If you’re like most Arizona homeowners, you use your patio all year long. But, that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t make an effort to do some spring cleaning when it comes to your outdoor space. A thorough sprucing up is always a good idea to maintain the value of your home and to enable you to enjoy your patio. The following are some tips to get your patio in tip-top shape.
A thorough power wash of your deck or patio can make it look like new again. This can be professionally done, or at the very least, you can remove the furniture, and simply spray down the area with water to remove the dust and dirt that tends to accumulate in our desert region.
Replace or Clean Up Outdoor Furniture
A regular wipe down of furniture is always a good idea. Check for broken legs, slats, and ripped cushions. Often times, these can be fixed without having to buy new pieces. And, new cushions can be purchased inexpensively to instantly bring new life to tired patio chairs.
Time to Replace the Plants
Potted flowers look great in the fall and winter months. But, as we start getting closer to the triple digit temperatures, it can be hard to keep many blooming plants looking good. Fortunately, there are many native plants that can add color and thrive in even the hottest months of summer. By investing in a few of these hearty plants, you can ensure year-long greenery on your patio that will look great and not require constant care.
Consider a New Awning
Do you have a weather-worn patio or no shady area at all? A retractable awning can be a fantastic way to transform your patio into an amazing outdoor living space that your whole family will love. These can be custom made to complement your home’s architectural features and exterior paint colors to truly add value and visual appeal.
