3 Tips for Preparing Your Patio for the Fall 

With fall almost here and winter right around the corner, it’s pretty likely that you won’t be doing many of the summer activities that the warm weather allows for. However, one thing you don’t have to give up on is spending time on your patio with your friends and family. With a few quick changes, you can make your just as attractive and inviting in the fall. Here are some tips to help.

Deep Clean Your Patio

The changing of the seasons is the perfect opportunity to start fresh, and that means giving your patio a deep clean. Use mild soap and a hose to wash away any stains or gunk that may have accumulated over the summer. For an ever deeper clean, you can rent a pressure washer to get into any crevices that a simple garden hose can’t reach.

Change Up Your Patio Furniture

Just like the leaves change in the fall, so should your patio decor. Your summer umbrella and bright furniture cushions stick out like a sore thumb when contrasted by falling leaves and cool crisp fall air. Swap out your decor with more seasonally appropriate patterns and colors. You should also consider swapping out some of your summer furniture pieces with other pieces that better suit the fall season.

Add an Element of Warmth

With temperatures dropping, it may be difficult to enjoy your newly decorated patio without a heat source. Adding a wood-burning or electric fireplace to your backyard is a great way to add warmth to your patio. We recommend a chiminea – a front loading fireplace with a vertical chimney. These are perfect for keeping warm (or roasting marshmallows) while keeping the smoke away from your face.
