Tuesday, July 3rd, 2018 by Ramah Barmo
1. Lawn Maintenance
Impressing your guests with the aesthetic quality of a kept lawn is key. Here are a few tips to get your lawn looking great:
Make sure to sharpen your lawnmower blades.
Mow on a regular basis to prevent a layer of cuttings on the grass.
Install a rain gauge to prevent you from over watering your lawn. Grass only needs about one inch of water per week.
Best time to use weed control products when the temperature drops below 85 degrees Fahrenheit.
2. Deck Care Tips
There is more to just cleaning the deck with a quick sweep. Check out the following list of ideas:
First, thoroughly sweep the entire deck. Protect your plant pots by spraying them with water. This will help the soap slide off them in the last step.
Treat any visible stains with liquids from the local home improvement store.
Be careful with pressure washing your deck as it may compromise with the grout used in decking.
Lastly, mop the entire deck with cleaning products specialized for your deck.
3. Garden Bug Control
If you have an issue with mosquitoes, they will annoy your guests, especially at dawn and dusk. To keep them out of your yard follow this simple tip:
Destroy breeding grounds by emptying pots and removing buckets. Look for anywhere else that collects water. Check your local retail store for repellant products to place around your lawn.
Consider the integrity of your home when making plans and preparations for one of the biggest holidays of the year. By following this simple list, you can be on your way to enjoying this historic day with the ones you love.
