It’s hard to believe that August is already upon us! With that in mind, we know that the end of long summer days are coming and instead we will be greeted with clear blue skies and a breeze that seems to cool down everything around us. While we are sad to see summer go soon, the fall season brings a crisp clarity and bright, dashes of color that seem to make our sadness quickly disappear.
Do you love the warm color that fall brings? If you do, we can help bring that fall color right into your front yard! That’s right; fall trees can become a staple in your fall landscaping. The best time to start planting for fall color is in early September; meaning that the best time to start thinking about your fall landscaping is now!
There are several different trees that you can add to your fall landscaping to add stunning fall foliage to your home or business. Not sure what to add? We did some research and listed some of our favorite fall plants. For example, if you are looking for yellow, consider planting an American Elm, a Boxelder, an Eastern Redbud or a Fraser Magnolia.
If yellow is not the fall color you are so craving, we have non-yellow ideas, too! Some of our favorite “non-yellows” are the Black Tupelo which turns a bright orange-red as the temperature begins to cool. We also love the Flowering Dogwood and Red Maple. Each of these plants offers a unique red-purple blast of color. No matter what color you prefer, these plants will offer you a magnificent show of color this fall. Don’t be sad to let summer go – your life, and your fall landscaping, will be full of color this fall if you call us today!
