Our Favorite Landscaping Plants For A Beautiful And Fruitful Fall - Mallach and Company - Mallach & Company - Leander Real Estate - Real Estate

From vibrantly orange, red, and pink flowers to juicy vegetables from the garden to DIY home decor from fallen leaves, there’s something to be said about the beauty of a fall garden. While many homeowners let the spring season dictate their home landscaping, we think fall is a hidden gem of wealth for Southern gardens. Besides the beautiful fall colors that will transform your home into THE neighborhood spotlight, fall is a fantastic time to plant and get your roots ready for next summer’s heat.
