5 Ways to Prepare Your Outdoor Space for the Fall Season

We all want to make the most of our outdoor living space, even in the cooler weather months. Fall is right around the corner, and it's a beautiful time of year when family and friends gather outdoors to celebrate a season filled with football, bonfires, and pumpkins. These five tips on preparing your outdoor space for Fall will transform your outdoor space into a harvest-inspired oasis.


Refresh Your Landscape and Garden with Autumn Colors

Fall is also the perfect time to refresh your soil with a new layer of compost for new flowers to grow. Begin by deciding your core color scheme. Once vibrant tones transition into burnt hues, swap out geraniums, petunias, and lobelias for chrysanthemums, violas, pansies, and goldenrods. In addition to gorgeous fall-blooming perennials, plenty of trees, shrubs, and annuals can add depth and color to your landscape.


Change Out Patio Furniture 

When the temperatures begin to drop, consider putting away the umbrella for the season. Swap out your wicker furniture with other waterproof furniture and invest in furniture covers to protect from the wet rainy, and snowy weather conditions. Keep a storage box or woven basket near the patio furniture and fill it with warm knit, fleece, and woven throw blankets for easy access. Swap out summer's nautical striped pillows for rustic maroons and red fabrics for knits to fully embrace the spirit of autumn. An outdoor waterproof rug like West Elm's Woven Cable Outdoor rug is another way to make an open-air space feel cozy. 


Cozy Fire Places and Fire Pits

Nothing says outdoor living like a fireplace, which creates more of a relaxing, campfire feel for when you're spending time with friends or family. If you have the space, build a wood-burning fire pit out of stone or even use gas or propane portable metal or steel fire pit for smaller patios. Ensure the children are supervised and not get too close to the fireplace. Always keep a fire extinguisher close by.


Protect Your Outdoor Space with a Pergola or Patio Cover

A patio cover or pergola is not only a great idea for summer but also for Fall. In summer, you'll have the shade you need. And in Fall, you'll have protection from rain and the harsher elements. You can find Pergolas in a variety of styles & high-quality materials for a custom look and feel.


Add Decor of Warm Harvest Colors 

Wreaths and garlands are a great way to bring nature into your outdoor space this Fall. Warm colors include but are not limited to earthy colors like burgundy reds, amber oranges, deep purples, and natural browns. Opt for fake leaves that'll last throughout the season to get the most out of the decor. It's always nice to see pumpkins, gourds, or full cornucopias as decor. To illuminate your outdoor space, hang outdoor string lights and add a few colorful scented candles with your favorite fall fragrances, such as pumpkin spice or variations of apple and cinnamon.
