Just because the weather is turning grey, it doesn’t mean your home has to go grey too. Make your business or home look bright and inviting with these fall landscape design tricks!

Make Your Mulch Sing!

Mulch is a superhero for your plants. It provides extra warmth for your soil, protects against frost, and even fights off disease. Mulch also comes in a wide range of colors, so it is the perfect way to add color to drab autumn landscapes. Choose dark mulches to make bright colors pop or choose brightly colored mulches against evergreens. Talk to your trusted landscapers in Westchester County, NY, to help you create a design you’ll love. 

Go For the Gusto with Ornamentals!

Texture and vibrant shades of color are great additions to any landscape. Luckily, ornamental grasses and shrubs pack a double punch of drama to dull landscapes. These incredible plants also help defend your home and soil against erosion issues. Consider options like:

custom flower beds with rocks and mulch
  • Indian Grass
  • Blue Fescue
  • Tufted Hairgrass
  • White Sage
  • Boxwoods
  • Ilex 
  • Switch Grass 

Invest in Evergreens and Tree Installations

The slightly warmer soil temperatures and cooler days of fall are the perfect time for installing trees in your design. Trees also provide a barrier against the harsh wind and weather of winter. When you choose an evergreen installation, you also get incredible, vibrant colors season after season. Some of our favorite evergreens include:

  • Japanese Cedar
  • Douglas Fir
  • Blue Spruce
  • Douglas Fir
  • Balsam Fir
  • Boxwood Trees

Mums, Mums, Mums

Fall isn’t the same without bunches of beautiful, bright mums. You can add some outdoor planters on your stoop for a quick transformation. Another option is adding alternating rows of your favorite colored mums in your garden for fresh blooms through fall. 

Play with Harvest Displays

Just in time for the fall holidays, consider putting in a fun harvest display. You can design one yourself or talk to an expert landscape design in Westchester County, NY. Think about adding some of these touches to your display:

  • Wheat
  • Cornucopias
  • Indian Corn
  • Autumn Leaves
  • Berries
  • Haybales
  • Autumn Leaves
