How To Create A Fall Landscape Scene
Add to the beautiful fall colors of your lawn with a display of vibrant mum plants and autumn-inspired accessories. A lovely autumn scene like this will transform your home into a fall showcase you'll be proud of. Here are some charming ideas for creating an outside fall landscape.
The main feature of your autumn scene will be your mum plants. You can buy mums in a variety of colors and sizes. For an eye-catching display, buy mums in a variety of fall colors that complement the outside decor of your house.
You can plant your mums or leave them in their pots for your fall landscape. If you decide to plant your mums, you'll get the most out of them if you choose groups of mums according to their bloom time and length of fall in your area. Not only are mums beautiful, but they're also a very hardy plant. Most mum plants can withstand a light frost.
Fall Landscape Scene
This first fall display idea will be for potted mums. Decide on the outside area where you want to create your fall scene. Place a few hay bales in this area. Stack two side by side and one on top to form a pyramid shape. Place your mum plants on the top and around the hay bales. Make a scarecrow to stick behind the bales. Use corn stalks to add balance by placing them on each side of your scarecrow. Complete your fall display by adding rustic lanterns throughout it.
This next autumn display idea is for a landscape with planted mums. Place hay bales behind your mum plants. Place a potted mum on top of your bale of hay for height. Make a scarecrow to stick in your mum plants. Use corn stalks to add decorative fall touches by sticking them throughout your mums and bail of hay. Place lanterns on each side of your mum plant on the bale of hay for an eye-catching autumn scene.
Now that you've created your own outdoor fall scene, don't forget to decorate the porch, sidewalks and stairs of your home. Adding mums and a few autumn props to these areas will tie the look of your outdoor fall decorating together.
