There are so many signs of the seasons changing, from the temperature drop, to the holiday season rolling around. Loved by all, the fall is a great time to think about your landscaping. As decorations come out, and fall festivities begin, people begin to spend their last time outdoors before the harsh winter takes hold. Using this time in the fall as effectively as is possible is paramount to the success of your landscape in the fall. You want to draw the attention of the entire community with the beauty of your property, so you will need to get creative with your landscaping. Beyond pumpkins and Halloween decorations, your landscape needs some unique attention. With plenty of ideas ripe for the season, you will have no trouble making your property the talk of the town. Here are some fall landscaping ideas to impress your neighbors.
Keep Color Coordination in Mind
It may seem obvious that the addition of fall color is a good idea, but it can be done in a more creative way. Firstly, if you want to add fall flowers in a simple way, containers are a great way to spread it out with little cost. Additionally, work with your landscaper to layer your plants, and contrast different autumn colors. Integrate these plants with larger plant material for structure, such as trees and shrubs. When you have these larger pieces of plant material, it becomes easy to accent with fall flowers.
Add Great Groundcover
An easy way to add some greenery to your landscape is to cover unsightly areas with a thick groundcover. Many varieties can be found with blooms in fall colors, such as red, orange, yellow, or purple. On top of looking good in your yard, groundcover can also be functionally beneficial, preventing weed growth. They are also extremely low maintenance, and reduce the possibility of soil erosion. Get groundcover, and see an easy improvement in the look of your landscape.
Raised Bed Garden in the Fall
For a more creative combination of both hardscaping and plant installation, consider the addition of a raised bed garden. This is a rectangular retaining wall, with a plant bed installed on top. Use this platform to install a variety of fall plants, as well as fall focused accents, such as pumpkins and feathergrass. View it as a long-term investment, as even after the fall has passed, it can be utilized as a location to rotate seasonal decor. Sure to impress your neighbors, this is a creative addition to any landscape.
Mulch Installation: Simple Decision
Having beat on this for a significant amount of time, we will continue. There are so many undisputed benefits of organic mulch, as it keeps weeds out, and nutrients in. It is also a very inexpensive investment for the price and durability, as it only needs to be replaced once every year or two. Maintain the moisture in your soil, deter animals from screwing with your garden, and generally improve the quality of your landscape with a mulch installation.
