Decorating Your Yard for Fall

It’s that time of year again as summer wanes and the weather cools. Trees start to change to their fall colors, like the red leaf of the maple or the yellow leaf of the birch. Mum buds open in brilliant colors of yellow, rust, orange and red. Pumpkins ripen into brilliant orange and tall corn stalks turn brown. The harvest season begins and considerations for the yard’s transition begin to fill the mind.

Harvest Themes

Decorating your yard for fall enhances the home and celebrates the changing season. Incorporating the images of the harvest is a classic way to decorate. Take an old wheelbarrow and fill it with potted mums and a few pumpkins and set it by the home entrance. Place hay bales and tie up dried corn stalks with brown ribbon on each side of the front door. Place some pumpkins in a harvest basket and sit it on one of the bushels of hay and around the base of the wheelbarrow. This inviting idea will greet guests with a fall-like hello.

Rustic Style

Find an old iron bistro set and place in the seating area of a patio. Stuff an old flannel shirt and pair of old jeans with hay and add a burlap head for a scarecrow and seat him on one of the bistro chairs. Place harvest baskets of rust-colored mums with yellow rudbeckia on the table and pumpkins at the scarecrows feet and one in the other bistro chair. Or make the scarecrow headless and carve a jack-o-lantern and set it on the table. This decorative display makes for a great a rustic backyard. You can also add a Tin Pumpkin Decoration for easy pumpkin decor without the mess or carving.

The Fall Garden

There are many wonderful fall plants that can spruce up the borders and gardens around the yard. Take purple fountain grass and place it in the back of a flower garden for height. In front of it intersperse decorative purple kales with pink mums. Fill a couple planters with a decorative white cabbage and place a combination of yellow and orange pansies around it to set beside the front door. There are many fall plants that will make decorating your yard for fall colorful and fun.
