Hamburg - Autumn is in the air! Follow our terrace decorating tips to turn your outdoor area into a sea of colours.

Pumpkins and autumn flowers set colour accents

One of the great things about autumn is that you can find many of the items for decorating your terrace directly in nature. Of course, you cannot do without pumpkins in all shapes and sizes. But nature has more to offer than ornamental pumpkins: Autumn flowers like asters, chrysanthemums and sunflowers are perfect for turning your terrace into a sea of colours. What you need to observe: It’s all in the mix! Experiment with the different colours when decorating. Chinese lanterns add further elegant dabs of orange to your autumn decoration. It is not always necessary to arrange your flowers in a conventional vase or flower pot. Instead, you could also place the bouquet into a decorative tree stump for a change!

Include garden furniture in your terrace design

Your outdoor furniture can easily be visually enhanced. Glass table vases can be filled with chestnuts, pine cones and dry foliage. Alternatively, you could also fill them with colourful sand and small tea candles. Doors and house walls can be decorated with autumn wreaths or maple leaf garlands. In addition, you could also use leaf-shaped fairy lights. Not only will they perfectly match your other decorations, they will also allow you to enjoy the fruits of your labour after dark.

Clean up any leaves on your terrace

As beautiful as dry leaves may be if used for decorative purposes, they should, nonetheless, not be lying around on the floor of your terrace. Not only would it make your terrace look neglected, wet leaves on the terrace floor might also prove slippery. Apart from being a potential hazard, it would also not leave a good impression with potential home buyers. That is why it is always a good idea to clean up the leaves in your garden at regular intervals. Undoubtedly, this is somewhat tedious, but if you use the right equipment - a leaf blower, for example - it can even be fun.

Weatherproof your decoration

Autumn can be beautiful, but also very unsettled. Autumn storms can quickly destroy all your hard work. For this reason, you should always take care not to use fragile vases when decorating your terrace or at least to not leave them outside during the night. Should you decide to use decorations like the tree stump mentioned above, ensure that the wood is protected from the rain so that is does not start to rot.

Our tips show: It is easy to create lovely autumn decoration for your terrace using only the most basic of materials. Most of what you’ll need you can find directly in nature. An autumnal terrace will most certainly turn your house viewing into a big success.
