The Season for Fall Displays: Landscape Design Advice
October 26th, 2017 | By: Heather Knapp | Blog
The landscapes across the east coast are transforming. This time of year we are always captivated by the changing colors around us. With the warmer weather we have had this month, some changes in foliage are delayed. While mother nature takes care of dressing up much of the landscape for fall, homeowners are always looking for ways to do the same to their home. Installing fall displays is a popular trend this time season. Every year, we work with many of our clients to customize impressive displays for their home.
Tips for dressing up your home with fall displays
- This season has a full selection of festive items to choose from
- Pumpkins, mums, hay, gourds
- Many of these items are inexpensive
- Can survive cooler temperatures and frosts
- Use plenty of autumnal items to add color and interest, mix and match, the more the better
- Dress your front steps and entry ways into your home for curb appeal
- Painting pumpkins is an easy way to complement the colors to your home
- Planting mums in planting beds, over spring bulbs helps to keep color in the yard
- Update planters on property with mums and greenery
Whether you prefer to DIY, or hire a professional, fall displays are a creative and appealing addition to any home this time of year. Fall is always so fleeting. Take the time to admire the colors and the crisp evening and mornings, and warmer afternoons. This time of year is one that many try to capture. Fall displays help to enhance the beauty of this time of year. These displays are great for anytime from September through Thanksgiving and can last longer than summer or spring plants and flowers. And whether or not you choose to decorate your home for Halloween, with added spooky elements, such as ghosts, witches and decor, your home becomes a big hit for trick-or-treating. Night lighting enhances your displays, as the evenings begin to fall earlier this season. Illuminate your front walkway and steps, not only for safety, but to show off the displays. As the weather get cooler, the warm colors and lighting give your home the warmer and inviting glow. Scenic Landscaping provides a Maintenance, Custom Garden Service and Enhancement Division
