With steady warm weather on the horizon, there is nothing more appealing than summer days spent outside, soaking in the sunshine. To fully maximize the summer season, its time to make your backyard into a mini getaway where you can enjoy yourself!
We can all agree that with the amount of time we will be spending at home this summer, it only makes sense to spruce up the backyard and make it into a mini sanctuary!
Start With a Clean Canvas

If you are someone who leaves your patio furniture outside all winter long, use this time to spray and scrub the furniture with soap and water so it is in its best condition.
Update Your Landscaping

Take some time to cut back overgrown trees and bushes, pull the weeds, and cut the lawn. It is safe to say that you can plant your flowers and herbs without hesitation, now that the warm weather is here…and hopefully not leaving anytime soon! Plant some flowers and shrubs that will compliment your backyard design, and don’t forget to add some fresh mulch.
