Once fall hits, I don't like buying more plants. I start just trying to use what I have.  Recycle, reuse and cheap.

This is what I started with!  Take out tired summer planting and swap for fall!

Summer planters become fall planters in stages.  Swap out summer flowers for fall ones!

Keep any tall grasses you have in your summer planters

Keep your marigolds.  They are the perfect fall color!

Add pumpkins.  Pie pumpkins are inexpensive!

Plant some mums.  Often the little ones give a big pop of color!

Fill in bare spots with dried hydrangeas from your garden.

Autumn joy sedum can be cut and added to your fall planter too!
