Extending Your Outdoor Season: Embracing the Cooler Months with cozy Landscape Features

As the temperature starts to drop and the leaves change color, we often pack up our outdoor space for the season and retreat indoors. However, by leveraging certain landscape features, you can extend your outdoor season well into the cooler months.

Below, we'll explore various ways to make the most of your outdoor space during fall and winter.

Fire Pits and Fireplaces

Cozy Gatherings: Incorperating a fire pit or fireplace in your backyard is the best way to make the most of your outdoor space during cooler months, it provides warmth and creates a cozy atomsphere. Gather friends and family for cozy evenings around the fire, roasting marshmallows, sharing stories and enjoy the beautiful colours of autumn!

Warm Seating: Invest in comfortable, weather-resistant seating around your fire feature. Add cushions and blankets to keep everyone warm and comfortable.

Enclosed Patio

All-Season Use: An enclosed patio can allow you to enjoy your outdoor space year-round even in the coldest months with the right set up. Incorporate ambient lighting, heating, and cozy weather-resistant furnishings to create an extension of your indoor space. Or really up the ante by adding a TV, surround sound and bar within the enclosure for the perfect entertainment space.
