2. Gardening

To add additional color to your backyard, HGTV recommends planting fall perennials including the stunning Swamp Sunflower, the Plumbago flower which turns red in the fall, and Lilyturf.

These flowers will flourish throughout the fall season keeping your backyard blossoming.

Another idea for planting is to plant Lemongrass to deter mosquitos as Buzzfeed suggests.

While gardening, you can also get creative by carefully selecting which pots to put the plants in or you can build your own garden section.
