Summer is the perfect season to enjoy your outdoor space. It lasts for only a few months so you might as well prep up your outdoor patio furniture for more dining, bonding and cuddling moments with your family.
As a result of the mandatory home quarantine due to the pandemic which started on the early months of 2020, most of us got the chance to do a lot of things inside our homes. To keep ourselves busy and to make each day productive, some did simple home repairs or gardening, while others venture into baking and cooking.
Since governments have enforced restrictions on outdoor activities to prevent the spread of the corona virus, we have learned how to focus on new goals and how to be creative and organized as well. Prepping for your kids’ summer activities without traveling can be done through preparing your outdoor patio.
Building a DIY Paver Walkway
Paving the walkway is one of the ways to prepare your outdoor space for the coming warm months. You may choose from a range of materials from stone, marbles or concrete. You can streamline your patio space by adding decorative borders to make it more refined. Line it with rocks or flowers or maybe create a sitting wall out of stones and bricks.
Clean the Outdoor Area
You do not want anyone slipping on mud or critiquing the weeds growing between the patio stones since spring began. Take a hose or pressure washer to your patio area and give it a thorough clean. If you do not wish to use weed killer on any growths, a weed torch or application of boiling water can be used instead. Since, the weather is clear and good during summer days, it is also about time to clean rain gutters and downspouts. However, cleaning gutters take time, so to save you the trouble it will be wise to schedule a professional deep cleaning gutter service like Clean Pro Gutter Cleaning Queens to remove those debris and obstructions and keep your gutters effectively clean and working all year.
Outdoor Patio Furniture
Choose furniture and decorations that are durable enough for outdoor use. If you want to create a romantic spot on your patio, go for sleek and elegant furniture pieces. You may use hardwood furniture but be sure to have it has the right finish to avoid premature damage due to the weather. For the children’s area, consider putting up swings, hammock and other play sets that can stimulate their physical activity, also opt for wrought iron or metal sets which will endure spills and stains.
For your decorations, keep it simple yet interesting. You may hang wind chimes or signs. You may also put up decorative lamps or lighting fixtures. To promote rest and relaxation, add flowering plants, touches of Zen such as sands and stones and a nice water fountain.
