Believe it or not, it'll be summer before you know it and we'll be having outdoor bbqs and finding ways to spend time outside. Even though it's still cold and there's more snow to come, you can get started with plans for a beautiful outdoor space now!
Here are 5 things to do to get your outdoor space ready for summer:
Outdoor kitchens don’t need to be anything fancy. While a nice grill is all you need to create an outdoor cooking space, consider adding a built in grill surround with a prep area, here’s how! With the help of a pipefitter, you can run a fixed gas line to fuel your grill without the hassle of propane tanks. While you’re at it, install an outdoor fridge to allow easy access to nice cool drinks in the summer heat. Start building the surround in the next few months so you're ready for warm weather!
While you don't want to do too much landscaping now, you can install new edging for your flower beds, flagstone paths or a brick tree surround to bring some flair to your yard. If you want to do more, set some meetings with landscapers now to get professional opinions and set a timeline for your project.
You can keep it simple and grab a low cost firepit from your local big box store or you can hire a contractor to install a firepit connected to your gas line. Or go big and build your own firepit, like this one, during a warmer weekend. Firepits can even be enjoy while it's still cold out, so there's no time like the present to make it happen.
Twinkling lights add a lot of magic to an outdoor event. You can get ready to hang those lights come the first sign of summer in just an afternoon. Avoid drilling and hanging hooks directly into the house. Instead we recommend to build support pole where you can hang twinkling lights from without damaging your home. Overall it's a low cost project with a lot of payoff.
Finding the perfect outdoor seating can be time consuming. Instead of rushing into a decision come summer, start browsing now. You can look online to find styles you like so you know what you want when it's time to start "test driving" the merchandise. Online searching now will also help you set a budget so you can be prepared for the larger purchase.
