Prepping for the Fall Season

August 13, 2020 Outdoor GreatRoom Company

As the days of summer are coming to an end, the beautiful fall season is about to begin. Instead of lathering on sunscreen, bathing in the sun, and swimming on the lake, the perfect fall weather is an invitation to enjoy the outdoors in a different way. Here are some helpful tips and ideas in prepping for the cozy days of autumn:


A Must-Have for Combatting Cooler Weather

Prepping for the autumn temperatures wouldn’t be complete without having a strong source of heat in your outdoor living area. If you enjoy sitting outside but are always on the go, a gas fire pit table is an ideal way to maximize your time in the midst of a busy schedule. While a wood-stoked fire takes some time to set up and leaves you smelling like smoke, a liquid propane or natural gas fire table turns on at the flip-of-a-switch and can be safely shut off without the lingering of smoke afterwards. A wide variety of colors, shapes, and sizes available allows you to find a gas fire pit that is perfect for your own unique backyard design.


Heating Up, Not Cooling Off

While an iced tea or glass of cold water may have been the go-to during the hot summer days, the cooler temperatures of fall opens the door for a new way to relax and enjoy your outdoor experience. There is something truly wonderful about the idea of snuggling up with a blanket and sipping coffee, tea, or hot apple cider on a cooler day while sitting outside on your weatherproof furniture. With the vibrant colors of autumn surrounding you patio, deck, or porch, you’ll have no absence of wonder as you appreciate the new landscape of fall colors. Tag on a warm and inviting outdoor gas fire pit and you’ll have yourself the most relaxing spot in the house!

Autumn Activities for All to Enjoy

The many opportunities and holidays of fall allow for families and friends to truly embrace this unique outdoor season. Plan ahead for the fall by scheduling out days of fun for you and your family. If your family enjoys activities focused on nature, visiting your local orchard is the way to go! There is no limit to the fun you will have as you spend a day picking apples, finding the perfect pumpkin for carving, and trying to get out of a challenging corn maze.

The fun doesn’t have to stop once the sun starts to set. Gather around a gas fire pit with friends and family to create memories that will last a lifetime. Sharing stories of the past, roasting marshmallows, and keeping warm with pillows, blankets, and a fire are a few things that will surely give you a night to remember.

Football Season is Upon Us!

The many months of anticipation and waiting is finally over as the 2020-2021 football season is about to begin. While things may be different this year, there's no stopping die-hard fans from blocking out their Sunday to watch their team play. Homegating, or tailgating at home rather than in a parking lot, will be a popular alternative for fans this football season.

If you’re looking to invest in your outdoor room, a completely custom outdoor kitchen is an add-on that will help create the perfect homegating experience. As friends and family come over for the day, an outdoor kitchen decked out with a TV, grill, a gas fire pit, and a bar is a sure winner for watching football games. Be sure to have the fridge stocked with plenty of beer, brats, and burgers for a classic way to celebrate the football season.


Revamping Your Outdoor Living Area

Going into a new season is the best excuse for swapping out your summer decorations with a new set of fall-themed accessories and products. Embracing a color pallet of orange, yellow, maroon, and hunter green is a classic way to incorporate fall colors into your outdoor area. A variety of tree stumps, a wreath, some pumpkins, and plants are a few ideas to get you started in creating the ultimate outdoor display. Along with adding in some new decorations, perhaps what your outdoor living area needs is a new and beautiful centerpiece. A gas fire feature, whether it be a round gas fire pit or rectangular fire table, is a sure way to stun your guests while providing warmth for the cooler season of fall.
