Outdoor Living Trends

Add cozy touches to your patio for fall entertaining.

Belgard Hardscapes, a leading provider of interlocking pavers, paving stone and wall products, wants to help you ready your outdoor spaces for cool-weather entertaining and relaxing.

Here are some ideas to bring your backyard dreams to like:

Get cozy: For enjoyment all year round, install a fireplace or firepit as a part of a backyard space to serve as a much-loved gathering spot and a complementary, permanent part of an overall outdoor living design.

Bigger is better: Depart from the traditional small cobble and brick pavers and explore large-format pavers for natural stone looks that mimic the appearance and texture of slate, flagstone or hand-chiseled rock.

Creative cohesion: Take advantage of modular units like grill islands, brick ovens, wood boxes, fireplaces and more to create a customized outdoor space that works with a patio’s existing pavers to create a harmonious, cohesive look.

Spruce it up: If a deck’s surrounding landscaping thins as the weather cools, consider planting fall perennials that bloom and thrive during these months like certain varieties of hydrangeas, mums and tall grasses.

Pull up comfort: Define a space and create extra seating with built-in seat walls and add ottomans, throw pillows and stools to create an even more inviting outdoor setting.

This season’s trends are all about taking advantage of cooling temperatures rather than fighting them, and adding simple, cozy touches to a patio area will make it the season’s go-to entertaining destination.
