Making the Most of Your Backyard this Summer

by 352admin 30. April 2013 04:55

The days are getting longer, the temperatures are heating up, and the backyard is calling your name. With Memorial Day and the official start of summer creeping around the corner, now is the time to make those last-minute preparations to get your yard ready for its favorite months of the year. Looking for some ideas for how to turn your backyard into a summer oasis? Here are some ways to take your yard from mediocre to magnificent.

Gazebos

Portable gazeboLooking for a shady place to relax in your yard this summer? Gazebos have a timeless look and feel about them, and they are the perfect place to hold a special event this summer. In addition to their looks, they provide much needed protection from the harsh summer sun. Our custom portable gazebos can be built with a variety of stain or paint colors to match the look and feel of your home, and the gazebos can feature benches, tables, or swings based on your needs.

Screen rooms

Portable screenroomFor anyone looking for a summer shelter that offers a bit more protection from the elements, a custom screen room might be a better fit than a gazebo. Most gazebos aren’t screened in, which could be problematic if your area is prone to pests in the warm summer months. Our portable screen rooms feature treated pine decking, steel walls, and roof framing, offering you and your family maximum comfort and protection from the elements. Our screen rooms can even feature electricity and an enclosed storage area, depending on your needs.

Landscaping

No matter how hard you try, do your plants still only make it to seedlings before they shrivel up? If you plan on spending a lot of time in the yard this year and don’t want to stare at only hardy grass, consider hiring a professional to landscape your yard. Landscapers will be able to design a yard that features plants that will thrive in your environment and can keep unruly bushes and hedges in check. Some landscaping companies can even offer water features for your yard if you’re interested in a fountain or fish pond. Just be mindful that if you have little ones, this is something you’ll need to keep an eye on while they’re playing outside.

Barbequing

It’s probably been a while since you’ve used your grill last, and there will be a few things you’ll need to do to prep for its first use of the season. First, remove the grill cover and check for any pests that might have taken up residence in the cover or the grill itself over the last few months. Next, if you have a gas grill, check the gas lines and tank to make sure that the lines are in working order and the tank is full.

To clean the grill, most people will fire it up and let the built up residue burn itself away. After you’ve let it heat up and sit, let the grill cool and scrub it down with a grill brush to remove any remaining residue. The grill will be significantly easier to clean after you’ve heated it up. If you choose, you can rub it down with oil using your grill brush.

Hmm it appears like your blog ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I had written and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I'm still new to the whole thing. Do you have any points for beginner blog writers? I'd genuinely appreciate it.

Cash till payday loans are very similar to unsecured personal loans. These advances are specially designed for those who have an emergency and have almost no time to wait to get the cash. Even top financial guru Suze Orman is advising people to think again before purchasing a house.

This time it will not be that tough for you to grab funds for your needs. On approval of the loan, funds are wired to your bank account on the very same day. Expenses beyond your budget are always unanticipated.
