From hosting an oyster roast, to an outdoor dinner toast, autumn is full of outdoor living opportunities!

Outdoor Fire PitCentral South Carolina’s mild climate allows us to enjoy the outdoors well into the late fall and beyond. Warm winter days, and the occasional “Indian Summer,” extend our chances to soak up the sun on the backyard deck, or enjoy brunch on the screened porch. These are the  times we often love the most; out of the ordinary and flowing against the grain of the typical outdoor living season when we are able to toast marshmallows over the outdoor fire pit in January, or enjoy a glass of wine with friends nestled beside the outdoor fireplace in late November! It almost seems unfair to those who live in less friendly climates, doesn’t it?  Thus is the glory of living in the South!

A few ideas to make fall fabulous:

  • archadeck experienceSit down and stay awhile – You can take full advantage of the cooler season by creating a cozy outdoor space where you can relax and take time to experience the aromas, sounds and colors of autumn. A good way to achieve this feeling is to think about seating. For example, consider a patio with a integrated seating or retaining wall which helps define your space and offers casual seating. Ample outdoor furnishings on your porch or deck are also a crowd pleaser. Comfortable seating is always key to enjoyment in your space and means you and your guests will be more likely to linger. Sofas and chairs with removable cushions made of higher-quality outdoor fabric will hold up to the elements and are a worthwhile investment returning years of enjoyment.

Consider adding a pergola or covered porch to your deck or patio. Unlike summer, when the need for covered areas to provide shade is critical, sunny days in autumn are much more welcome.

Today’s wide range of outdoor dining amenities make it effortless. Outdoor kitchens are becoming more and more common paired with patios, porches and decks. Outdoor fire features offer a great way to introduce food into your autumn celebration. From roasting marshmallows over the fire pit, to hosting an oyster roast on the patio and enjoying an after dinner toast, autumn is full of outdoor living opportunities!
