How to Make Your Landscape Fit for Fall

How to Make Your Landscape Fit for Fall By Rob Biehl On September 10, 2019

Fall is a season of warm colors and is the best time to enjoy the pleasant mornings and evenings out in your garden. With the fall season approaching soon, it is a perfect time to think about how to prepare your garden for the fall.

Here are a few great ideas on how to treat your lawn and garden in the fall.

  1. Focus on Colors, Textures, and Accessories

    Your landscaping should focus more on colors, textures, and accessories. You can make a small place look more spacious by placing some small trees like Japanese maples and large shrubs in your garden.

  2. Plant a Few Evergreens

    Another idea is to plant a few evergreens in your lawn and garden. They can give a lush backdrop to your landscape and are also great for privacy. While selecting trees for your garden and lawn make sure to choose the ones that will grow to the optimum height.

  3. Mow Your Lawn to Suitable Height

    Make sure to mow your lawn until the grass stops growing. It is good to keep the grass around three inches tall, so they get enough sunlight.

  4. Plump Up the Mulch

    Fluff up the mulch in your garden up to 2 or 3 inches’ height. This will eliminate the need for more fresh mulch.

  5. Select Different Plant Shapes

    While selecting plants for the fall landscaping, practice good habits such as focusing on the full-grown shape of a plant. Some plants may have a narrow form while others may be curved. Combine differently shaped plants to bring more appeal to your yard.

  6. Consider Appealing Plant Patterns

    If you want to add a pattern to your fall garden, repeat plant shapes. Some good colorful options can include blue-green pine, blue-silver spruce, and deep green arborvitae.

  7. Rake Up the Leaves

    Make sure to rake your lawn weekly. Fallen leaves scattered in your yard can become slippery and pose a safety risk for your family and guests.
