Autumn in the Midwest is a gorgeous season, and those who live in the Naperville area look forward to enjoying plenty of good outdoor weather in the upcoming months. Many of us enjoy the fall season in our outdoor living space. If you’re thinking about adding interest, privacy, or wind protection to your space, or to create an entertainment area, fall is the time to install the outdoor space of your dreams.
Here are a few ideas to get started:
TREES –Start your outdoor plan by choosing the right tree for your space. A specimen tree that overlooks your patio area will bring shade, beauty and interest for years to come. Or, you may want to plant a row of trees to create a windbreak, living privacy fence or boundary marking. If the choices seem overwhelming, we can help narrow your selection and provide you with the best trees for your property.
- Evergreen trees are beautiful year round, offering dense coverage, attracting birds, and come in a variety of colors. Consider the Black Hills Spruce Native to South Dakota, the Black Hills Spruce thrives in our area, and can grow from 20 – 40 feet tall and 15 – 25 feet wide, according to The Morton Arboretum.
- Deciduous shade trees such as maples and oaks offer the beauty of changing colors and majestic heights. They provide welcome shade during our hot summers, can reduce home energy costs and increase your home’s value. We have a large selection of mature shade trees, including Autumn Blaze, Red Sunset, and October Glory Red Maples, Linden trees and many more.
Trees are only the beginning! We will help create a complete landscape plan customized for your space, to include hardscape materials such as walkways, patios and patio walls, outdoor kitchens and lighting. Fall is a very popular time to use outdoor fire pits, which extend your outdoor living far into the season. With so many varieties available, we can show you the best choices for your area.
