Fall Home Landscaping Ideas

fall home landscaping ideas

When autumn rolls around, everyone looks on in wonder as the trees erupt in a mélange of color. All over the world, fall is considered the most attractive season out of every year. It brings with it cooler weather, vibrant foliage, and of course heartwarming holidays filled with food and festivities. Homeowners have an opportunity to celebrate the season with fall home landscaping ideas.

Fall Home Landscaping Ideas

Fall is also the perfect time to give your yard and upgrade to get everyone into the seasonal spirit. If you are stuck for ideas, our fall home landscaping suggestions will help you create the perfect seasonal getaway for your whole family.

Play Up Your Foliage

If you have a lot of leafy trees in your yard, then you can focus your landscaping around their bright foliage. Mother Nature will handle most of the heavy lifting for you, simply add on some extra elements to bring your fall landscape together. Consider adding a few bales of hay around your yard for a rustic look, or even consider planting a pumpkin patch to coincide with the arrival of fall. Flowering plants with vibrant red blooms also give a nice contrast to the yellows and browns of fall leaves.

Pumpkins Passions

Nothing says fall more than pumpkins and landscaping with the gorgeous gourds is the best way to go. With Halloween and Thanksgiving so close together, you can never have too many pumpkins in your yard. Homes that are in colder areas have the added benefit of being able to enjoy pumpkins as decoration for much longer as well. For those who live in dry or very hot climates, we won’t tell anyone if you decide to use faux pumpkins instead of the fresh variety. Take the season as a step further and add wicker baskets, cornucopias, and other traditional elements to bring the look of your fall yard together.

Simple Rock Garden

For those who are not interested in elaborate fall home landscaping ideas and decor, rock gardens are the way to go. A beautiful rock garden will make any fall theme come together with minimal effort and almost no maintenance. You can choose any corner of your yard or even create a beautiful fall rock garden right in your front yard. Not only will it work for the fall, but you can update to every season with details that match your current theme. You can add flowers, flowing water, spooky or holiday embellishments, and more.

Fall Themed Patio

If you are pressed for space but still want to celebrate the season, we can help. Consider combining your front yard landscaping with a fall-themed patio. Allow the trees and shrubs in your front yard to take center stage as they light up with the colors of fall. Line the base of your patio and your trees with pumpkins, fall-colored rocks, or other elements that fit in with your color scheme. Using native plants along the borders of your home and in pots on your patio will bring the look together while giving your home a look of being kissed by nature. You can double the idea by completing the backyard in the same design.

Autumn Bounty of The Traditional Variety

The saying old is gold is never more true than when fall rolls around. Innovating with new styles and trendy decor is fine, but sometimes simple is better. Decorate your front porch in classic autumn colors, fall wreaths, pumpkins, and other classic attributes. Be generous with the reds, gold’s, and greens to get the most out of your traditional landscaping decor. This will be the perfect way to greet your guest during the holidays and beyond!

Natural Color Scheme

Not everyone has big trees on their property or even trees that have colorful leaves. That should not stop you from creating a fall landscape that fills your family with joy. Take a more natural approach by playing up the deep greens by adding hanging vine flowers and brick accents to your yard. This will make the pops of color from the flowers really stand out amongst a lush green landscape. If you have space, you can even create a pebble walkway lined with fall gourds for extra aesthetic appeal.
