Splashes of Colour to Make Your August Awesome


The Covid-19 situation has had a dramatic effect on all of us in recent months, changing the way we interact, the way we work and the way we socialise. For many, it’s been a bleak period, one that has brought very little in the way of pleasure. For those who work in garden design, however, it’s been relatively easy to carry out our work duties without having to compromise on the need to socially distance.


Perhaps now more than ever, bringing some colour into outdoor spaces is of paramount importance. As we move from July into August, it seems almost inconceivable that we’re contemplating the shorter days and the more unpredictable weather, but in a few short weeks it will be September once again.


August is an interesting month for us. When it comes to garden design Perth home owners know there are some plants and flowers that truly come into their own. They include dahlias, originally native to Mexico and a number of Central American nations, but now found all over the world. They come in a wide range of varieties, and always thrive in sunny positions.

The clematis viticella is at its best in July and August.  It loves to climb on walls and outdoor buildings, and it’s been adorning outdoor spaces across Europe for many centuries. When it peaks, it offers a vibrant display of purple or violet-blue which usually stays until early autumn.


A number of garden designers in Scotland like to add splashes of helenium in August, and it’s easy to see why. There’s a range of varieties to choose from, including some that are more commonly known as sneezeweed. The Wesergold variety show golden flowers that look similar to daisies forming in sizable clumps. As an added bonus, they can thrive in a number of different soil types.
