The finishing touches for your deck or patio

Extend your patio season with a propane-powered patio heater that gives off 42,000 BTUs and will keep everyone toasty for up to 12 hours (7′ Propane Patio Heater, Canadian Tire, $300)

Some people prefer the crackle of real logs, but are looking for a more civilized burn. This copper and granite fire pit fits the bill (Veranda, Home Depot, $180)

Keep parties private with a new option from composite lumber. Besides the usual decking, Eon now offers fencing (shown left). Shown are Eon’s 6′ lattice-topped privacy fence panel ($160), post ($53) and post cap ($7), see Eon Outdoor Systems.

A solar lantern with a rustic finish adds a decorative (and portable) glow to patios and decks (Round Solar Lantern, Canadian Tire, $60)

An adjustable post spike is an easy way to plumb your deck post. If you insert it in the ground unevenly, you can easily true it, plus it’s ACQ-compatible (Spytek, Home Hardware, $12)

The 9′ patio umbrella shades you, and when the sun goes down, the solar panel on top powers the LED lights on the ribs (Solar Umbrella, $80; Steel Umbrella Base, $20; both Canadian Tire)
