Don’t let cooler days stop you from using your outdoor living space. In fact, fall can be a great time to improve this area and make it more suitable for use in all four seasons! Spending time outdoors is a great way to relax and lift one’s spirits, so make caring for your outdoor living space a priority in 2015.

There are number of fun outdoor activities that are perfect for fall weather.

   •    Sitting around a campfire.
   •    Enjoying hot chocolate, cider, or coffee with family and friends.
   •    Roasting hotdogs and marshmallows.
   •    Making s’mores.
   •    Playing flag football or soccer.
   •    Collecting and pressing colorful leaves.
   •    Carving pumpkins


Many of these activities require a special outdoor space with comfy chairs and other amenities in order to be truly enjoyable, though. So if your outdoor living space is not living up to its potential, fall 2015 is a great time to make a change.


The improvements you can make to your outdoor living space vary somewhat depending on whether you have a deck or a patio.


Let’s start by look at some examples of how you can make a deck more appealing for outdoor fall fun.


   •    Turn the deck into a screened-in porch. You can hang thick blinds that can be lowered on chilly days and use an electric space heater for added warmth if needed.
   •    Make sure you have a nice table for enjoying fall snacks and drinks with your loved ones. Order a new glass table top if needed.
   •    If safety concerns are keeping you from letting your little ones enjoy time on the deck, consider safety walls made of transparent Lexan or Plexiglas sheeting.
   •    Buy durable but comfortable cushions for your outdoor seating and stash some blankets and throws in a cabinet on or near the deck.


A patio also has lots of potential for keeping your family in touch with nature on autumn evenings. What a great time to add a brick pizza oven or built-in fire pit! If your family enjoys gathering around an outdoor fire, you may wish to store items like roasting sticks, pie irons, camping mugs, and so forth right on the patio.


Adding tempered glass shelves for storage could boost convenience and help keep your outdoor living space tidy and well-organized. Don’t forget comfy seating for relaxation after playing a fall sport or enjoying a brisk nature walk. With the right touches, patios and decks can be the scene of memorable autumn fun with family and friends!
