5 Ways To Get Your Backyard Ready for Labor Day

  1. Clean Patio/Deck —Your patio or deck is where you and your guests are going to spend most of their time, so it would be wise to make sure your area is nice and clean! Over the summer, moss and mildew have most likely built up on your patio or deck — making your surface slippery and leaving ugly stains. The best solution to cleaning up your patio or deck area is by power-washing your space until you remove all the buildup and stains.
  2. Remove Broken/Furniture or Items — After a long and eventful summer, your furniture might new be as new as it once was. Along with consistent usage, the elements work to break down your items until they’re utterly useless. Furniture unusable by you or your guests does nothing but take up space reduce comfortability throughout the day. Help your guests out by getting rid of your old furniture!
  3. Set Up New Furniture — Now that you’ve gotten rid of your old furniture — you need to replace it. Good news is the most outdoor furniture is on sale by Labor Day! Meaning you replace your old furniture with brand new items at a fraction of the cost! Not to mention it will save you the hassle of getting new furniture for next summer.
  4. Hang Some Lights — With summer coming to an end, so too are those long summer nights where the sun seems to stay up forever. Now that the sun is setting earlier in the evening, it’s going to get darker. But don’t fret! You can easily prolong your outdoor activities by setting up outdoor lighting around your deck or patio. Allowing you and your guests to continue to enjoy the evening without having to struggle to see each other in the dark!
  5. Refresh Struggling Summer Plants/Flowers — You know those plants that you “swore” you were going to take care of? Well, it looks like you’re going to have to try again next summer, because your plant babies didn’t make through the season. Fortunately, you can purchase healthy new plants and flowers at your local gardening center and place them around your back yard! An easy way and affordable way to decorate is by planting in containers. They spruce up your exterior decoration and they help maintain you longevity of your new plants!
