3 Outdoor Entertainment Tips (And Recipes) Perfect For Fall

As much as we enjoy the sunshine and excitement of summer, we’re always happy to see the first signs of fall settling in. The mornings and evenings are crisp, the leaves are changing color, and we can finally bid farewell to the incessant sweating that goes hand-in-hand with humidity here in Kansas. Gorgeous fall weather encourages us to get outdoors more often, so we’ve put together a short list of things (and recipes!!) you can enjoy at home this fall!

No. 1: Get Outdoors And Get Cooking!

Whether you prefer gas or charcoal, it’s hard to beat food from a good old-fashioned cookout! With experience designing and installing outdoor grills, ovens and ranges, and smokers, the team at Topeka Landscape can help you build the outdoor kitchen of your dreams. Looking for something small and compact? Expansive and luxurious? When it comes to your ideal design, there is absolutely no limit! Check out some of our work here.

No. 2: Cozy Up By The Fire

When the sun sets and the temperature starts to drop, settling in by a warm, crackling fire is exactly what you need to wind down. Topeka Landscape specializes in gas or wood burning, mortared or modular fire pits and outdoor fire places. You can learn more about the differences and benefits of each by clicking here, and be sure to check out our work in the online photo gallery!

No. 3: Add Subtle And Effective Lighting

Outdoor lighting is a great way to maximize your time spent outdoors. Uplighting can help create depth and focal points in your landscape, while path lighting can mark boundaries and help with safety. Both are great for curb appeal, visual aesthetics, and functionality.

A really neat, new feature for some landscape lighting systems is integration with your smart phone or tablet. Our team has experience with Unique Lighting Systems® and their Light Logic™ cloud-based control systems. Be sure to ask us more about this if it interests you!
