As the leaves on the trees start to turn form green to orange and then begin to fall we know that we are truly in the third season of the year. Now is the time to incorporate the autumnal colors into our container gardens. Depending on your location maybe it is a little late for this year, but you can still find some great ideas from the containers shown below. I found these in an article on the Garden Lovers Club website.
Fall is my favorite time of year. Apples, pumpkins, and multi-colored leaves can all be incorporated into your garden d?cor. Orange is a major color consideration for planters on my doorstep because gourds and other festive decorations will be arranged around the planters. This gallery features a lot of planter ideas that will look great this fall.
I absolutely love the seventh option on this list. It features a bright orange pumpkin that is being used as the actual planter, and the flowers growing inside have gorgeous orange and yellow blooms that are perfect for the Halloween and fall season.
If you are looking for a larger arrangement, then the fifth option is perfect for a large garden. It is designed using the base of a fountain, but any statue or garden bench that you have in your garden will look lovely with this style. Play with the colors red, orange, and yellow to find flowers, pumpkins, and gourds that work well together. The cattails in this idea are not something that I would typically use in my garden, but they are placed in the perfect location to tie everything together perfectly.
The fourth idea on the list is also a great one. Using a large basket as a planter is the perfect idea to incorporate fall d?cor into your garden. In addition, if the frost comes before you are prepared for it, you can easily pick the basket up and bring the whole design indoors without needing to dismantle it. The only thing I would do differently with this idea is to add more color. I absolutely love deep reds and dark oranges in my plants this time of year.
