Summer to Fall Changeover for Your Outdoor Spaces

September 5th, 2023 by tisner

Summertime means spending time outside, and our outdoor living spaces reflect that. Just because it is almost fall, however, does not mean wrapping it all up and putting it away! There are many simple ways to transform porches, decks, and patios for use in cooler weather. Here are some simple ideas that will keep us outdoors a little longer.

  • When the summer blooms of potted plants fade, repot the containers with ornamental grasses, decorative kale, pansies, marigolds, and chrysanthemums. 
  • Cover pillows and cushions with washable covers in neutral tones with splashes of reds, golds, and greens to add fall color to an outdoor seating area. 
  • Drape light blankets over the backs and arms of seating for use on chilly evenings. 
  • The days are getting shorter, and good lighting for outdoor spaces is essential. Use LED-lighted torches, candles, and lanterns tables for soft, relaxing lighting without spending much money. 
  • Add a cozy outdoor area rug to ward off cold feet and add texture to the space. 
  • Block chilly breezes with curtains! Create these simple no-sew outdoor curtains from drop cloths that can also be tied back to allow the sunshine in on warm days. 
  • Buying or creating a firepit invites everyone to sit around on a chilly evening. Get creative with ideas for 57 types of DIY firepits from 
  • If an outdoor fire is not possible, outdoor heaters come in many styles and price ranges and use electricity or propane to keep everyone warm. 
  • Finally, when the pumpkin patches open, get a variety of pumpkins, gourds, and other fall produce, and tuck them into container plantings, or create a centerpiece or tablescape. 

Just because the days are shorter and nights are cooler does not mean the outdoors are not to be enjoyed! Spending time outdoors is proven to help alleviate stress, make us feel happier, and may help us sleep better, especially if we can catch the sunset and nightfall. Neglecting a much-loved outdoor space just because it is fall defeats the purpose; it was created to be used, and what better time of year to make the most of it than autumn?!
