The earthy colours of fall in Calgary can inspire a warm, cozy atmosphere. We have some great ideas for infusing your outdoor space with the feeling of autumn. Your outdoor landscaping can be as modern or traditional as you like. The important thing is that they coexist harmoniously with the existing style of your outdoor space.
The biggest change you can make to your patio or porch to incorporate fall is by adding the bright oranges, reds and rustic green colours to your space. You can bring in these colours with furniture cushions, accent pillows, lanterns, candles, tablecloths and potted flowers.
To use the colours of harvest in a more organic way, place brightly coloured pumpkins and squashes around your patio. You can also place wheat, straw or cranberries in vases to make fall-inspired table decorations. Place these items around your entryway to create a warm welcome from your home to guests.
The beautiful scenery of fall deserves to be taken in by everyone. Take this opportunity to relax in your outdoor space before the cold weather sets in, and enjoy the sights and sounds of the changing leaves rustling around your backyard.
Remember to keep your warm wool blankets close by, and your thermos loaded with some delicious hot chocolate. Fall in Calgary can be chilly, but that shouldn’t prevent you from enjoying your wonderfully landscaped backyard.
