Preparing Your Outdoor Oasis for Spring and Summer



During the spring and summer, it’s important to keep your outdoor oasis looking fresh and vibrant. While it may not be as important in the winter because of snow and other weather phenomena, your backyard and gardens are very visible in the ample sunlight that comes with warm weather. In this article, you’ll learn the more important tips for keeping your outdoors beautiful and blooming for the summer so that you won’t be able to resist spending more time outside!

Add Festive Furniture

Having an area to spend time with friends and family is a must for a backyard. Enjoying the outdoors within the privacy of your own yard can be very enjoyable, especially when there is a convenient area already set up. Having a simple dining table or pair of sofas can be the perfect place to share a meal with loved ones.

Eliminate Bugs and Insects

Pesky bugs and insects can ruin outdoor gatherings at any moment, so it is important to purchase bug repellants. If you are interested in home remedies, there are many options to try like citronella candles, peppermint oil, and lavender. Four Seasons Sunrooms and Windows currently offer automated mesh screens that make your outdoor living environment bug and allergen free!

Set-up Lights

Although the sun sets quite late during the spring the summer, you may want to spend more time outside in the warm weather even after it gets dark. To keep your oasis bright, add some outdoor lights. String lights, tiki torches, outdoor sconces, LED lights, and candles are wonderful options.

Mow Your Lawn

Keeping your lawn tidy is a vital part of preparing your yard for the spring and summer. It must first be aerated to allow important nutrients to get to the grassroots. Then excess thatch must be removed to prevent it from keeping water from reaching roots. Finally, fertilize your yard with a nitrogen-rich fertilizer, water it every week, and mow it systematically. If preferred, hire somebody to mow it for you, but don’t forget to keep your lawn tamed!

Purchase a Fire Pit

Putting a fire pit in your yard is a brilliant idea, as it can provide light, warmth, and even smores! There are a variety of options, like wood-burning and gas pits. Plus, if you don’t want to keep your firepit outside all year you can purchase a portable one to bring it inside during the winter.

Start a Garden

Whether you want to plant stunning flowers or a nutritious garden, gardening can be a beautiful and fulfilling hobby. Planting different types of flowers can add a pleasant pop of color to a dull yard, and vegetables can improve your diet while adding flavor to a backyard.
