Allstate Home Leisure, a Jacuzzi Spas and Sundance hot tubs dealer with stores in Novi, Livonia, Rochester, Ann Arbor and Sterling Heights, MI is proud to share easy tips for preparing the backyard for spring.
Roy Farmer, the president of Allstate Home Leisure said, “Planning to create a great backyard for spring and summer fun is part of what helps people get through the winter. Now is the time to put the plans made during the cold months into action.”
Here are three helpful ways to prepare the backyard for spring.
Freshen Up Old Furnishings – Pull out the lawn furniture and get it looking its best with a few simple tricks. Use petroleum oil on plastic or acrylic furniture to restore the shine and brighten up colors. Use spray paint to cover old metal furniture and make it look new again. If old furniture is dirty or grimy from a winter in storage, wipe it down with a mixture of bleach and water. Wicker or wood furniture will look great again with some wood oil rubbed in to bring out the luster.
For old upholstered lawn furniture, clean up can be as easy as wiping down the material with a damp cloth. Or, consider having the pads re-upholstered, which is typically less expensive than buying new furnishings. Re-upholstering patio furniture is an easy way to give the backyard a new look for spring.
Get the Lawn Ready for Traffic – Healthy grass can easily handle normal foot traffic from friends and family throughout the winter months. However, after a long winter, weeds may have moved in to choke out healthy grass. Get started early by giving the lawn a helping hand and a good foundation.
Get rid of any debris that has blown or fallen down on the grass. Rake up old leaves, pick up trash and pull weeds that have taken hold. Spread a good quality weed killer/fertilizer combo on the existing grass, and cover bare spots with seed to help it get started. Once the lawn is re-established and growing well, keep it mowed, but don’t over cut. Cutting grass too short may lessen the number of times it has to be cut, but it damages the good grass, opening areas for weeds to thrive.
Create a Hot Tub Oasis – It isn’t necessary to spend a fortune to be pampered. Adding a hot tub to the backyard can make it easy to soak in luxury without hassle or monthly fees. Place a hot tub under a roof or create an enclosure to soak any time, day or night in any weather. Prepare the hot tub in plenty of time before friends and family arrive, and create an instant party draw that will get everybody in the spirit of fun and springtime adventure.
To encourage local residents to check out the benefits of using a hot tub to help improve their overall health and well-being, Allstate Home Leisure is providing free test soaks at all their showrooms.
