Yes, summer is over and fall is well under way. The fall means colder and wetter weather but it doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy your outdoor living spaces. Your decks and patios are the centerpieces of your outdoor spaces, and you have invested a lot into them, so why start shutting down when the fall weather takes over?
Enjoy your decks and patios throughout the colder seasons, but just in a different way. Here are three ways to help extend your outdoor living late into the year:
Don’t Pack It In – Even if the temperature dropped items such as planters, rugs, and furniture won’t mind a little chill. Anything in and around your deck should remain in place until the first snow fall. Consider adding, not taking away from the look of your outdoor spaces in the fall.
Add Heat – When the sun fails to warm you up, all is not lost. There are lots of ways to heat up your outdoor space. Patio heaters have become increasingly popular. When choosing a heater for your deck, consider the space, how much heat you need and what kind of heat will work best for your needs? Creating a comfortable temperature will keep you and your loved ones outside longer.
Lighting – Fall, with its shorter days, is the time to take advantage of any lighting you already have. It’s also a great time to consider adding more lighting to your landscape and your living spaces. Lighting is important for safety and provides the atmosphere for you to enjoy your outdoor spaces any time of year.
Don’t let the end of summer be the end of good times on your deck. Our experts at Cavalry can help you prepare for the fall and winter season, so you can enjoy your deck or patio for longer.
If you’ve procrastinated, that doesn’t mean you need to wait until next spring to build or start designing a show-stopping deck.
