1. Fire Pits &  Places

What with cooler weather on its way, it’s only right that you cozy up your backyard area with a stone or brick fire encasement. With a variety of styles and sizes available, there is definitely a way to keep warm this fall.

4. A Sprawling Garden

Accompany your back patio and fireplace with a gorgeous garden to enhance the colorful fall foliage. While, at this point, many plants will have to wait until spring to be planted, it’s a great idea to go ahead and begin planning for your garden’s layout and composition. Gardens are a great way to continue to transform your backyard all year long.

5. Add a Hot Tub

An often-overlooked way to stay warm when the cooler weather hits is a patio jacuzzi. Inset or out-of-ground, hot tubs can make an ordinary patio space indulgent and homey.
