With autumn approaching, and cooler weather with it, there are many ways to enhance your patio for enjoyment of the season. Add a heat source, such as a fireplace or electric heater, near your seating area. Put a covering over the space to protect from inclement weather, and add enclosures such as screens to block wind. A grill or miniature refrigerator will maximize your fun time outdoors. Festive lighting can elongate your enjoyment as the days grow shorter. Spruce up the patio with autumn-blooming flowers and foliage, or even an arbor for climbing plants. Other enhancements might include a television for watching football, a hot tub to stay warm, or even a patio expansion.
