Summer is just around the corner which means it’s time to get ready for outdoor entertaining, evening lounging, and barbecues! To get ready for patio season, we have put together some tips that will give you a head start.
Post-Winter Clean Up & Inspection
First, and most importantly, doing a maintenance check and a post-winter clean-up is a crucial starting point. This involves removing dead branches and pruning and re-planting where necessary. While doing so, make sure to conduct a critter check – unwanted guests should not partake in your outdoor entertaining. Post-winter cleaning should also include getting your grill ready for the season to make sure it is in a good working state before you make any dinner plans.
After completing all the cleaning and inspecting, it’s time to bring out your patio furniture. Once again, it will most likely need some cleaning after months of being in storage. When putting together your outdoor space, remember that the same rules apply to outdoor seating areas as they do indoors. Make sure you have a focal point such as a nice view, a fire pit, or a colourful patio rug, around which you will centre your patio furniture.
Personalizing Your Space
Don’t forget to add personality and style to your patio! A great way of doing so is by adding a patio rug to your outdoor space. Not only will it add colour, but it will tie your whole space together. If your goal is to add some vibrancy and texture to your patio space, then we suggest our brand new Faux Grass Meets Fashion patio rugs! These beautiful outdoor rugs feature vibrant green faux grass mixed with neutral flatweave in fresh nature inspired designs.
