Autumn Glam Not Kitsch--for Fall Yards

Posted by Brandon Vasquez on Thursday, September 20th, 2012 at 2:46pm.

Let's face it...transitional seasons make for sad-looking backyards.

Although autumn colors are gorgeous, properties with closed pools and post-summer garden beds lack the punch that sellers need to capture the hearts of potential buyers.

Spring is not the only time that your garden can be an outdoor sanctuary. Minnesota offers a Theater of Seasons. Rather than lament over the passing of warm summer months--celebrate the color and vibrancy of Fall. There are ways to decorate your yard for the season without cartoonish scarecrows and jack o'lanterns. Although these playful elements are fun, why limit your decor to one holiday? Addressing your gardens, yards and porches seasonally extend the longevity of your decor and ultimately stretch the dollar. Give your front door a facelift with a fresh new color and flank it with seasonal potted plants for an effective impact statement.

However you choose to present your property, bear in mind that the positive approach you take will convey itself in how your property appeals to its next homeowner.

Note these easy tips on how you can spruce up your backyard during the fall season,
