Fall is officially here, which means you can really start to enjoy all the colors of the season in your yard. While the autumn means that you can relax a little when it comes to your landscaping duties, there are still certain steps that you need to take to keep your yard looking its best. Avoid these fall landscaping mistakes so that you can fully enjoy the season in your yard.
- Overlooking your exterior paint job – the exterior color of your house plays a large role in the complete look of your landscape. Walk around your entire house and look for any missing or peeling paint. If it is time to completely repaint your house, consider a color that will work best with the colors in your yard.
- Forgetting your hardscape areas – the hardscape areas of your yard are any areas that cannot be planted, such as walkways, driveways, and mulch. Keeping these areas clean will help your entire yard to look much better as a whole.
- Skipping out on window boxes – window boxes can help to add depth and texture to your house if the majority of your home is one solid color. Even if you do not have as much space as you want to landscape, window boxes will help to add much needed greenery.
- Letting fallen leaves sit in your yard – while fallen leaves can help to bring the color of the season to your house, they can also lead to serious issues. Fallen leaves that get wet during fall rains can make your driveway and walkways slippery. They can also aid in bacteria growth that can spell disaster for your plants.
