Once the weather begins to warm, you and your family likely can't wait to take out your patio furniture and begin setting up your outdoor space for entertaining. However, sprucing up your backyard might take more time than you think, especially if you carelessly stored your outdoor furnishings for the winter.
There are a few ways that you can prepare your backyard for barbecues and summer parties without too much hassle. First, SheKnows.com recommends waterproofing your deck (if you have one) to eliminate the risk of slips and falls when you have guests over to your house.
After doing a little up-keeping, take the time to read the instructions on your outdoor patio furniture tags to determine how to properly clean them after a long winter in the shed. Some fabrics may be able to tolerate a standard washer, while others might simply need to be wiped down with a sponge.
Finally, Homedit.com recommends incorporating bright colors into any new patio furnishings you bring to the space. Everything from orange to ocean blue can help create a beautiful outdoor area that your family and friends will look forward to using throughout the summer.
