Porches and Decks
Porches, decks and front doors really come alive when adorned with seasonal items such as pumpkins, gourds, hay and corn stalks. Seasonal arrangements highlighting points of entry make your home inviting to neighbors, friends and family. The bright fall harvest color of orange pumpkins can be complemented by the green of ivy and ornamental grasses. Adding ornamental grasses and evergreens can keep your display looking great as the cold weather arrives.
Placement of small bales of hay on your steps or near a light post, and including purple aster, annual sunflowers and ornamental cabbage in small flower pots on top of it can provide your home with great curb appeal during the autumn months. Hang a wreath with a few colorful strands of autumn leaves or pine-cones on a porch column or your front door, and you’ll make the area seem very welcoming and inviting.
Fire Pits and Outdoor
If you have a fire pit, consider setting it up near your outdoor pond, and the flames from it will look especially nice when flickering over your colorful landscaping.
Sun porches are an ideal place for fall decorating to take place, as you can keep certain plants a little past the first freeze. Consider bringing baskets of petunias, begonia or fuchsia inside whenever daytime temperatures first get down into the 50s. That way, you won’t have to worry about covering these plants up to keep them from freezing, and will be able to enjoy them a little longer. Not only that, but they also look nice when paired with red spider lily, sedum or autumn crocus. Consider adding some corn stalks and pumpkins in one corner of the room to help tie your summer and autumn plants together.
Sidewalks and Entryways
Fall decorating can include some earth-toned solar lights around your sidewalk and entryway. In between each one, place a few small gourds or a small pumpkin; a few of them could also be sitting on top of miniature hay bales.
At the entryway to your house, place a straw broom that has a few tufts of colorful flowers stuck in it-marigolds, aster, black-eyed Susan and Russian sage are all good choices. This is an excellent way to welcome fall visitors, or invite trick-or-treaters without having your house appear too scary for small children.
