Tips to Get Outdoor Living Spaces Ready for Fall

After the long summer, the orange leaves slowly plummeting to the ground is a welcome sight. Finally, the temperatures are dropping, even in sunny Arizona! What better way to welcome Fall than to prepare your outdoor living space, so you can enjoy the scenery with your family and friends? Here are ways you can refresh your backyard for the fall season.

Deep Cleaning Your Patio


It’s important to give your patio a little scrubbing down once in a while. Fall season will bring in a lot of debris and insects into your deck or patio, so it’s important to sweep them off as often as you can. Use a pressure washer to deep clean wood or tile flooring with difficult stains. But remember, while pressure washers be fine for some surfaces, it can also peel off grout between concrete and turn wood softer. So remember to keep a six-inch distance from the wood and don’t set the power too high.

Replace or Reupholster Outdoor Furniture


Create a stylish outdoor space where your guests can feel comfortable while enjoying the fall breeze. If the summer heat did a number on your upholstered outdoor furniture, consider having them reupholstered with high-quality fabric like Sunbrella. Sunbrella fabrics are waterproof, stain proof, and doesn’t fade. It’s also great for high traffic areas where you entertain guests or lounge around with family.

Slipcovers, Cushions, and Pillows


You can never go wrong with adding more comfort in your lounge area. Outdoor cushions and pillows don’t only provide comfort, they also uplift the space if you use colorful fabric. Slipcovers are also a great way of protecting your furniture while keeping it comfy. One trick is to make sure you use contrasting colors. For example, if you’re using blue slipcovers, orange and yellow pillows can provide a striking contrast. Making use of patterns against plains is also a must!

Get Your Lawn Ready for Fall


Raking leaves and keeping your lawn clean may sound tedious, but it’s necessary. By raking leaves, you’re allowing your lawn to breathe. Piles of moist leaves may invite pests and insects, and this is why you should never miss cleaning your lawn. You can also turn fallen leaves into mulch to fertilize bare soil. Your pool also needs regular cleaning if it’s not covered. Pruning shrubs and branches can also help prevent more debris from falling into your pool or deck.

Why Sunbrella is Perfect for Indoor or Outdoor Upholstery and Drapery

In the fall months, there is nothing better than sitting in your patio, enjoying the fresh air, or cozying up indoors while enjoying a hot drink. You wouldn’t want to spoil moments like this with scratchy seats and dull drapery.

Choosing a good fabric for indoor or outdoor use is the key to being comfortable in any part of your home. Sunbrella is a versatile fabric that does just that. Here are the reasons why we love Sunbrella, and so should you!

Easy to clean


Outdoor parties are expected to get your furniture some stains. With Sunbrella, there’s no reason to cry over spilled wine. Sunbrella fabrics are made of a plastic substance called acrylic. It is less absorbent than cloth which makes it easier to clean and does not leave permanent stains. Check Sunbrella’s stain chart to remove that unwanted dirt efficiently.

More Comfortable


Sunbrella is great for a lot of things – grill covers, awnings, slipcovers. But the best use for this fabric is for cushions, pillows, couches, and chairs. In short, it’s made for comfort. It is made with acrylic fabric that has a softer feel than other outdoor fabrics.

Sunbrella for Outdoor Upholstery

Everyone wants to keep up with the trends when it comes to the look of our living spaces, even patio furniture, considering how much time is spent outside enjoying the weather. We want it to be attractive and inviting.  Choosing the right material for your outdoor furniture cushion covers can make or break the space. Materials vary from color, to fabric type, and the usage. So let us focus on some tips in deciding what material to use for outdoor upholstery. After all, quality is very important because you want it to last. Sunbrella is the most trusted outdoor fabric, known for it’s resilience to harsh weather, that you can use for your outdoor upholstery. Find out why.

What is Sunbrella?

Sunbrella is an outdoor fabric that is made of 100% Acrylic Fiber. Acrylic fiber has the ability to dry quickly from moisture. It also has flexible aesthetics: wool-like, cotton-like, and blended appearance. Unlike other fabrics, Sunbrella can be easily cleaned. Think of the benefits that you can get out of this material!

Water Resistant

Since it is a high quality outdoor fabric, rest assured that you don’t only get to use it as a shade protector but you can also use it as a roof when it rains (umbrellas, canopies, etc). Aside from that, this fabric can be used as fabric for your cushion in your outdoor furniture. So even if you leave your cushion when the rain pours, they are safe.

Stain Resistant

Cleaning fabric, especially on furniture can be a pain to clean. But if the fabric that you are using for your furniture is sunbrella, you don’t have to worry out about stains. You can simply clean it by spraying it with water and it rinses away those spills. Saving you time and money!

Fade Resistant

Outdoor furniture is exposed to harsh weather conditions, like rain or sun. When fabric is too exposed they damage easily. Fading is probably the most common problem in locations with a lot of sun. Since Sunbrella fabric is made up of dyed acrylic fiber, it is believed to produce a long-lasting color to your fabric. Maintaining its attractiveness will never be an issue.

Mildew and Mold Proof

Another concern with our outdoor furniture is dust, moisture, or organic debris, since the cushions are left outside. Leave it to Sunbrella. Sunbrella is also mildew resistant, cleaning this fabric with a mixture of water/bleach will never cause the colors of the fabric to fade.

Easy to Clean

With all the benefits mentioned above, it is clear that Sunbrella is very easy to clean. Its properties make it easy to spray and wipe away any mess or spills. You just need water, bleach and soap, then you are done.

What do we do for our customers?

At Fabrics That Go, we always want the best for our customers. We make sure that when they bring in their old patio furniture or cushions for reupholstery, they bring it home with new life. When you visit the Fabrics That Go Store, check out the 255 different styles and prints.

You can change the covers anytime since our designs come with zippers. Sunbrella is the highest recommendation that we can give you when it comes to outdoor furniture, and we are happy to be your local supplier.
