    Outdoor Decorating Tips For Fall

    Just because it’s a little colder outside doesn’t mean it’s time to shut the door on your backyard and wait for spring! Fall is a spectacular time of the year to enjoy your outdoor living space. So what’s the best way to accessorize your space for fall? Here’s a few easy ways to create the perfect autumn atmosphere:

    The first step is to design your patio space like any indoor living space when you are coming up with your concept. That means thinking about furnishings, lighting, colour, accents and design flow – but also keeping in mind maintenance, particularly for an all-season space. Then comes the fun part!

    Autumn Backyard Design Tips

    Update with fall colours and textures

    Cushions are a great way to add comfort as well as infuse colour into your outdoor spaces. For fall, you can switch them up with rich hues and create a totally new design feel without having to spend a lot of money. When you are shopping, make sure you select cushions with an outdoor fabric that is UV and water resistant for added durability.

    Find foliage for the season

    There are lots of plant and flower options that capture the feeling of fall with classic autumn hues of orange, gold, russet, and bronze. Head over to your local nursery and discover the selection of durable arrangements and planters that will highlight the warmth of the season.

    Add-in lighting accents

    With shorter days, you will undeniably need to add in a heater and lighting to keep your patio space functional during the fall season. Include an array of outdoor lighting by starting with porch lights that illuminate access to the house and provide ambient lighting. For dining and conversation zones, candlelight, wall mount downlights, or dimmable electric lamps create a relaxed mood. Steps and walkways should be illuminated for safety. You can also use solar-powered lights or low voltage lights to add drama and interest to the landscape and to highlight paths. Combine a mix of lighting sources to make your backyard getaway a magical place after dark.

    Invest in a hot tub

    For long, relaxing soaks at the start, middle, or end of the day, a Beachcomber Hot Tub is your must-have, can’t live without accessory. There’s no feeling like stepping out in the cool crisp air, and slipping into the warm massaging waters.

  • Does Your Hot Tub Need A Pergola?

    Does Your Hot Tub Need A Pergola?

    When you invest in a hot tub, you want to ensure you have the perfect setting in your backyard to enjoy it. To really make your hot tub the star of your home, adding a pergola might be an investment you should consider making.

    Consider pairing a pergola with your hot tub.


    To start, these architectural designs can make an impressive statement. A pergola creates a visual focal point and can help you anchor the space. It also allows you to blend in natural elements by adding vines and plants throughout. You can also add water resistant fabric or a thin clear plastic roof for further protection against the elements. This way you are able to ensure you will be getting maximum year-round usage of your hot tub, in any weather conditions.


    Other advantages of this installation over open patios is that added privacy from the neighbours. There’s nothing worse than jumping into your hot tub to relax or enjoy quality time with your loved ones, only to be staring right at the people next door. Depending on the style of pergola you choose, and the plants you add along the sides, you can create an oasis that is protected from unwanted onlookers.


    If you are planning on hosting parties in the backyard, this can also add extra space for seating and lounging outside of the hot tub, as well as additional storage for supplies and towels.


    When pairing a pergola with your hot tub and your home, try to find one that aesthetically compliments the design, to achieve a unified look. Check out more easy ways on how to landscape around a hot tub and be sure to ask your local dealers on how to find a design that best compliments the functionality and visual style of your space.
