Summer’s Winding Down, But Patio Season Is Still In Full Swing!

Many Bay Area homeowners associate patio season with summer. When temperatures start to cool down and daylight ends earlier, it’s time to move indoors until next spring, right? Not necessarily. While September is just a few weeks away, you can enjoy your patio right on through fall and perhaps even winter. Why not keep having friends or neighbors over for a BBQ or relaxed conversation outdoors when all you need to do is make a few small changes? Our interlocking concrete paver professionals have a few tips that will help you extend patio season for as long as you like.

If you don’t have one already, consider an outdoor fireplace or fire pit. Either will not only add warmth and light to the outdoors, but a cozy ambiance as well. Pull up a few chairs and a table for drinks or mugs of hot tea, cocoa or coffee, and soak in the warmth you only enjoy in welcoming surroundings with close friends.

Light it up. Of course you want spaces that are well lit and safe when it starts getting dark earlier, so consider some paver lights to accent steps, walkways, sitting areas and more. If you have a BBQ grill island or pergola, you’ll want to light up these areas as well.

Evening temperatures are usually tolerable well into November, especially if you have a fire pit or outdoor fireplace to keep you warm! Update your patio with one of these features, add a few hot toddy’s or other warm beverages, throw some burgers on the BBQ and invite your closest friends to keep enjoying the outdoors even when summer is over. There’s no law saying patio time comes to an end when summer does!
