Design Ideas for the Fall
Whether you love to trick-or-treat or simply want to spruce up your property, there are all sorts of ways to make the most of the fall weather. From enjoying a fire pit on the patio in the crisp November air to setting up a new path leading into the backyard, there are now more ways than ever to really dig into some fun landscaping improvements. Let’s go over a few today to spark some inspiration.
Ever think about refreshing the appearance of your trees and shrubs? It may require a professional hand to ensure everything stays healthy, but screening your views can make for some stunning vistas from your windows regardless of the time of year. Screening simply means layering the placement of foliage to create a lusher and fuller visual appearance, fleshing out your landscaping with a more natural “it’s been here the whole time and we just moved in next door” kind of look. It will make you want to go exploring!
Evergreen trees are simply stunning and can really lend a sophisticated atmosphere to your landscaping — and frankly, the more, the merrier. They’re very hardy and look great regardless of the time of year. Besides that, can you imagine what they will look like during the Christmas season, dusted with snow? These trees are very easy to maintain and care for, and they tend to last for a very long time in appropriate conditions.
Install a Fire Pit
If you want to make the most of your patio or landscaping right up until the temperature drops, a fire pit is a great investment! Perfect for get-togethers with friends, parties, and peaceful nights in the cool fall air, they add a touch of class and elegance to any home. You can find fire pits in iron, stone, and other high-quality materials, and you can even work with a professional landscaping team like us to get the job done quickly and efficiently! Always be sure to check with your local bylaws and fire regulations.
Decorative Metalwork and Accents
From intricate sculptures to hanging ornaments, adding some handmade metalwork décor or accents can make your home’s landscaping feel truly unique. From bronze and copper to steel and more, there are all sorts of materials and colours you can use in sprucing up your home’s landscaping this fall! From large-scale projects to simple little touches on a budget, it can be as convenient or affordable of a way to change your yard’s appearance as you want. Try accenting it with solar-powered lanterns to illuminate pathways and shrubbery.
