One of the first things to consider is the area you are desiring to keep warm on those fall evenings. If you are in a condo or an apartment with just a small patio area to provide heat, maybe a table top patio heater is the right ticket. If your patio covers several hundred square feet, then you might even have to have more than one larger patio heater. Or just maybe, it’s just you and you like to read a book before bedtime and only need heat right where you sit in that all-weather wicker rocker, then think about a directional patio heater. So the first choice you need to make, is how big an area do you need to heat.

These can cope with a certain amount of cracking in the underlying concrete, without being affected. They're easy to install by just clicking them into place. Once laid, they stay firmly in place and don't need any special surface preparation, adhesives or other fixings. They have a plastic base to allow water to pass easily underneath, and to keep the wood away from the sub-surface. You can tile your whole patio area in only an hour or two.

Shade sails can be custom made to any size you require, or you can combine a number of smaller ones to cover a larger area (the solution you choose will depend partly on your site, and partly on your budget). Shade sails work by a tension system - the sails, often triangular in shape, are anchored to tension points which may be attached to the walls of the dwelling or to the tops of poles sunk into the ground. They have the advantage of being portable: if you sell your home, you can move the sail to your new home and reinstall it for the price of new tension points.

Poinsettias are in season and their vibrant red, white or pink hues, combined with their green leaves, are enough to add color to any gray and dismal outdoor area. Go to your local supermarket or nursery and stock up on a few of these plants. You can keep them in containers or plant beds outside, but bring them back inside or cover them up if the outdoor temperatures get extremely cold or if a freeze is expected. Be sure to keep them away from pets though. Poinsettias are only mildly toxic to animals, but it's better safe than sorry!

These options are quickly and easily performed by a specialized contractor.

The cloths are long lasting and tough, making damage from wind or storm unlikely. The closeness of the weave creates different levels of protection against the sun, giving the consumer yet more choice about the amount of protection desired - and cost, too.
