Getting your Patio Summer Ready



Hopefully, we have seen the last of the big winter snowstorms. As the days are getting longer and the first promising spring buds poking through the soil, now is the perfect time to start thinking about getting your patio summer-ready – whether for entertaining family, guests, or simply yourself on a relaxing day.

Spring Cleaning- Out with the Old, In with the New

The first step is to clean your patio. Sweep away loose dirt and debris and give it a thorough scrub to wash away the winter snow residue. Do your walls need a fresh coat of paint or perhaps a new summer look? Switch out or clean your winter furniture to be presentable in your outdoor environment. Wicker furniture is very summery and easy to protect from the summer elements. You can bring your patio to life with some new cushions, pillows, and throws with summer colors like yellows and blues.

Decorate Your Patio

One way to decorate your patio is gardening to brighten up the space. As winter frost begins to thaw, you should devote some time and energy to weeding your garden flowerbeds and any planters near your patio. Create vibrant summer flower pots with perennials found at Home Depot to enjoy from your patio. Lights can be a great aesthetic addition and create a cozy and serene setting. Lanterns are a great way to create an atmosphere when entertaining in the evening. Another great idea is to string fairy lights on the inside of your umbrella's open canopy. Finally, you can find decorative garden statues and small fountains in any budget that will add to the overall decor.

Preparing for Nature's Elements

Nothing beats the ability to enjoy the outdoors and not be bothered by nuisance pests and biting insects. Besides using citronella candles, you should consider installing retractable screens or windows on your patio. You are protected from bugs, UV rays, and rainstorms but still outside. Make sure outdoor furniture is weatherproof or can be protected with durable furniture covers. According to Good Housekeeping, the recommendation is to buy a new functional umbrella every year.
