Fall Décor for your Outdoor Space



Unique gourds and colorful pumpkins, friendly scarecrows and dried decorative corn husks, layered greenery and an abundance of fall foliage; it’s easy to be a little extra when decorating your outdoor space for Fall.  Avoid that overwhelming feeling that comes with “idea overload” brought on by Pinterest after Pinterest search and leave it to Four Seasons Sunrooms and Windows. We’ve compiled our favorite Fall décor for your outdoor space, so you can spend less stressing and more time relaxing in your cozy Sunroom this November.

Pumpkins, Gourds, and Squash
From white and sugar pie pumpkins to muscat gourds and pattypan squash, Fall gives us some of nature’s best decorations. Our favorite outdoor space décor tip involves filling outdoor lanterns with an array of pumpkins, gourds, and squash. This simple, yet unique, décor adds a pop of color, a splash of fall, and a hint of classic all at once.  This décor works best when done with multiple lanterns of varying sizes.

Bonus Tip: Having an outdoor party? Hang mini pumpkins or little decorative gourds from the corners of the tablecloth to avoid the wind ruining your tablescape. Simply tie a rustic yarn, such as tweed, to the stems of your pumpkin or gourd and run it through the grommets found on the corners of some tablecloths.



Autumn Accents with Layered Greenery
If your outdoor landscape includes steps, our favorite décor involves layering a mix of greenery and autumn accents on each side of your steps. You have plenty of options to make your steps unique to your preferences. Our favorite fall plant is the Coral Bells, also known as heuchera. Not only are they impossible to kill, but they come in an assortment of colors and leaf textures that are sure to match any home. Our next favorite comes in close second: decorative cabbage and kale. These inedible cabbages serve as the perfect décor option with their rustic colors and their ability to flower even as the weather gets colder. Be sure to dabble in some autumn accents such as pumpkins, mums, corn husks, and more to create a layered look fit for an HGTV photoshoot.

Bonus Tip: Place potted plants such as the Coral Bells into a hallowed-out pumpkin for a great fall-themed planter.

Embrace the Classics
If you’re looking for a more low-key style to your outdoor space that is classic yet unique, try dabbling into the world of fall pastel colors. Pumpkins and gourds come in many colors, but not many think of utilizing their pastel options for their home. Soft shades of whites, pinks, and even blue can be found at local farms and will bring a classy look to your home instantly. Don’t forget to tie the entire look together with a classic wreath made out of dried flowers, moss, dried grapevine, and succulents. For an added touch, you can get these battery-operated LED Fairy Lights to add a hint of nighttime sparkle.

The Flowers of Fall
When you think of fall flowers, an instant classic that comes to mind are mums. Mums are budget-friendly and come in varying sizes and colors, but there are other potted flowers that are overlooked as fall décor. Our favorite is the Stonecrop, a gorgeous late-blooming succulent that can handle the extremes of winter (and even the extremes of summer), strong winds, and even frost. If you’re looking for more of a pop of color than what succulents bring, we suggest Goldenrods which bloom in late summer through the entire Fall season. Their yellow hue is cheery and grow easily with other ferns.

Protecting Your Outdoor Spaces During The Winter

Winter is here, which means that you should officially be checking off the outdoor winterizing that’s been on your to do list for months. Outdoor spaces can be a cherished secondary living space to us, especially given the level of time and money that we dedicate to the design and upkeep. When the spring comes, we often jump at the chance to set all of our outdoor items up, start planting, and restart lawn maintenance. But, when the leaves start falling and a chill hits the air, we long to hold on to those endless summer nights. For this reason, many people put off important maintenance required to preserve external assets. Striving to minimize damage to patios, decks, sunrooms and other outdoor objects should be at the top of your to do list during the fall each year. Preventative tasks will help prevent costly repairs or replacement. With a little bit of sweat equity or help from third parties that specialize in this process, you can assure that you are taking the appropria
