It's hard to believe, but the fall is upon us—whether you're ready or not. This week, we're presenting three great ideas for getting your outdoor space back-to-school ready. As a heads up, we're off next week. But we'll be back in action after Labor Day.



Patio Heaters

Given that we're all confined to home now more than ever, patio heaters are the perfect way to enjoy your backyard into the fall — and add square footage to your usual living space when the temperatures dip. And now is the time to buy one, even if it's still hot where you are; they are in high demand and going fast. Here are two of our favorites:

We love this heater's shape and stability. Powered by a 20-pound propane tank, which can be easily sourced at your local hardware store, it has a 42,000-BTU output that is sure to help fight off the chill of cooler autumn days and nights.

Electric heaters tend to be slightly less powerful than propane models, making them a great choice for smaller spaces, especially if those spaces are covered — like a porch or pergola. We like this telescoping option from Fire Sense.

Outdoor Pillows

A few well-placed cushions can make seating for school or work so much more inviting. These outdoor-friendly pillows are an easy and affordable way to soften up your space.

We love the geometric pattern and neutral color palette that will let the garden's autumn colors shine.

There's something about a black buffalo check that feels fresh and crisp, plus it goes well with just about anything. This pattern would cozy up nicely with a throw blanket, too.

These warm, floral-printed pillows from The Company Store will put you in an autumn state of mind. Grab a mug of cider and relax.

Autumn Annuals

As flowering perennials die down for the season, filling in beds with fall-flowering annuals can keep your garden blooming a bit longer. We suggest starting sooner rather than later. Because of COVID-19, there are significantly fewer plants — particularly annuals — and supplies are limited. Your best bet is to shop the nurseries in the first two weeks of September.

Celosia is available in lovely shades of red, orange, yellow, and pink. We recommend mixing it into a sunny area with ornamental grasses.

Fall-Blooming Pansies

Pansies aren't just for spring. They are also an excellent annual for fall planting projects. Look for burgundy varieties for an autumnal feel.

Purple Fountain Grass

We sing the praises of ornamental grasses year-round. But purple fountain grass is one of our fall favorites. Plant some as the centerpiece of a container arrangement or a window box.

The Chiefs haven't been able to keep anyone at Mut 22 coins bay this season. They've given up the most points and yards in the NFL over the last four weeks. The Bills are on the other on the other hand, have surrendered the fewest points in the NFL this season (just 11 points in a game) and outscored their three closest opponents with a score of 118-21. The Bills have also thrown two shutouts over the initial four weeks. This is a feat that is nearly unheard of in NFL history.
