Mums The Word!

Posted on 10/3/2012 by DNN Support

Autumn is officially here! Ever wonder what you can do to your outside space to make it look just as beautiful now as it did in the summer? As the days get shorter and the nights get colder, consider some of these ways to add beauty and color to your landscape.


Hardy mums are an easy way to add color to any space!  These fall-loving plants make beautiful decorations to your indoor or outdoor area and can be potted in a decorative container or planted in the ground.  Their colorful blooms begin in late September/early October and can withstand the light frost and cold nights that the end of the year brings. 

Another great way to add color to your yard every autumn is by the trees you plant.  There are many varieties of foliage out there to choose from, with bursts of color ranging from sunny yellow to raging reds. Some of the best choices are sugar maples, birch, ash ginkgo, redbud, beech, hickory, butternut, honey locust and the tulip tree just to name a few. 

Fall is also the BEST time to plant trees!  Although air temperatures are beginning to drop, soil temperatures remain warm.  This, along with traditionally higher rainfall in autumn, makes it a great time of year to plant. Fall’s cooler air temperatures mean transpiration is less (plants lose less water through their leaves). Trees and shrubs planted in the fall have the autumn months to develop their root system, giving them a head start in the spring.  During the winter months they can acclimate, rest, and recover before the rush of spring growth.
