Fall is here! Of course, here in Florida, we may be missing some of the tell-tale signs of the season so far—the chill in the air, colorful leaves on the ground—but there are still plenty of fun and functional ways to usher in the season, Sunshine State-style. Just read on to see some of our top ideas.
Add a pool enclosure for a clean, carefree yard
As the trusted experts on pool enclosures in Florida, we know the positive impact these structures can have on your pool, deck and entire backyard! Choose a color and style that suits your unique backyard décor scheme and design preferences, then reap the big benefits like reduced seeds and leaves dirtying your pool (meaning more time spent on swimming, and less on skimming), less chemical evaporation and an overall more relaxing environment.
Consider a sunroom or patio cover for added entertaining space
Here in Florida, fall is one of the most beautiful times of year to be outdoors! Take advantage of crisp weather and blue skies by enjoying family meals al fresco, or even enjoying a socially distant get-together with a friend and a couple of lawn chairs. A patio cover, pergola or sunroom are a few options to consider depending on your unique needs.
Update your furniture
One of the biggest benefits of fall in Florida is a switch from wet, humid weather to generally crisper, more pleasant air. If your outdoor furniture has seen better days thanks to a wet, muggy summer, the transition to fall can be a good opportunity to replace your cushions and pillows for a more comfortable, functional space.
Start an herb and veggie garden
Fall is synonymous with delicious flavors and family meals! Make them even better with the help of home-grown herbs and veggies from your very own garden. You don’t need much space or equipment to get started! Simply devote a corner of your yard or patio to a small trellis or patch of pots where you can experiment with aromatic herbs like mint, basil, rosemary and more.
Don’t forget about storm protection
Despite the fun fall festivities on their way, we should not forget that Florida is, technically, still in the midst of hurricane season until the end of November. That means it is never a bad time to evaluate your home’s current storm protection and, if needed, consider an upgrade to a safer, more streamlined solution. White Aluminum’s Florida replacement windows and storm shutters are two options you can learn more about as you prepare your home for fall!
