Fall Landscaping: The Beautiful Blend of Ornamental and Useful Plants for Early Fall

As September ushers in the early days of fall, your garden begins to undergo a subtle transformation. While you may have enjoyed the vibrant blooms of summer, there’s something equally enchanting about the shift in colors and flavors that autumn brings. In this season of transition, we invite you to explore the world of fall landscaping, where beauty and utility merge seamlessly.

The Aesthetics of Plants in Early Fall

As summer winds down, the allure of vegetables in your garden becomes even more captivating. Early to mid-autumn is an excellent time to introduce leafy greens, such as kale, spinach, or other greens, as well as colorful plants and shrubs like hydrangeas or pansies into your landscape. Their vibrant hues can add a captivating layer of color. Imagine these colors intermingling with the changing foliage of surrounding trees. Planting your own vegetables not only enhance the look of your yard, but also gives you healthy food to prepare meals.

Fall Ideas and Preparation for Winter

Early fall is a time to add additional features in your landscape. Fire pits become a popular activity for families as the temperatures at night start to cool down along with pergolas. It’s also wise to prepare your garden for the coming winter. Start by mulching, protecting plants from impending frost, and planning for cold-weather crops to extend your garden’s productivity into the cooler months.
