Plant fall-blooming flowers and shrubs
There are plenty of options for a bountiful yard of flowers, shrubs, and trees during the fall season. Here’s a quick selection of fall dwelling plants that will add color, warm scents, and variety:
Perennial sunflowers give your lawn a punch of bright yellow amid warmer shades of orange and red.
Asters can add an element of surprise to your property, coming in colorful shades like purple and pink.
Smoke bush provides a rich, gorgeous contrast to brighter blooms in the garden.
Witch hazel can give off a citrus-y scent and sprouts fall colored leaves for your lawn.
Sumac creates a sea of luscious red over your property, perfect for an autumnal spread.
Maintain a fall garden
As temperatures lower but soil stays warm, planting a fall garden remains a fabulous option for adding color, produce, and landscaping fun to your home. Vegetables with a shorter harvest period are a great option during the season. Veggies like spinach and swiss chard can mature in as early as 45-55 days, making them an excellent choice to start growing now.
