“There is never a dull moment in the fall landscape,” says 2011 APLD Landscape Designer of the Year Suzanne Arca, APLD, ASLA, CLCA. “Although we may lose some of the plant material framework in the garden during the autumn months, we gain fall foliage color, sculptural shapes of the deciduous trees and shrubs, and the architectural details become the focal point,” says Arca.
“If a garden is pleasing to look at or walk through in autumn or winter it is usually because of the use of space--patterns created by paths or walls, shapes of plant material and the silhouettes of tree trunks and branches,” says Arca.
I could not agree more!
