With the summer winding down, now’s the perfect time to start planning a fall design for your outdoor area. Not sure where to start? Here are 5 ways to make your backyard fall-friendly without breaking your budget.
Cover Your Deck
If you have a deck, why not enclose it so that you can enjoy the colder weather in comfort. You can fully enclose it with a sunroom or add a simple pergola that will keep you warm well after your neighbours have retreated inside.
Light It Up
Lounging in a dark backyard is never an enjoyable ambience. Fortunately, there are tons of unique deck and patio lighting options that can instantly add some much-needed light once the sun starts setting earlier in the fall. Lighting features can brighten any dark areas and create a little more ambience outside.
Plant A Fall-Friendly Garden
Spring isn’t the only season where you get to enjoy your garden. Fall is also ideal to enjoy the beautiful coloured foliage. Mums, pansies, decorative kale, and asters make spectacular fall arrangements. You can create a backdrop of colour even after your trees have lost their leaves.
Buy A Fire Pit
There’s something special about fall weather that makes you want to stay out even when it’s cold. You can warm up your backyard with a fire pit so that you can cozy up outside all season long. Just grab a good book, a blanket, and your favourite wine or call up your friends and enjoy your own personal fire right on your deck.
Heat Your Pool
You don’t necessarily have to stop swimming in fall. All you need to do is heat your pool so that you can enjoy it even longer. There are a number of heating methods to choose from based on your budget and pool size that will keep your water heated for as long as possible.
