At Benninger Landscaping, we take a lot of pride in all things landscape design. From providing our customers with natural landscaping options to enhance the beauty of their homes to installing walkways, retaining walls, and even poolscapes, we do it all. And as you can imagine, things slow down for us a bit in fall. We’re still out here happily doing everything from sprinkler blowouts to building out the ideal playground design for your kids in the back yard (you know, so they can have somewhere to play after school to get rid of some of their excess energy before dinnertime).

No matter what project you’d like to have completed this fall, we would be happy to oblige. As we pointed out in a previous blog, fall is a great time to hire a landscaping company because not only can you generally get your project completed more quickly, but you also have the benefit of knowing that your outdoor space will be in good condition when spring rolls around next year.

Having said that, we think that there are a few things you can do for yourself while the weather starts to cool off a bit that will also help to improve your curb appeal. Here are our tips:

Embrace the Upcoming Holidays


There aren’t a lot of times where keeping a skeleton on your front porch is socially acceptable, so now is the time to take advantage of the season! Spend some time with your family and carve up a few jack-o-lanterns with unique designs and keep them out in front of your home. Not only is decorating for Halloween a great way to get into the holiday spirit, but it also allows you and your family to collaborate and come up with the perfect way to decorate your home.


When Turkey Day finally rolls around, you’ll be glad that you took the time to celebrate by decorating your outdoor space. We’re not saying that you have to go overboard and get a giant inflatable turkey or anything, but decorating with fall colors can really help you to get your mind in the right place. With so much to be thankful for, you can really get into the spirit of the holiday by spending time with your family and coming up with a few decorating ideas that help to bring you all together. In the end, isn’t that what it’s all about?


Whether you celebrate Christmas, winter solstice, Diwali, Hanukkah, Festivus, or something else entirely, this is truly one of the most wonderful times of the year. People all around the world seem to care more for one another, snow starts to cover the ground, and we all enjoy huddling around the fire with a cup of hot apple cider or cocoa. It really doesn’t get much better than that. Show your sense of holiday cheer by decorating the exterior of your home accordingly.

New Years

Ah yes, another year has come and gone and now is the time that people get together to usher it out and ring in the new one with hopes and dreams about what is in store for them. Whether you still have your Christmas lights up or not, coming up with a plan to decorate for New Years can be incredibly fun. Because there aren’t traditional decorations, you are free to decorate in such a way that you see fit, ushering in all of the good feelings that come along with celebrating the arrival of another year.

We’re Here To Help

Perhaps you have a specific plan for how you’ll decorate for the holidays. Our team of landscape design experts can help to make those plans go smoothly. For instance, adding a retaining wall to your property might make for the perfect place to set up your seasonal decorations.
