If you have a great tree on your property that changes colors in the fall, half the work is already done for you! Make these kinds of trees your focal point by adding a mini garden right under them. Of course, you’d have to make sure to stick with plants that will do well growing in a shaded area and plants or flowers that have those fall colors such as orange, yellow or brown. With the right plant set up, your tree will easily become the best part of your yard just in time for fall.
Create your own fall wonderland by incorporating a growing vine into a garden gate scene. These leaves on this particular vine are perfect for the fall season and it may even be the kind of vine that naturally changes colors. Adding plants to the landscape can definitely help bring in any season, but especially fall since so many plants do change colors to ring in the season. This is a simple yet elegant way to work with what you’ve got.
I’m honestly not sure if this canopy is covered with a color-changing live vine or if fall leaves were just draped over this gazebo, but it looks great! You can easily find fall leaves and vines in any home decorating store, so if you don’t have time to wait for a vine to grow and creep up a gazebo like the one depicted, you can easily add some that you find. If you do decide to use fake branches and leaves, you can also change up the scene with holly berries for the winter season.
You can’t go wrong by incorporating hay-like or long, wispy fronded plants. There’s something about that airy feel that naturally invokes the fall feeling without having to change up too much in your garden. Better yet, you can always add smaller flowering plants into the scene to give your landscape some more of that great fall foliage color. It wouldn’t hurt to add a few pumpkins here and there, too. It is fall, after all! It’s ok to have a little fun with your landscaping around this time.
This is a great landscaping idea for a backyard patio with steps. Already gorgeous and picturesque in itself, it’s really easy to add some of those smaller fall attributes to make the scene season ready. Not too many pumpkins here, but they are definitely there and add plenty of fall fun to the scene. The trees and plants incorporated in the scene add a variety of texture and color perfect for fall. The placement in this photo is perfect and is an overall great idea for a backyard.
This is such a cute idea for a walkway! Imagine all the trick-or-treaters delight while walking up this fantastically decorated walkway to pick up their treats? Using each tree as a focal point is perfect when you have a lot of space you want to decorate without wanting to decorate all of it. The trees are already natural path markers, so making individualized Halloween or fall scenes at each one is a great way to add a lot without overdoing it. I can already see the Jack-o-lanterns flickering on the night of Halloween.
As you can see, there are so many ways to decorate your house and your landscape without it getting too expensive. Now is the ideal time to start shopping for everything fall and you may even find some pretty good deals right now.
Overall, fall is a really fun holiday and whether you want to incorporate more Halloween elements into the scene or just stick with that classic autumn look, you can easily make your yard look fantastic. Natural elements always help, so stock up on pretty plants, pumpkins and vines to make everything look extraordinary!
