Garden Photo of the Day

Front Yard Fall

Steve Hayward shares a blast of beautiful fall colors from Utah.

"What's not to like about fall except maybe the leaf raking? It's satisfying to see the culmination the year's efforts in the garden morph into such beautiful colors and know it was definitely worth all the hard work. This past summer I shared pictures of my wife's and my separate patios. Now let me show you a bit of 'fall in the front'."

    Great job, Steve! Such beautiful fall colors. Such crisp bed lines. Do you use everedge? Thanks for sharing!

      Thanks for the compliment about the yard.You asked me about everedge and I don't know what that is. I use what someone told me is called a French edge. All it is is a deep edge maintained by my line trimmer. It's not really that hard to keep looking sharp. Again, thank you for the comments.

    Hi, Steve, I remember well your previous submissions with the fun Battle of the Patios theme. Looks like your love for vibrant colors continues to be fully expressed in the fall with those dynamite mums and your selections of Japanese maples. Everything looks great and I am humbly envious of your impeccably cared for beds...looks like weeds don't stand a chance!

    Hey, Steve. I think your front garden should join New England in being famous for fabulous fall color. Your maples are awesome.

    Beautiful trees and shrubs. Nice use of mums and ornamental kale to fill in. I may steal your sign idea for next Halloween.

    Steve, so great to see out front; absolutely as great as your patios. You've really chosen some amazing specimens for fall color. I'm crazy about the simple, offset design of your front walkway, and the curvy-edged bed is a wonderful contrast. Just great design and it really shows off the containers and plantings. I was really slow on the uptake with the Dead and Breakfast....I wondered if you got many guests with a crazy name like that....Duh. Halloween.
