Our Tips for Making Your Deck A Great Place To Be
Make Your Deck Green
There’s no better way to give your outdoor space a green feel than decorating it with flowers and plants. Succulents are extremely popular right now, and they require little maintenance when it comes to caring for them. Another great way to go green and benefit from it is by decking out your deck with mosquito-repelling plants. According to Garden Design Magazine lavender, marigold, citronella grass, and scented geraniums are among the plants that best repel those pesky mosquitos.
One of the best ways to enjoy your deck is by sharing a perfectly grilled meal with family and friends. Hotdogs, hamburgers, steaks, and corn are among many of the popular items people love to cook on the grill. It’s important that when we are grilling on our decks (and even when we aren’t) the right safety measures are taken so we are protecting our deck and ourselves. Lowe’s offers multi-step means of cleaning your grill to ensure it doesn’t rust. They also advise that you check the bristles on your grill brush to make sure they are in good condition and not coming out. Checking the propane levels often so you are aware of where your levels are. Keep your grill’s manual handy in case any problems arise.
There are plenty of ways to keep the family entertained out on the deck even after the sun has gone down. Try having a DIY movie night. Rent or purchase a projector, and hang a large white sheet against the back of your house. Turn your deck into an outdoor theater. You can even use the extra sheets to build forts out on your deck. The possibilities are endless when it comes to making memories and spending time with your family in your outdoor space.
