Denver Outdoor Kitchen Experts Share How to Get the Most Out of Your Outdoor Space This Fall


October 2, 2019

Fall weather is just around the corner. That means the temps will drop, leaves will change color, and you’ll start looking for ways to stay entertained indoors more often. Unfortunately, it also means that using your outdoor living area may not be as easy as it was during the summer months. That doesn’t mean you can’t still enjoy your space comfortably. It just means you need to plan a little bit. Your trusted Denver landscaping pros are here to help. Here are a few simple ways you can make your outdoor space more comfortable, even when it’s getting chilly.

Use or Install a Fire Pit
Nothing adds ambiance to the space like a roaring fire when it’s chilly outside. If your outdoor living area already has a fire pit, make sure it’s ready for fall ahead of time. But if you don’t have one, get one installed. These simple improvements add value to your home and can help you better enjoy your living area year-round. Best of all, they work with almost any type of design and décor.

Get Some Designated Outdoor Blankets
Sometimes, all you need is an extra layer to stay warm on those colder fall evenings. One of the easiest ways to increase your comfort outside while also adding a touch of color to the space is to use a blanket. Any blanket will do, but thicker cotton blankets are perfect for outdoor spaces. They’re easy to wash, come in almost any color you can imagine, and are incredibly durable. 

Add Lighting
The sun starts setting earlier as the year goes on. This means it will get dark fast, making it hard for you and your loved ones to enjoy your outdoor space. If you find that the space gets too dark too early, add some extra lighting. These can be permanent fixtures or, as the seasons change, decorative holiday lights. 

Make Things Beautiful
Your landscaping looks great during the warmer months, but that doesn’t mean you have to let it fade once things cool off. Sometimes, all you have to do is add a few new decorative touches. Potted plants and gourds are great for adding color and can get brought inside at night to prevent freezing. 

Add Weather Protection
If your deck or patio is open to the elements, all the warmth from the space escapes quickly. You’re subject to the weather and don’t have a way to protect yourself from those early snow flurries. Add a cover to the space to create an added layer of warmth and weather protection. This will help extend the life of your outdoor furniture and makes it easier to trap heat where you want it.

Your outdoor living space can get used year-round. You just need to think outside the box. If you’re ready to transform your outdoor kitchen or living area into an all-weather-ready spot, don’t wait. Contact us today and see how we can help. Our team will work with you to bring your vision to life.
