4 Tips to Get Your Backyard Summer Ready

Summer is fast approaching, and that means lazy weekend afternoons and fun-filled nights enjoying your outdoor space. Is your backyard lacking that welcoming feel? Take the time to get ready now, and you’ll soon get your backyard summer ready!

1. It May Take a Little Elbow Grease to Get Your Backyard Summer Ready

It’s that time of year … when everyone is getting their space into tip-top shape. Dirt, pollen, and dust have probably collected on your patio furniture and other outdoor surfaces. A quick spray with a pressure washer or garden hose with the appropriate cleaner can really help your backyard area look sparkling clean.

2. Backyards are Better with a Carpet of Lush, Green Grass 

Nothing says that a backyard is ready for summer like a lawn full of fresh green grass. You can hire a professional if your yard is in bad shape, or you can DIY it back to health. Here’s how:

  • – Rake away dead leaves
  • – Aerate the soil
  • – Weed your garden and feed your grass
  • – Avoid cutting your lawn too short
  • – Water early in the morning two to three times a week

3. Freshen Up Your Spa

Has it been a while since you cleaned and drained your spa? Every 3-4 months, so typically once a season, your hot tub needs a good clean. Check on your filtration system, drain and clean, refill and balance chemicals, and scrub the outside of the cabinet. It’s also a good idea to make sure your hot tub doesn’t need a replacement cover

4. Grow it all Together

Are there areas in your backyard that could benefit from some greenery? Planted pots on your patio, around your hot tub, or lining walkways are an easy and beautiful way to spruce up your yard space. It doesn’t have to be all flowers either. Heat and drought-resistant plants are perfect for summer in Texas, and you can even add herbs for some aromatherapy as you soak in your hot tub or sit on your patio.
