Fall & Halloween Landscaping Ideas

As one of the most experienced and trusted landscaping firms in NJ, we take pride in transforming the ideas and visions of our clients into eye-catching and picturesque designs.

Autumn is an ideal season to show off your property, with the beautiful colors of falling leaves, the new addition of pumpkins and other seasonal plants, and the fun and excitement that Halloween brings.

We’ve compiled some quick landscape design ideas for how to prepare your home for fall (and of course, Halloween). Outdoor decorations, either in the front or back of your property, should be pulsating with creativity and bursting with colors to match this beautiful season.

Do-it-Yourself (DIY) Porch Design

Even the simplest changes can make all the difference when it comes to Halloween decorating on your front porch. By swapping out your everyday doormat, adding a fall-themed wreath to the front door or hanging plants or fake bats, these small pops of color can bring you into the spooky spirit.

Country-Themed Decorating

Create a classic country Halloween vignette on your porch or back deck by arranging hay bales, mums, pumpkins, and dried corn stalks around your steps. Fake spider webs add a not-too-scary touch.

Spooky Walkway

Because we offer hardscaping capabilities, it is important to accentuate this part of your property, as landscape design doesn’t end with flowers and foliage. Set the stage for Halloween with some spooky orange/black or dim lighting that will lead guests to your door for trick or treating! Or, to make it even simpler, add a skeleton, witch or other character to greet guests along the way. The options are endless!

Pumpkin Fever

Fall pumpkins and gourds can easily come together to make a simple outdoor decoration, whether lined up on your steps or in a planter or vase. You can even fill a basket with your favorite colorful fall pumpkins, squash, and other gourds, and place it on your doorstep, back/front porch or patio. Want a different look? Try using white pumpkins in place of orange.
