Nick Besser, a landscape architect for Hilliard-based Ripenhoff Landscape, said a key to a successful backyard garden is for it to “have its own entity.” Besser said his design will use an evergreen foundation with mums and Black-eyed Susan “to enhance fall color. “There are quite a few options for fall color,” said Besser, adding that he will decide the final touches to his display just before the show. “I’m going to keep it simple; it will focus on rustic tones,” along with hydrangeas and grasses, Besser said. The display will utilize an overhead wood arbor to create a canopy. “The walls will be plantings,” and enhanced with other colors, Besser said.

“We want you to envision it in your own backyard,” Santina Castorano, a landscape designer for Wood Landscape Services, said about the design she will display at the show. Wood Landscape Services does not have a retail site. Castorano said she focused on including a “fall punch” in her design, which includes a variety of hydrangeas and late-blooming perennials. A pergola is at the center of the Castorano’s design. “I worked on creating divisions of space (but) also want it to have a focus.” Castorano said that decision will be among the last made, but that a piece of artwork will be included. “I want art as something focal, something that can be viewed, too, while enjoying the fall colors in the garden,” Castorano said. Perennials, hydrangeas and ornamental grasses will occupy much of the garden with other touches as well, Castorano said. “The goal is to keep it interesting as the season changes.”
