Continuing to enjoy evenings in the backyard once summer has come to an end is easy when you add a heating device to your conversation areas. Not only will it keep you warm, but your loved ones and neighbours will love gathering around a fire. Whether you want something permanent or a portable, a wide range of models are available in stores. For instance, a fire pit to roast marshmallows, a gas fireplace (ideal for smaller spaces) or an outdoor space heater like the ones you will find on restaurant or bar patios.
Remove: The Distance Between the BBQ and the House
Bring your barbecue closer to the house and place your potted herbs by the door. This will encourage you to continue cooking outside despite sometimes having to wear a coat and gloves. You should also consider installing some form of overhead covering to protect the barbecue from bad weather, like a small awning.
Remove: The Parasol
Your parasol has been your ally against sunburns all summer long. Put it away for fall. Not only will you get more sunlight in the daytime, but without the parasol you will have a clearer view of the stars at night. Moreover, if you have an outdoor hammock, adapt it to the changing season with pillows and throws so you can continue to enjoy naps under the trees or stargaze snug as a bug.
