Fall Foliage Arrangement


Turn fall foliage into a stunning seasonal arrangement with these simple tips from Jerry Fritz of Linden Hills Gardens and Jerry Fritz Garden Design.


  • Lawn cuttings
  • Sharp pruners


  1. Step 1

    Cut arrangement materials from your lawn early in the morning, when the sugars are flowing and there is more moisture in the stems.

  2. Step 2

    Using sharp pruners, cut plant stems on an angle to increase the amount of surface area there is for water uptake.

  3. Step 3

    Place cut items in partial sun; the final arrangement can live in sun or shade.

  4. Step 4

    Freshen the water in your arrangement every few days.
