After being cooped up in the house all winter long, when spring hits, we are dying to get outside! We look forward to the warm fresh air, the sound of the birds chirping and beautiful bright green grass. Now that spring is finally here, we are so excited to enjoy our outdoors. We are lucky to have a beautiful backyard where the kids can run around and we can all enjoy family time together. This year, we are planning to utilize our backyard as an extension of our home which means that we need to treat it as such. Enjoy some of our tips on how to enjoy your backyard space to the max!
Utilize The Space
Like I said, we are lucky to have great space, but what’s the point if you don’t utilize it appropriately? This year, we decided to make a big change in our backyard that will allow us to spend more time outside enjoying the sunshine and the fresh air. For the past 10+ years we have been walking out onto a deck that made us feel very uneasy! We were worried about the kids getting splinters or even worse, falling through the railing! This impacted the amount of time spent in our yard. We decided that this year was the year to make a change in a big way! Out came the old deck and in went the new one which has completely changed our space! We can now let the kids out into the yard on the deck knowing that everyone is safe. Safety first! This has made a huge difference in enjoying our outdoor space. We plan on serving many meals to family and friends on the deck this spring and summer! Consider creating a deck, patio or stoned area to enjoy for entertaining in the warmer months.
Care for Your Greenery
Once we took care of the deck and knew that we would be outside more, we knew that we better get our lawn into tip top shape. When it comes to lawn care, routine is key. We put our lawn care trust in TruGreen. We trust that all of our lawn care needs will be met with their scientifically tailored approach to lawn care services. Our lawn is maintained and the trees and shrubs are taken care of as well, which is a must in our heavily tree populated backyard. With 3 popular plans, we are able to choose the plan that will meet our needs best. With every plan, we know that weeds won’t be invading our outdoor space and that the lawn will be fertilized with care. TruGreen gives us the confidence to feel lawn proud season after season!

Furniture for the win!
Spruce up the yard with some fun outdoor furniture for yourself and the kids this season. If you love to entertain, a table and chairs near the BBQ is a great addition to your space. If you are looking to relax, consider adding a hammock to your yard to lie on while the kids are playing! For the kids, there are so many wonderful outdoor toys on the market for every age and stage! A swing set provides hours of fun or a stand-alone slide could be just what you need! Whatever suits your space will be a great add-on to truly enjoy your space this spring and summer!
