Patio Inspiration – Get Autumn Ready!

Back to school season is upon us, with the summer months drawing to a close. At Tobermore, we hope that you have enjoyed your summer months outside, dining al fresco and making the most of the long sunny evenings.

The good news is that outdoor living doesn’t have to end when the summer is over. A well designed outdoor space can allow you to enjoy outdoor living all year round.

Tobermore landscape designer and award-winning columnist, Vanessa Drew, explains why outdoor living is no longer a seasonal trend:

“The simple addition of features such as lighting, cosy seating such as an egg chair or a gazebo allow you to enjoy your outdoor space all year round, rather than just using the area in the spring and summer months.”

With the kids back at school and less time spent in the garden, now is the perfect time to overhaul your patio area. Make the most of your extra free time and you could have your garden autumn ready within a few weeks. Autumn is also a great time for patio transformations as this can be a quiet time for paving contractors.

As your outdoor space shapes the style, character and value of your property, give this careful thought. Tobermore offer a landscape design service that can transform your driveway, patio or garden with the simple addition of paving and walling products.

Why not get in touch with Tobermore today and see how we can get your outdoor space ready for year round enjoyment!
