2. Heaters, firepits and lanterns
Powering your outdoor lighting and heating unlocks significant potential in your backyard. Propane-powered firepits are easier to ignite and have less cleanup than traditional wood firepits. PERC even says propane firepits have “all the style and no ashes.”
In addition to a firepit, lanterns and heaters can keep your backyard well-lit and warm. Using these items in your outdoor space helps keep the good times going after the sun goes down — even into the fall.
