As the temperature gets cooler and the leaves start changing colors, fall is in full effect now. Beyond Halloween and football, autumn is a perfect time to start working on updating your landscaping. Out with the summer and in with the fall landscaping trends, here are a few to implement in your yard courtesy of Westside Professional Landscape.
Incorporating native plants
Native plants not only add beauty to your yard, but they also benefit the environment by providing habitat for local wildlife and reducing the need for pesticides and fertilizers. Some popular options for fall include goldenrod, asters, and black-eyed Susans.
Adding water features
A water feature can add a serene element to your yard, and fall is the perfect time to incorporate one. Consider a small pond, a fountain, or a birdbath to attract wildlife.
Creating outdoor fire pits
As the weather gets cooler, an outdoor fire pit can provide a cozy gathering spot for friends and family. You can either purchase a pre-made fire pit or create your own with stones or bricks.
Using fall colors
Fall is known for its vibrant colors, so why not incorporate them into your landscaping? Consider planting trees or shrubs with red, orange, or yellow foliage, or add some mums or other fall flowers to your garden.
Incorporating natural materials
Using natural materials like stone, wood, and gravel can add a rustic feel to your yard. Consider using these materials in your pathways, borders, or as accents in your garden.
By incorporating some of these fall landscaping trends into your yard, you can create a beautiful and functional space that you’ll enjoy all season long. To have them installed from our team at Westside Professional Landscape, head over to our contact page to get in touch with our team today.
