Blog / How to Turn Your Landscape Into Your Escape

Fall is coming, which means cooler weather is on its way. Now that we’re close to seeing some respite from this southern heat, it’s time to update your yard to make it an oasis away from the stresses of your day. Continue reading for some new landscaping ideas.

Install something new

There is no better way to enjoy your morning cup of coffee than to sit with your favorite mug on your outdoor patio. Patios are quick to install and provide an easy outlet to enjoy your yard. If you’re looking for a way to stay warm on chilly evenings, consider installing a fire pit as well. If your yard is too cluttered to enjoy or if there are old, worn trees that might not survive the first winter ice storm, have some trees removed.

These simple changes or additions will go a long way in providing you with an outdoor space you can escape to at the end of a long day.

Redesign your landscape

After installing items like your patio and fire pit and removing any unwanted trees, it’s time to give your yard a full, cohesive design. A well-designed yard not only improves the value of your house and adds to the curb appeal, but it can also help you enjoy your yard more fully.

Mulch around trees to give them a cleaner, more defined look. Look for areas to add some new plants and flower gardens. Add strategic lighting along pathways, structures, and trees so that the fun doesn’t have to end when the sun goes down.

Update your fall gardens

Adding some fall colors to your garden will help you embrace the change in season. Install some of our fall favorites, such as pansies, chrysanthemums, and violas. These flowers will survive well into the spring and are cut out to tolerate the mild winters here in North Carolina. Mums can bring some fall reds, yellows, and golds to your garden and can be potted and placed along your patio, outside your front door, or along stairways.
