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.
