From the mountains to the coast, North Carolina is slowly transitioning to cooler temperatures and a beautiful palette of reds and yellows, making autumn one of our favorite seasons. Now is the perfect time to take advantage of your Capitol City Homes’ backyard with these outdoor must-haves for a wonderfully unforgettable fall.
Dining sets — what better way to celebrate the season than with a new dining set for fall meals outside? From small square four seaters to large tables for the whole family, a place to gather with friends and family is the perfect addition to your backyard.
Conversation sets — for a more intimate outdoor seating set up, grab a pre-assembled conversation set that is perfect for small spaces or smaller households.
Chaise lounges — get cozy with a book and blanket on those cool autumn nights or curl up with a cup of coffee on those dewy fall mornings.
Benches — no matter your aesthetic, an outdoor bench not only adds a beautiful piece of furniture to your yard, but an ideal place to read a book, bird watch, or simply sit and enjoy the fresh outdoor air.
Garden lights — illuminate your garden with solar powered pathway lights, string lights, fun light-up statues, and more.
Bird baths/feeders/houses — an outdoor must-have and garden essential! Decorate your yard and house your local wildlife simultaneously.
Fire pits — nothing says fall quite like a bonfire. Grab a fire pit to sit around on those chilly nights telling ghost stories, listening to music, and laughing.
Patio heaters — add some warmth without the hassle of a fire. Perfect for sunrooms or enclosed porches.
Chimineas — bring your beloved fireplace outside with a unique, decorative chiminea. Often enclosed on all or most sides, chimineas differ from fire pits mainly by how much of the fire is exposed.
Cooking & Grilling
Grills —if your family is big on grilled food, a good grill is absolutely worth the investment. However, there are TONS of options. Do some research on the different types of grills and get one that makes the most sense for what you’ll be using it for most often.
Smokers — nothing says you live in North Carolina quite like owning a smoker. For all the barbeque and meat lovers, a smoker can up your meat game tenfold.
Fryers — a must-have for game days, holidays, or big family gatherings. Fry up some wings, host a broil, or even deep fry a turkey...the possibilities are endless!
Wind chimes — if you need a good place to start with your outdoor living improvement, adding something as simple as a wind chime is the perfect place to start. What’s more beautiful than sounds made from the world around us?
Statues — statues and sculptures allow you to add some character to your yard! From gnomes to seasonal decor, let your personality shine through your garden.
Stepping stones — a practical yet also ornamental addition to your yard. Go with something modern and simplistic or add a touch of color and fun.
Edison lights — for that quintessential outdoor look, string Edison lights above your porch and instantly create your own starry night.
Rugs — bring the comfort of the indoors outside with a rug that can stand up to the elements while also keeping your feet warm and cozy.
Throws/blankets — top it all off with a couple of soft, warm throws or blankets to snuggle under when the temperatures turn brisk.
No matter the size of your outdoor area, making the most of the space will help encourage you and your family to spend time outside during the most beautiful North Carolina months. Be sure to follow Capitol City Homes on Instagram and tag us in all of your backyard adventures!
