Add Some Functionality to Your Backyard with These Fall Gardening Ideas
Now that you’ve added fashion to your garden, let’s add some functional fall gardening ideas.
Give Your Garden Warmth or a Touch of Cool with LED Lights
Modern LEDs can lend both warmth and cool to your garden. You can add some beautiful warm yellow lights or some blue lights to suit your mood.
Improve Your Garden Drainage
Good soil drainage is important for your garden. It will help your flowers grow healthier and prevent soil from getting waterlogged.
Build Raised Beds
Raised beds can be filled with good quality free draining topsoil. Install plants that thrive in well-drained soil that are compatible with the plant’s light requirements. Understanding the growth habits of the plants installed will help to plan proper spacing.
Add Soil Drainage
Making your soil more permeable can alleviate soil drainage problems. Add organic matter such as pine bark mulch and compost then use a tiller to work it into the soil 8-10 inches deep.
Add Bark Chippings
Bark chippings can absorb a lot of moisture; plus, they limit weed growth. They can even insulate flower beds during cold snaps.
Invest in Some Hardscaping
A well-planned stone walkway, a stone patio, and a couple of retaining walls will add interest and beauty to your garden. These are essential fall garden ideas you shouldn’t ignore.
Add a Stone Patio
A stone patio can benefit both friends and family. It’s a low maintenance investment that can provide an outdoor room for dining, entertaining, and relaxing for years.
Build a Stone Walkway
Stone walkways add wonder and elegance to your garden. They function as access to get closer to the plants for feeding, harvesting, maintaining, and enjoying.
Retaining walls can add some structure to your garden. They create flat usable space for you to enjoy your garden and they provide drainage solutions. You can establish boundaries between different flowers or design different themes for your garden based on the divisions.
