After a long, wet winter and a rainy spring, your outdoor living space may not be ready for summer entertaining just yet. Don’t worry! Get ready for a summer of successful outdoor entertaining by following these tips.
Prep your entertainment area
For great outdoor entertaining, you’ll want your entertainment area to be clean and in order. Winter damp and rain plays havoc with patio paving. A deep clean and seal will sort that out and get it looking like new again
Get a lush lawn
Depending on the current condition of your lawn, this may mean a simple application of fertilizer or over-seeding to fill in bare spots. If your lawn is beyond repair due to the past drought, perhaps think of having artificial lawn installed.
Create mood lighting
Nothing is quite as magical on a summer evening as fairy lights. Many outdoor lighting ideas don’t require hard-wiring – consider outdoor string lights wound around tree trunks, decorative lanterns with LED candles, or battery-powered LED garden torches. Even rechargeable LED lights or lanterns are a great option – what with the possibility of loadshedding!
Fun outdoor seating instantly transforms any patio or deck into an outdoor oasis. Keep your guests relaxing with alternative seating like hammocks and swings strategically placed in your backyard or on your paved patio area. To ensure the cushions and chairs are hygienically clean, call the professionals to give them a once over – getting them looking and smelling like new.
