Add curb appeal with seasonal decorations

It’s easy to decorate for fall when you use pumpkins and gourds... and it’s budget-friendly too! Here are a few decorating tips from our pros on the landscape care team.

gourds for sale at the famers' market

Found at any farmer’s market, a gourd display typically includes a variety of shapes, textures, sizes, and colors. They are not all orange!

Creating a stack of gourds allows for a visual display that is both interesting and beautiful.

Most displays have varying colors, but some just vary in shades of color to provide a monochromatic display.

gourds and foliage design

Gourds will last longer than fall flowers, but you can consider adding hydrangea flowers, shrub foliage, or colorful fall leaves to your display.

Get creative and transform hollow pumpkins and gourds into seasonal planters.

protect your gourds from rodents

If the stack of gourds is on the ground, hungry pests may consider them dinner. It may be wise to spray the gourds with an animal repellent to reduce the chances of the gourds being eaten.

We love the change of the seasons! Here's a super easy and fun project for the whole family.

You'll need a large pumpkin, some sort of fall plant (mums are a good choice!), a knife to cut your pumpkin, a spoon for scooping, a bowl, and some fun ornaments.

Make sure your pumpkin is big enough to hold your plant. Start by carving out the top, then scoop out the seeds and flesh. Cut a hole in the bottom for drainage, and drop in your plant.

Decorate and enjoy!

Three reasons to start now.


Enjoy the process.

The journey from a concept to a final plan and budget takes time. If you start now, you can enjoy the process without feeling rushed.

Avoid permit delays.

Many projects require permits to build. Don't waste your precious summer waiting for a permit. It's so frustrating!

Beat the spring rush.

With your plan complete and your permit in hand, you'll be ready to build ahead of the spring rush.
