Do you and your family love sitting out on the patio, breathing in some fresh air? If so, there are ways you can extend your patio-sitting season into fall with just a few simple changes. While a completely redone patio or outdoor kitchen from The Southern Landscape Group is always an option, we know that route isn't in the cards for everyone. So, here are some of our favorite ways to quickly spruce up the patio for fall.
1. Add Pops of Color
One of the best and simplest ways to spruce up your patio this fall is by incorporating décor with fall colors. This could be as easy as swapping out the pillows on your chairs and loungers. Or it might look like putting new fall florals in the planters. Either way, the fall colors are sure to pop and bring some vibrancy to your patio.
2. Light the Candles
As we transition to cooler nights, you can add light and charming candles around the patio. Not only do these provide you with a more intimate setting, but they'll also put off more heat than you think. Candles are perfect as table centerpieces or layered throughout an inactive fireplace.
3. Bring Home the Pumpkins
Fall is a great time to hit up the pumpkin patches with the kids and bring home your own small patch. Choose pumpkins and gourds with various colors and shapes for more contrast, then stage them along the edges of the patio or up the steps. You can even add some bales of straw to give your patio that perfect fall look.
4. Outdoor Fireplace Foliage
Outdoor fireplaces are the perfect backdrop for fall décor and foliage. Not only will the crackle of each log keep you cozy and warm, but so will the picture-perfect setting you create using fall florals. You can even hang some vine and fall leaves along the mantel to create that perfect fall patio retreat.
5. Blankets & Rugs
You can easily transition your summer patio into a fall oasis with just the throw of a rug and some soft blankets. These additions will even make you want to enjoy your morning coffee on the patio as you soak in the chill of the morning. These also keep your feet warmer and make the space flow with the rest of your home.
