Preparing your backyard for warmer weather

What better way to embrace the warmth of summer than by spending more time outside? Now’s a great time to start thinking about how you can revamp your patio space to create your own outdoor oasis or a party haven for friends and family.

Here are a few ways to prepare your backyard for warmer weather:

Update your furniture

If you plan on hosting a few gatherings this summer, make sure you have enough seating to accommodate guests. With enough furniture, you can make everyone feel comfortable and even encourage more conversation throughout the night.

Tend the greenery

Make sure to revive your plants, flowers and other greenery after the cold, dreary season. Taking advantage of natural elements is a simple way to accentuate an outdoor living space.

Brighten up the space

Accessorize with bright, seasonal colors that can give your patio personality. Choose a theme that flows with the vibe you’re going for, then incorporate the lively shades in your outdoor rug, pillows and other accent pieces.

Screen in your patio

If you want to enjoy the fresh air and want nothing to do with insects during the summer days and nights, consider motorized retractable screens. This is the perfect way to enclose your patio, offering additional privacy, shade from the sun and even protection from the rain. With Phantom Screens, there’s no reason to cut the get-together short— you can keep the party going all night.
