Fall Projects

No matter what part of the country you live in, fall is a wonderful time of year to enhance the curb appeal of your home by landscaping for the season. Use autumn colors and themes to usher in the coming holiday season by taking advantage of all the warmth and cozy things we associate with this time of year.

Festive Touches to Your Landscape – Cheap and Easy

It’s easy to provide a welcoming, festive fall atmosphere to your home exterior with a few inexpensive ideas that can be done for a few dollars with a little elbow grease on a weekend: 

  • Colorful Trees and Bushes – As the sun shines lower in the sky for fewer hours and temps cool down, it’s a great time of year to plant new trees and bushes. Choose colorful seasonal foliage plants to border sitting areas and gardens on all sides of the house and patio.
  • Topiary – Evergreen topiaries planted near a home entrance or in pots can add to pre-holiday fun. Get them potted by October to allow for safe roots before the frost comes.
  • Sitting areas – Add a bench or bistro chairs and tables that will take a little weather. They not only provide peaceful visiting areas, but become decorator showcases as the seasons change.
  • Fall flowers – Colorful mums, asters, pansies, violas and other fall perennials can be planted with buds to have long-lasting blooms all through the fall.
  • Decorative arrangements – Go to local feed or farm stores or a fall nursery to pick up hay bales, colorful gourds, pumpkins and corn stalks to arrange around potted fall flowers. Be sure to use whatever corners or areas near your front entrance to create a welcoming space. A side table, bench, upturned wash tub or old wooden chair can provide a great surface for fall arrangements. Don’t forget leafy wreaths for the front door!
  • Renew mulch – Not only will a fresh layer of mulch protect tender new plants from frost, but new mulch also covers old faded materials and gives a fresh look.
  • Lighting – No need to wait until Christmas season to hang clear lighting in sitting areas, around topiaries and in trees. Use pendulum lighting over sitting areas and string lights with green or brown cords to wrap throughout foliage. Ambiance lighting as the weather turns is a great way to bring festivity into the darker times of day.

Maxwell did a great job installing our outdoor patio and firepit and finished ahead of schedule. When a few minor adjustments need to be made after the project was finished, Troy was very responsive, kept in touch, and had the adjustments made perfectly. Highly, highly recommend!

Christine Tobias

Was very pleased with the level of customer service. I had rock, fill dirt, and mulch delivered. When I arrived I was greeted quickly, they helped me make informed selections, and they delivered immediately. Cost of products was competitive. Will absolutely be coming back here for all of my landscaping/hardscaping needs.

Judy Breeding

Absolutely wonderful experience-Paul and Justin went extra mile to get my paver patio just right. They were pleasant and professional. Several neighbors commented on how neat and careful they were. Troy was especially helpful in every way. Highly recommend!!!

Drew Culbreth

Top Notch company....Reliable and Predictable work. I would put the skill and the results of this company against anyone. The outcome of projects always surpasses the expectation. Troy is great to work with and a stand up guy. Wouldn't want anyone else working in my yard.

Mike Stiene

Matt and Dave installed a beautiful hardscape Belgard wall in our front yard. We would highly recommend Troy and his crew to everyone. Thank you Maxwell Landscaping


Very happy with out outdoor fireplace. When you design a hardscape and its your first one a lot of trust goes to the contractor, especially with the larger area we decided to construct(20x20 w a 6ft fireplace, pavers and large natural stones). We felt very confident in Troy the owner of maxwell landscaping and he did everything to our requests. The job went as planned and his crew arrived when promised and since we had good weather the project was completed quicker than expected. Troy went beyond my expectations and the job estimate remained the same at the end. His crew did an excellent cleanup and I was impressed. To find a contractor in our area who is knowledgable, dependable, and honest is invaluable to me and I plan on using Troy again in the future. Dr Ed Scott and Dr Erin Scott
