4 Do It Yourself Projects To Spice Up Your Patio For Fall

Fall is overwhelmingly popular in the “favorite season” category, and for good reason. Something about the cool air and sweet scents leave us pining for fall when we’ve had enough of summer’s heat.


One of the best parts of fall (other than buying all the fall scented candles you can carry) is the opportunity to freshen up our home décor, starting with the exterior.


Get your manufactured home porch or patio ready for the season with these simple do it yourself projects. Having your own space to get creative is a major perk of homeownership, so take the opportunity to get a little festive this fall.

Add festive color to your patio with a planter full of pansies or mums. You can even use different colored rope or twine to wrap around the tires to match your patio's color scheme.


Place a couple of the planters along the edges of your patio, or if you have a porch, place a large tire planter on each side of the stairway to add some color to the exterior.
