Don’t let the shorter, cooler, days keep you and your family from enjoying time together outdoors. Now, with the help of outdoor structures and fire pits, you can keep the summer outdoor fun going throughout the fall and winter. 

Adding a pergola structure to your outdoor landscaping is one way to keep the outdoor fun going all year long. When you have A.M. Woodland Outdoor Design add a pergola to your landscaping, you will have the option of adding a roof. They are a great way to keep the rain and snow out, and the heat below in. 

There are also many different style options for you to choose from when deciding what kind of roof you want your pergola to have. We can install a retractable canopy that can be opened by either a crank or a remote. We can also install a Plexiglass cover to go over the top. These roofs are great for letting the sunshine and warmth into your shelter during the summer, and keeping the rain, snow, and cold out during the winter. 

Another great option to keep your family fun going outdoors during the colder months is to install a heat source in your structure. A patio heater is a great option and easy to install. The heaters are powered by propane or electricity, so all you have to do is flip a switch, and you’ll have heat. 

One final thing you could do to help make your pergola cold-weather friendly is to add warm textiles and winter-friendly furniture. You’ll want to shy away from cold stone seating or plastic chairs, as these will not keep your body warm. Instead, find cushions to place on your chairs, and keep soft, cozy blankets nearby. 

If a pergola isn’t for you, don’t worry, there are other options. Another great element that you could add to your landscaping that will give you an outdoor space during the colder months is an outdoor fireplace. Fireplaces will provide you with a lot of heat, as well as add a focal point in your landscaping. 

There are plenty of options for you to choose from if being outside during cooler months is important to you. 

We have skilled craftsmen at A.M. Woodland that can create a space that will draw your family outside and keep them together throughout the day, even during the colder months.
