The summer heat starts to turn into a cool breeze. Leaves begin to change color. Fall is on its way! With a new season comes new opportunities for landscaping design, as well as new popular trends to take part in. We’ll show you how you can customize your outdoor space to fit in with landscape design trends for fall.

Use Warm Colors

A warm color palette can be incorporated into every aspect of your landscaping, like plants, lighting and even the materials you choose to build with. If you have surrounding trees, it’s likely that the leaves will already change color with the seasons, so pair the rest of your space with similar hues. Add some warm-colored decorations as a finishing touch and you’ll be well on your way to the signature fall aesthetic. 

Plant Accordingly

While gardening, choose plants known to thrive well into the fall climate. In terms of flowering perennials, asters, mums and celosia show off in the fall. You can even choose to grow some late-season vegetables, like lettuce, spinach, kale, broccoli or cauliflower. Then, add these fresh veggies to your favorite fall meals.

Install Outdoor Lights

As the nights get longer, the appropriate lighting will add ambiance to your space and make any deck or patio all the more peaceful. To go along with the fall color scheme, opt for some warm-toned lights and find creative bulbs to serve as decorative additions to your space. Light some spice-scented candles and gather with blankets for good conversations with family and friends.

Light a Fire Feature

Add some literal warmth to your warm color palette with a fire feature. Install a fire pit and gather around on chairs or built-in seating. Add some torches and set them up around your outdoor space. An outdoor fireplace can be the perfect spot to relax on a chilly evening and it will become the centerpiece of your outdoor living space.
