Helpful Tips to Get Your Backyard Ready for Summer Enjoyment

If you're like the majority of the population, your backyard is probably in poor shape after this past winter. And as summer quickly approaches, the clock is ticking for you to get things in order in time for your backyard festivities. If you are confused as to where to begin, heed these helpful tips to get you on your way.

Clean and Maintain Your Pool and Hot Tub

According to Evercare Pool & Spa, maintaining your hot tub regularly helps keep an eye on wear and tear, ensures the water is sanitized, and if any parts need to be replaced so your hot tub can function properly, so you should treat it at the top of the season. Once the water is drained, remove all leaves and debris before brushing and vacuuming it clean. Then, you can check the pool's functionality by assessing its circulation, checking its filter, and issuing a shock treatment to get rid of harmful components.

Fix Up the Patio Furniture

Purchasing new patio furniture is always an option, but according to Five Star Painting, it is more cost-efficient to just mend what you already have. Chances are, tightening up a loose screw, replacing chair legs, restringing the seating area, and deep cleaning the surfaces will extend the life of just about any bit of furniture. A concoction of baking soda and vinegar will go a long way as a stain remover, and elbow grease can combat rust. You can also dress up any imperfections using outdoor rugs, pillows, slipcovers, and spray paint.

Tidy Up the Yard

You can add all of the decorations that you want, but if your yard resembles a jungle, no one will trust getting too comfortable at your home. You can begin to diffuse the chaos by giving it an old fashion mow and picking up any odds and ends that are lying around. Once the grass is at a safe level, according to City Green Services, you can make things a bit more appealing by doing some landscaping, such as shaping the bushes, trimming the trees, and adding colorful flowers.

It is best to get started immediately as the beautiful springtime weather is the wisest time to prepare your yard for some true fun in the sun. Also, it will give you more time to perfect its image, impressing your house guests for the months to come.
