Give Your Lawn a Little TLC
Obviously the weather plays a huge factor in how your yard looks, but so do you. With just a little tender loving care, your yard can look as good as new. No matter what havoc the weather has caused. Here are a few ideas to help you get started on your outdoor BBQ party prep.
Pull Out the Lawnmower
The first step to a great yard is a good trim. Run the mower over the grass, pull out the rake and you might even need to re-sod a couple dead areas. You should also check for holes or other tripping hazards before you set the kids free to roam on the grass.
Don’t Forget to Prune
Even if your grass is in great shape, all it takes is a few unruly sprigs on an overgrown bush to make the whole yard feel unkempt. If you regularly maintain your bushes, it should only take a couple minutes. If you let it go too long, expect to break a sweat before all those stragglers are gone.
Prep the Pit
Make sure your fire pit is in pristine condition by stocking wood (if it’s wood burning, of course), or wiping down any dirt or debris. Set up clean chairs and ensure everything is safe and secure.
