Like all of Kansas City, we are so excited for Sunday’s big game. But Chiefs Kingdom understands that being a fan doesn’t just happen on Sundays or a certain time of year. It’s an all-out, all-the-time kind of passion.

Call us biased, but we think red and gold landscaping is a great way to show our pride and celebrate our community. There are a ton of colorful trees, shrubs, perennials, and annuals that can add winning pizzazz to your landscaping. And if you want to accent it with a Patrick Mahomes statue or fountain? Well, that’s up to you – and we support you 100%.

Here are some options that can be red, yellow, or both!
