Fall is a beautiful season here in Maryland, with the leaves turning from green into bright yellows and oranges. Why not incorporate some of those beautiful warm colors into your landscaping? Fall landscaping can be beautiful, and it doesn’t have to be complicated.
Let’s look at some ways to update your landscaping for fall to increase your home’s curb appeal while also reducing your landscaping maintenance needs.
As we head into fall here in Maryland there are plenty of beautiful and fall-hardy plants you can incorporate into your landscaping. Mums are a popular option that come in a variety of beautiful fall colors and can survive the slightly cooler temperatures. Different types of evergreen trees are also a good option, such as boxwood. These bushes and trees won’t lose their color as the other plants and trees around them lose their leaves and flowers.
Refreshing your landscaping’s mulch is another great way to add some color back into your yard. Pine bark or other colored mulch can add a warm tone to your yard and make your plants stand out. Freshening mulch during the fall is a great way to prepare your flower beds for the winter as well, and ensure your plants do well as the temperatures begin to drop. Mulch can be refreshed by the homeowner or a landscaper for a big impact.
Once you have fresh mulch and some cool-weather plants, adding some simple decor items can have a huge impact on your home’s overall curb appeal. Adding things like hay bales, wreaths, or potted plants can have a help to beautify your home’s exterior. When choosing decorations, stick with a fall theme for a cohesive look.
If you want some more permanent things added to your landscaping you could consider adding some well-placed boulders or walkway pavers. Outdoor path lighting is also a great way to make your front yard shine as the days get cooler and shorter.
