Parterre has a specialized team dedicated to container design and planting. We work with you to develop a planting scheme to compliment your home and enhance your outdoor living experience using our Property Profile Plan, weto manage this scheme and keep a history of our work that we can refer to in the future.
There are typically four distinct seasons for which containers can be planted.
The spring season is early April to the middle of May and the plants are typically forced spring bulbs and some frost resistant trailing plants. This early season brings great pleasure to our clients, as there is often little activity in the garden and these bright colors build anticipation for the coming season.
The summer season from the middle of May to the end of August dictates heat tolerant plants. Containers are designed based upon your garden and your specific tastes and desires. Since this is a long growing season, there are occasional changes in plants to keep containers fresh and full.
Fall is a change back to cooler weather plants that will have the hardiness to last from September through November. There are many exciting choices for the fall that can keep containers colorful and interesting.
The winter season continues from December to the end of March. Cut greens, berries, fruits, colorful twigs and branches abundantly fill our client's containers through this season. Parterre works with some excellent suppliers of non-typical greens to complement the more traditional palette of material. We can create for you texturally rich arrangements that will remain attractive throughout the season.
