Autumn wouldn't be the same if it wasn't for what the mother nature brings during the season. You know how each season has something in particular but this season definitely stands out from the others. It's the only season in which the leaves turn colours and softly fall off of the trees throughout the weeks, and the landscape these trees make with all the leaves turning in yellow, orange and red tones is very breath-taking. Every autumn lover should have a special love towards gardening, specially when owning your very own garden. An autumn garden wouldn't be considered autumnal enough if you do not have any of the following items related to it. Did you know that there are certain autumn trees and plants that stay in the same way all year round? That's right! You don't have to worry about whether or not they will just die within a week after autumn is gone, not at all. These trees remain the same forever as long as you take care of them. Sit back, grab a pen and start taking notes about the best autumn-looking gardening items and what you have to do to take care of them!
1. Autumnal Bonsai
This miniature tree is definitely one of the most beautiful trees out there. There is no way that you can find a tree to compete with it. From the beautiful dark-ish red found in the trunk and branches to the grown and long autumn leaves, this is definitely my favorite tree. It's said that these miniature trees grow in different containers but what this bonsai has in particular is that it's grown and raised in the land, unlikely most of them that are grown in containers as I previously said. With that being said, you can place this bonsai wherever you want because it doesn't really need a pot. As long as the tree is in contact with the sun once a day is enough to let it grow. It doesn't even need water so you don't need to worry about that! Listen up, autumn collectors, your garden can't be considered autumnal if you do not have a bonsai.
2. Apricot Baubletop
Nothing can really beat this unique apricot tree. As you can clearly see, this tree holds an amazing autumn-inspired color pattern that you won't really find in any other tree. It's gradient goes from the bright, shiny orange to the wonderful, deep red tones. A garden without this Apricor Baubletop wouldn't really be completed. The simple yet mesmerazing colors make every other flower in the garden blend with each other. This is also a great tree to have in the outside of the garden, as if the trees were fencing and protecting anything from the outside. When the light goes through each orange and red leaf, you can truly experience an autumnal aurora borealis.
3. Amber Cloud
Don't get tricked, because while this Amber tree might not be an actual cloud, it does indeed fullfill its purpose. These amazing trees are thin and grow really tall throughout the season. At its peek time, the Amber Clouds reach the sky with their fantastic golden-ish yellow leaves, which will later become the actual clouds. Clouds that while they might not be in the sky itself, the branches make it so they look they are just hanging over there. When you look up, you won't really see a clean blue sky, but in reality you will appreciate the amazing yellow vibe you get from these trees.
4. Fall Planter
You were given the tough task of decorating your garden or even the outside of your house. While it might seem hard to find the perfect autumn related, potted flowers, fear no longer! The Fall Planter is basically what any autumn gardener needs. The come in different sizes, but this medium-sized fall planter is just perfect to light up your garden or the entrance of your autumn abode. The pot itself was very well decorated, as it carries an well-detailed pattern that does the perfect job to represent what this season truly is about. Nonetheless, the flowers these planters come with are amazing. The small red bushes help give some contrast to all the beautiful orange and red colors you can already see in your garden. The wind magically blows and moves those fantastically well done sticks full of berries dance with breeze.
5. Autumn Birch Tree
What other great color would be just perfect to match this season with if it's not the outstanding birch pattern in this Autumn Birch Trees? These trees are very very tall, and while you may not get as many leaves, these trees provides you with a nearly infinite birch branches that will make your garden stand out from the others. We suggest to have them planted in the outside of the harden, bordering the other smaller trees you may already have, as they can grow tall in such a short period of time. These trees don't require too much water, however it's highly recommended to trim the branches from time to time.
Special item: Autumn Pond
Have you ever gone on an evening walk to the park during November, while all the leaves seem to have fallen off of the branches, covering the paths and everything ahead of you? Then you stopped for a few minutes to appreciate that beautiful pond, full of autumn leaves that seem to be stuck in the water, creating a kaleidoscope-like design with the reflection of the water. Look no further, because now you can have a piece of said pond in your very own garden. This Autumn Pond simply resembles what its name says. It will add that extra detail to fully complete with all the work you've put in creating your autumn garden. It comes with a few stones that seemed to have turned brown due to the pigmentation of each leaf, which resulted in an amazing detail every pond should be able to achieve during this season.
