. Grasses can add interest to your planting beds as well as be the tall focal point in containers.

Just make sure that when you do add new fall plants to your beds or containers, you give them adequate water right after planting. If you need a professional landscaping contractor to get your Denver or Boulder area landscape looking its best this fall season, contact Lifescape Associates at 303-831-8310.
