5 Ways to Get Your Outdoor Space Ready for Seasonal Entertaining

Getting Ready for Outdoor Entertaining

Memorial Day and Independence Day have come and gone. We’re halfway through summer and the next big holiday is Labor Day. Like most Northwest Florida residents, we love the fact that our backyards are extensions of our indoor living and entertaining spaces, and we take advantage of every inch of outdoor space we have. As long as the weather is pleasant, we’ll capitalize on any opportunity to invite friends and family members to hang out in our backyard with us.

When it comes to the polished look of our entertaining areas, we want our outdoor entertaining spaces to look as good the entertaining areas we use in our homes.  While you’re busy cleaning patio and deck furniture, getting the grill cleaned up and ready, and hanging decorative lights, you can leave the lawn service and landscape maintenance to us.

Here are some suggestions as to how GreenEarth can help you get your lawn and landscaped areas ready for outdoor entertaining. 

Schedule Weekly Lawn Care Services

Hire a Professional Lawn Service rather than doing it yourself

When you hire a landscaping service to handle your lawn care needs on a weekly basis, you won’t have to worry about whether your back or front yard will look good on the day or night you plan to entertain guests. Our experienced teams will take care of everything, ensuring that your property looks beautiful every day.

Illuminate Your Patio or Deck Area

Illuminating Outdoor Living Areas

Light up your deck, patio or any other outdoor entertaining area with string lights or decorative luminaries that you can make out of tin cans. String lights work well, too, and they can transform a simple outdoor eating area into an elegant entertaining space that oozes ambiance. Make sure that you buy string lights that are suitable for outdoor use.

Bring on the Color

Add Color with potted flowers and plants

Outdoor design experts from the popular Houzz design website recommend that homeowners add color to a wooden deck or stone or cement patio by accessorizing the area with pots filled with colorful flowers. Be sure you choose plants that are suited to the amount and intensity of sunlight your hardscaped patio or deck areas offer.

Clean Up the Grill

Clean Your Grill Properly before outdoor entertaining

We can’t imagine what outdoor entertaining would be like if the grill weren't the hub of food preparation. It’s important to keep the grill clean for safety and sanitation reasons. A well-maintained grill will last longer.

Leave the Landscape Maintenance Worries to Us
