As the season changes and the warm weather begins to cool, it’s easy to assume that your property will lose the beauty and color that summer and spring are known for. After all, those summer flowers aren’t going to make it through the cold.
But with the help of your landscaping professional, you can still get some great colors for your property even during the fall. Thanks to things like mums, pansies, and even cabbages, you can give your property a great look filled with color even during the fall months.
But when you add the right plants for the fall, you give your property a big boost of color. This can help your property look much better and make it easier to enjoy coming home. Your neighbors or passersby will see your property and enjoy the colors, and you’ll have a better sense of pride when you look at your lawn. In short, adding those fall colors is more important than you might think.
To give your property a big burst of color, the first step is figuring out just where it needs to go. Adding the right colors is important, but so is adding those colors in the right places. The easy answer here is to add colors to places that will make the most impact on your property. This means the areas that are seen first or seen the most prominently. Some of the best places to add colors include:
•Entrances to apartments or your own driveway
•Outdoor seating areas, such as around decks or gazebos
•Flanking the doors of office buildings
•Along the curb
•Flower beds around the front perimeter of your home or office
Believe it or not, fall offers you more colors than you might realize. From oranges to yellows to burgundy to rich purples, you’ll have plenty of options to choose from. For companies, trying to choose company brand colors is a good idea. For homeowners, matching up colors with the color of your home is a good idea.
There are plenty of plants to choose from, too. Here are some of the options:
•Pansies and Violas
Available in a wide range of colors, these flowers are great for boosting the fall color show.
Let hardy ivy spill over planters or elevated beds to give rich bursts of green and other colors.
Mums bring huge color and a rich texture to any property, and are available in many different colors.
•Cabbage and Kale
Ornamental cabbages and kale can add unique looks to a property and can give you an increase in color as well.
The bottom line is simple – work with your landscaper and you’ll be able to choose the colors and the plants that you want to ensure your property looks great throughout the fall and into the winter months.
