With the leaves changing colour and the temperatures starting to drop, it’s easy to tell that fall is on its way! Fall is an exciting time for amateur green thumbs and professional gardeners alike. There are many beautiful flower displays possible for the fall season and such a variety of ways to display to bring the outdoors to life. Here are some tips on how to design and maintain amazing flower planter displays this fall:
Pumpkins make the greatest addition to any fall backdrop. They instantly bring about the feeling of Thanksgiving and Halloween and provide an excellent colour splash for your garden. Put pumpkins of all sizes as a sidecar to your fall planters and you will love the results!
Mum is definitely the word this fall. With some rustic looking planters and some vibrant red mums on display on your front porch, you will have a front yard worthy of home and garden magazine.
Make a Mumkin!
Combine the beauty of the pumpkin and the beauty of the mums and make a mumkin! Carve out a pumpkin and make it act as the planter for the mums. The contrasting colours will be so stunning, you will feel like a professional gardener.
Get creative with your planters and don’t be afraid to have many different colours displayed. Fall is the most beautiful time of year and should be showcased with amazing colour combinations!
Window Flower Box
If it’s possible to have hanging plants in front of a window add some fall fun to your house by planting beautiful pansies or violas in your window flower box. It’s especially nice to have something such as English Ivy flowing over the sides of the flower box for that extra bit of charm.
The More Planters, the Merrier
If you have steps leading up to your house, or areas in your front lawn that would nicely house a planter, then by all means put a planter there! The more planters you have located on your property the more likely you are to actually plant something in them. Don’t forget to add different sizes of pumpkins beside your planters as the extra bit of colour and fall essence!
There are many ways you can decorate your garden to celebrate the beauty of the fall season. Have some fun with different planters and give your house a colour splash that will make the statement that fall is the most beautiful time of year.
