Although the summer is over, that doesn’t mean you have to let your landscaping decline. These great fall landscaping ideas can bring fall beauty to your yard. Here we’re going to focus on using landscaping structures, such as pergolas or gazebos, as support for your fall landscaping.

Pergola Landscaping Ideas

Outdoor Pergola

Pergolas are a delightful focal point that offer beauty as well as a place for plants and or vines to grow. There are a wide variety of climbing plants for pergolas that either flower in fall or add some nice autumn colour with their leaves.

Here are just some of the options for plants to incorporate on your pergola:
• Roses
• Clematis
• Honeysuckle
• Jasmine
• Trumpet Vine
• Ivy
• Morning Glory

We can help you choose the right plants for your growing conditions.

Gazebo Landscaping Ideas

Backyard Gazebo

Gazebos are another wonderful option for a backyard. They can offer a shady spot to sit in the warmer months, and a romantic space to share a moonlit dinner in the fall. Add some mood lighting, a privacy screen, or a hammock to create a distinct and fun space.

Try these other gazebo ideas for fall:

• Add fabric around your gazebo to integrate some privacy
• Attach a lattice around your gazebo
• Allow vines or climbing plants to grow on one or multiple sides
• Construct a walkway from your gazebo to your home
• Surround your gazebo with gardens, plant beds or plant boxes
