Spring Patio Protection

Spring Protection Seems that this Spring in particular has come in like a lion for all of us.
With small bursts of blue sky between showers, it may feel a little early to be thinking about warm afternoons outdoors. It’s not too early to be thinking about protecting your patios though. With Spring Specials popping up all over the internet and at your local retailers, reminders are everywhere that Patio Season is right around the corner.

With the warming weather and unpredictable rain squalls, protection should be top of mind after your initial deep clean of your patio’s furniture and grills.

Spring Time Patios
Our friends over at The Home Depot just posted a How-To get your patio ready for Spring:

“Patio furniture provides more than just a place to eat or relax outside—it’s also an extension of your indoor decorating style. The right outdoor furniture should be comfortable and durable and add beauty to your exterior space.

Here’s how to find outdoor patio furniture that you and your family can enjoy:

•  Assess Your Space. An expansive deck can be broken up into sections. Try an outdoor sectional on one end and a picnic table on the other. Break up a large lawn with a cozy nook complete with a fire-pit and a comfy conversation set. For a small deck or patio, consider a bistro set, porch swing or rocking chair. Even the most compact outdoor space can be turned into a gathering place with small patio furniture.
• Think About Style. Continue the vibe of your indoor decor outside. A wooden patio table and chairs bring that rustic look outdoors. Add a splash of color with vibrant cushions. For a modern style, select metal outdoor lounge chairs with clean lines and neutral accents. Consider a patio set with coordinating pieces to take the guesswork out of designing the space.
• Consider Comfort. Look for patio chairs and sofas with outdoor cushions made from fade- and mildew-resistant fabric. Adirondack chairs have classic style and offer comfortable seating to admire a beautiful backyard view. Hammocks are a family favorite and provide the ultimate summer relaxation.
• Be Ready for Day and Night, Rain and Shine. A large patio umbrella will provide plenty of shade on those hot, sunny days. For areas with chilly nights, add an outdoor heater to your seating area to maximize its use.

Caring for Outdoor Furniture

Patio furniture sets made from aluminum, all-weather wicker, teak or resin are tough and easy to care for. For a rainy region, resin furniture holds up well and comes in multiple designs to match any style. Wrought iron is also low-maintenance and can withstand a hot, humid climate.

To extend the life of your outdoor furniture set, use patio furniture covers.”

Only 6 more days until the official start of Spring!

From our neck of the woods, it feels like it – that’s for sure. Blue skies, birds chirping, and just a shower away from sitting on the patio in the afternoons. Yep, a Spring Shower away.
After having your BBQ and patio out of mind for months, it only takes a warm afternoon to start thinking of getting the lawn mowed, the planters planted and whatever else is on your to-do list for that space outside your back door. (yeah the one that’s seen winter’s wrath this year!) Just to have peace of mind that your patio is ready for that next get together because heck, THE SNOW IS GONE – let’s celebrate! With patio furniture covers it’s easy, whether it’s in between seasons or in between showers.

Celebrate is right, 6 more days friends… but hey, no one will RSVP “No” if it’s the first 70 degree day of the year following the Winter we’ve had if you decide this weekend is BBQ worthy!
