Is your patio prepped for summer fun? Memorial Day is right around the corner. Kick-off the summer season right. With a bit of pre-Memorial Day patio prep, you can kick back and enjoy the warmer weather with your family, spending the holiday weekend relaxing together beneath your home pergola.
How To Prepare Your Patio for Summer Fun
These five patio prepping tips will put you on the right track for a relaxing summer.
- Tidy Up
If you’re lagging in the spring cleaning department, play a bit of catch up, tidying up your patio and yard in anticipation of summer fun. This maintenance often takes longer than you’d expect, so plan a few weeks ahead of holiday activities to ensure you’ll have ample time to clear leaves and twigs, manage mold, clean and prep your grill, and replace broken items. Fortunately, StruXure aluminum pergolas require minimal care. You can check this off your to-do list fast, with a quick spray of the hose.
- Add a Few Festive Decorations & Plants
Spice up your patio décor with festive red, white and blue decorations to honor those who have served, including a few items such as throw pillows, table cloths, and colorful containers of flowers.
- Take Patio Furnishings Out of Storage
Remove furnishings from storage, replacing worn pieces. After all, your goal is a cozy, functional patio space where you can relax! Be sure you have sufficient, comfortable seating for each family member, including a variety of options such as an outdoor couch, lounger, or sectional, coffee and side tables.
- Ensure Shelter from the Summer Sun
The addition of reliable shelter from the hot, overpowering Denver sun is crucial to a functional outdoor space. Fortunately, StruXure adjustable louvered pergolas have you covered. Dial-in the perfect amount of shade on your custom-built pergola, ensuring a pleasant patio experience. Should afternoon thunderstorms come, seal out rain quickly with the quick touch of a button. After sun sets, easily open your louvered pergola to increase circulation and take in the starlit sky.
- Plan a Few Fun Activities for the Family
Enjoying a good conversation with your family is wonderful. However, fun activities are also an excellent way to keep everyone engaged and make lasting memories. Depending on the size of your space, you can include options from classic games like checkers, Jenga, and Uno to a ping pong, shuffleboard, or foosball tournament.
