With Fall quickly approaching, it’s important to make sure you transition your lawn according to the seasonal and weather changes in your surroundings. There are many simple and cost-effective ways that you can easily transition your beautiful summer landscaping to reflect the change in season. To make this transition a bit easier, we have listed five ways you can make your lawn fall ready with a few simple adjustments.
- Transition your colorful summer flowers to reflect the colors of autumn
Deep purples, reds, oranges and yellows are all popular hues that reflect a rich, warm look for the fall. Adding in flower bushes in these warmer tones are a simple way to make your lawn stand out in the cooler months. Some beautiful options for your fall florals include Chrysanthemums, Black-Eyed Susans, Violas, Asters and many more.
- Add squashes to your fall landscaping
One of the best ways to make your landscaping fall ready is by adding pumpkins, squashes and gourds mixed in with your florals and plants. These items also add to the rich look and feel of autumn across your lawn.
- Create the perfect fall garden
Planting cabbages, rainbow chards, and kales with ornamental grasses will create a vibrant display throughout your garden. Gardens are the perfect practical addition to your outdoor space that also can provide visual interest year-round.
- Add cold weather friendly trees and shrubbery
The fall is the perfect time to plant evergreen trees as well as deciduous ornamental trees and shrubs. Lots of these items thrive in colder weather and, with the right care and attention, can continue to thrive into the winter months. The great thing about adding shrubs and trees is that they come in all shapes and sizes and can easily be positioned to fit any outdoor space, large or small.
- Plant colorful fruit trees
Fruit is a beautiful and delicious way to spruce up your fall landscaping. Many shrubs and trees provide beautiful berries like elderberries, chokeberries, and winterberries that look beautiful during the autumn months.
We hope that these ideas have given you the inspiration needed to get creative with your fall landscaping. While these adjustments can be fairly simple, it is always nice to have an extra helping hand and professional eye to put together the perfect outdoor space on any budget.
