Easy Amazon buys to spruce up your outdoor space for fall

You’ll love spending time outside with these fresh additions to your space

Are you ready for fall? You’re probably looking forward to putting your feet up outside and enjoying the cooler air. After a long summer, though, your outdoor space might benefit from a refresh, just like your interior. If your patio feels less like an oasis and more like an “oh no,” a few simple swaps and upgrades can transform your space into an outdoor escape you’ll love spending time in.

Outdoor upgrades for fall

Adding plants is one of the easiest ways to elevate your outdoor space. If you have a backyard, plant fall-flowering perennials and bulbs in your garden. You can also grow bulbs in containers on a patio, along with cold-tolerant annuals such as pansies, snapdragons or petunias.

If you like hosting outdoor gatherings, consider adding more seating or other comforts. Sturdy blankets or patio heaters help guests feel cozy even after sunset. Ottomans can often double as extra seating. A new outdoor rug can also help tie an outdoor space together.

Another easy and affordable outdoor upgrade is lighting. Cluster hurricane candle holders on your patio table or line a pathway with solar-powered lights. String lights with vintage-style bulbs can be strung through trees, around doorways or under pergolas. If you live in a particularly sunny area, look for solar-powered lights, which can help you reduce power consumption and save you the hassle of finding an outlet.
