When you think of the outdoors during the winter months, \"gray,\" \"dreary\" and \"boring\" are words that probably come to mind. But your winter patio doesn't have to be any of that! Here are some helpful winter patio decorating tips and ideas that will brighten any outdoor space:

Poinsettias are in season and their vibrant red, white or pink hues, combined with their green leaves, are enough to add color to any gray and dismal outdoor area. Go to your local supermarket or nursery and stock up on a few of these plants. You can keep them in containers or plant beds outside, but bring them back inside or cover them up if the outdoor temperatures get extremely cold or if a freeze is expected. Be sure to keep them away from pets though. Poinsettias are only mildly toxic to animals, but it's better safe than sorry!

Plus they can be a great source for sunlight. But you probably don't want your view open all the time, so window treatments are often needed for the times when you do need privacy, light control and even insulation.

Maintenance-free, grapevine can be threaded through any lattice work you might have outside or you can use white LED lights and intertwine them with the grapevines. Add sprigs of holly, juniper or boxwood to make your patio even more festive!

There are electric patio heaters that can plug directly into an outlet (but not many, unless that outlet is dedicated just for this). When it is evident that the style and power needed is more than what can be plugged in, you have to consider the cost to have an electrician run wiring just for the patio heater. And with this type, you can also be strapped to where it can be placed to provide the heat you are looking for. Some are ceiling (or rafter) mounted and their base allows for some movement to direct heat to a specific spot.

The second decision, in my opinion, is whether you want to have the patio heater just in one place and then not worry about it for years and years or have the versatility to move it where the heat is needed for any particular occasion. There are basically 3 types of patio heaters to consider. One uses propane which means from time to time you will need to fill the tank. The one thing to consider with a propane powered patio heater is the time when the party is just starting to liven up and you run out of propane in the tank. Bummer, now you have to either bring the party indoors (which there might not be enough room), don jackets (maybe some didn’t bring any) or the party breaks up because some are getting chilly and start toward home. I am not trying to talk you out of a propane patio heater, just want you to be aware of all of the possibilities if making this choice.

Do some comparison-shopping to see what you can get for what price: outdoor fireplaces can be huge or they can be small and portable. Adding a fireplace to your patio will encourage family and guests to hang out outside a little bit longer. Picture it now: the air outside is cold, but you and your family and friends are all bundled up and roasting marshmallows by the fireside. Yum! What a fun way to spend a cold winter's night!

Paver edge restraint and soldier course should be added to prevent spreading and a layer of joint sand employed, which is to be swept into the cracks. Polymeric sand is suggested, which will harden after it has been added. Although not mandatory, this is a good idea to curtail insects \"moving\" the joint sand and week growth in the cracks in the patio.
