As the temperature drops and we get closer to the winter months, you may not spend as much time outdoors. However, there are still plenty of beautiful fall evenings and mornings to enjoy from the comfort of your backyard! Check out these five ways to extend patio season and continue to enjoy the space throughout the fall and early winter.
Fire Pit or Heater
Installing a fire pit on your patio is the best way to stay warm on a chilly fall evening. A beautiful fire pit is perfect for having drinks with friends and family, roasting marshmallows, and enjoying the crisp fall air. A patio heater has a similar effect, as you can choose from propane, electric, tabletop, or stand-alone to create your ideal outdoor sanctuary.
Fall Vegetable Garden
If you want to spend mornings and afternoons outdoors, a fall vegetable garden is a great motivation. Plant some cold-weather vegetables such as lettuce, broccoli, and carrots for a calming outdoor activity that will make you want to go outside every day this fall.
The best way to get the most out of your patio is by making it as inviting and comfortable as possible with cozy furniture. Create an outdoor room near your outdoor kitchen or grill by adding a couch with plenty of pillows and blankets, a fire pit, and a TV for watching your favorite team play.
As the sun starts to set earlier, outdoor lighting becomes a huge factor for enjoying your patio. You won’t think to go outside if it’s pitch black out, but a few soft lights will make all the difference. Install string lights, wall lights, and path lights to keep your backyard inviting even when the sun goes down!
Fall evenings are the ideal time for a soak in a hot tub, as relaxing in warm water is best when the air has a slight chill. Entertain friends or enjoy some alone time in your hot tub with a glass of wine and a beautiful view under the stars.
