Summer is here!

School is out, the weather is warm which means it is the perfect time to play outside with your family! In this blog we are going to review a few tips to get your backyard in tip top shape with just bit of elbow grease and perhaps a trip to your local Lowe’s or Home Depot.

Wash it down…

After the winter it is always amazing how much dirt, leaves and dust can accumulate in an area. Grab the hose and push broom and give your backyard patio a good wash and scrub down!

Clean out the planters…

Many people think that landscape once in place is there to stay. Few things could be further from the truth. Grab your clippers and trim your unruly bushes! Get them back down to size and you will be amazed at how much of a difference that makes for your yard.

Get rid of the sun bleached and broken stuff…

It’s no joke that the sun is harsh – and it can ruin things as it bakes year after year. Evaluate what needs to be replaced. If lawn chairs are broken – send them to the trash and get some new ones. For some extra fun add some colorful new outdoor pillows!

Get some fresh mulch…

Head to your local Home Depot or Lowe’s and grab a few bags of fresh mulch. You will be amazed at how this instantly freshens up your planters!
