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.
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 will last longer than fall flowers, but you can consider adding hydrangea flowers, shrub foliage, or colorful fall leaves to your display.
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 repellant to reduce the chances of the gourds being eaten.
The KARE 11 backyard display is a cornucopia of fall color! Watch the Southview landscape care crew work their magic in this 45-second time lapse video.
