4 Curb Appeal Tips for Fall Landscapes

Return to the Blog Home Page

As Summer gives way to Fall it’s a wonderful time of year to live in Atlanta. While the seasons are busy changing, you can change your aesthetics too by revisiting those tired flower beds around the home filled with summer’s dying blooms. Here are a few times to spruce up your fall garden landscape.

Don’t “Leave” Your Turf Grass Unattended

While brilliant fall foliage can automatically make your home look more attractive, that doesn’t mean you can slack off on lawn maintenance during this season. Keep falling leaves at bay with frequent raking and patch up any brown spots in the grass.

Lean into Fall Colors

Spice up your flower beds and planters with a splash of color. As your summer plants start to fade, replace them with vibrant mums or other colorful flowers.

Create Points of Interest with Plants

Add splashes of color by arranging pots filled with hearty fall flowers like mums, sedum or asters around your front door, or on a porch or deck. Incorporate planters or container gardens of varied sizes, shapes and colors to add visual interest.

Add Some Hardscape Elements

Don’t forget that while plants add character to your home, you also need to balance your soft landscaping with hard landscaping. Be sure you’re also paying attention to stone, rock formations, sidewalks, fountains, benches, etc.
