Falling for Fall in Style
We all know the saying, “If you don’t stand for something you’ll fall for anything.” Like falling for that old excuse that your backyard with its cracked concrete and broken awnings is “not that bad.” Or falling for that old “next year I’ll redo my outdoor living areas” notion that somehow gets passed on to the next year, and the next. And of course, not standing up for what you deserve, and falling for that self-deprecating trick of “I don’t have that kind of money” myth when there are many financing offers available that put payments off and eliminate interest.
Even with fall directly upon us, its not too late to stand for something and make big things happen around your home’s outdoor living spaces. Big things that are affordable, and can be done, start to finish in just days, meaning you can enjoy them now, not just next spring or summer. These might include colorful earth tone walkways, retaining walls, conversation circles with water features...all of which give you a reason to stand proudly as you show off your beautiful surroundings to guests or just bask in their glow by yourself.
On the other hand, if you’re going to fall for something, fall for something that adds function and beauty at the same time. Some great ideas to fall for right now include:
- An outdoor gas or wood fire pit for added warmth, ambiance, and style - perfect for crisp fall and winter evenings no matter where you live.
- A BBQ island for simmering stews, roasting veggies, and cooking out under the stars.
- Terra cotta, earth tone paving stones for garden walls that divide your yard into various sitting “rooms” and add style, color and sophistication.
With all the products, colors, textures and options in outdoor living systems currently available you’ll be able to add joy, beauty and value to your home for many Autumns to come. And that is something truly worth falling for!
