Flowers that are planted in the fall will bloom beautifully in the spring months.  Hardscaping that is completed in the fall months will be ready before the harsh winter months hit. Create a stunning look for your Shelby Township yard through fall hardscape and landscaping options.

 Hardscaping Ideas To Consider

 If you own a home in Shelby Township and have been looking for ways to improve your yards hardscaping this fall, look no further. Here are a couple great ideas to get you started!

  • Have your custom pool deck installed this fall. The fall months are often too cold for swimming, which makes it the perfect time to have any maintenance or additions to your pool done. Waiting until the warmer months to have your custom pool deck installed means that you have less time to enjoy your pool. Michigan summers already go by too quickly, so you’ll want to enjoy every minute in your pool when the warm weather hits.
  • Have brick paver lighting added. As the weather gets colder in the fall months, it starts to get darker earlier. Many homeowners are now coming home in the dark when just a few months ago it was sunny. Having brick paver lighting added to your yard is welcoming and creates a safe environment. In the winter months, when the ground is slick with ice and snow, that lighting can help you to keep your footing even on the darkest night.

Landscaping Ideas to Consider

Not only is the fall a great time to get your hardscaping completed, but it’s also a great time to get landscaping done.  Even though the weather’s getting colder and the leaves are falling from trees, that doesn’t mean it’s not a great time to plant.  Here are a couple landscaping ideas to consider for you Shelby Township home.

  • Plant flowers. Planting flowers in the fall means that those flowers will then bloom the following spring. Some homeowners will wait until spring to plant, but those flowers often don’t fully bloom until the late summer months. If you want beautiful flowers for as long as possible, it’s important to plant in the fall.
  • Prepare your raised beds for growing vegetables. The fall is a great time to prepare your raised beds to grow vegetables.  Raised beds take up very little space and can even be placed on top of concrete patios. Preparing your raised bed for vegetables in the fall means that come spring, you can start planting quickly and get the most out of the growing season.
