Now that Halloween has past, it is time to take down those scary witches, spooky ghosts, and creepy monsters, and prepare your front yard for Thanksgiving. Fall is such a perfect time for deep reds, brilliant oranges, and vibrant yellows. The crisp weather makes it the perfect time for adding a warm and rustic feel into your landscaping.
Your front yard will feel warm and welcoming with some of these colorful decor ideas.
1. Fall Foliage Wreath
A warm fall foliage wreath makes your front door so welcoming, and it is very easy to do with a simple foam wreath and some fabric fall leaves. Simply glue and abundance of these leaves onto the wreath and hang it onto your door.
2. Pumpkins in the Landscaping
This brilliant orange squash looks great anywhere in your front yard. Place a few there on your front steps or along your front walkway. Brighten up some of your flower beds by interspersing them among your flowers.
3. Dried Corn
Dried corn and corn stalks are very versatile when it comes to outdoor decor. Have fun creating your own decor with bunches of dried corn or corn husks. Many people take large corn stalks to create beautiful columns around the door frame.
4. Seasonal Planting & Landscaping
Just because spring and summer are over does not mean that you can’t have some flowers in your front yard. There are many different types of flowers that are perfect for planting in the fall. Talk to your landscaper about which flowers are best for the Houston climate in order to find the perfect blooms will keep your yard full and lush.
5. Change Up Some of the Furniture
We know that you want to enjoy your front yard throughout the fall, but your outdoor furniture is likely more suited for spring and summer. Consider repainting your furniture to a fall color, or just getting some fall colored cushions or pillows to make your furniture more suitable for fall.
6. Light It Up!
With the sun going down earlier and earlier, string lights can bring some real brightness into your front yard. Hang them along your porch or along your fence. Consider using globe lights instead of “twinkle lights”. Globe lights will give your front yard a rustic feel that is perfect for fall. You can enjoy the crisp fall evenings with the warmth of lights throughout your front yard.
This is a time of the year when we are supposed to be thankful for the things that we have and the people in our lives. Celebrate the season with some bright fall decor. Your front yard should always be welcoming and a place that you, your family, and your friends can enjoy. Talk to your landscaper about some landscaping design ideas to add a little more beauty into your front yard throughout the season. You should also talk to your landscaper about making sure that your lawn is prepared for the winter. Have fun decorating your front yard and enjoy it when you are finished.
