As summer looms in the near future and many people anticipate spending more time at home, preparing your outdoor space for warm, summer weather becomes increasingly important. Of course, there are traditional tasks such as preparing your garden for planting, cleaning up debris from the yard, power washing your driveway and walkways, and clearing your gutters; however, there are ways to prepare your home and yard for summer that you might not even consider. Here is your out-of-the-box summer yard preparation checklist:
To create a more desirable, modern yard, homeowners may need to look away from tradition and toward technology. Many homeowners might overlook the value of a weatherproof screen or outdoor speakers; yet, these devices can upgrade the ambiance of your yard and create an entertainment space you'll never want to leave. Upgrade your string lights to light-up steps and replace your outdoor lamps for solar-powered deck lighting! This will not only make your yard more eco-friendly, but it will also make your yard feel sophisticated and chic.
Upgrade Your Electrical Blueprints
While implementing some technology is rather simple, other advancements require planning. Will you need to expand your Wi-Fi network or run electrical wiring to power your new lights and devices? How can you incorporate modern touches safely? Can you minimize the impact that upgrading your yard can have on your electrical bill with smart solutions? Is it preferable to spend time preparing the yard between seasons, or would you rather your yard is ready to use with just a bit of TLC once the weather warms up? The best way to address these questions is to work with your neighborhood electrical experts. They understand weather conditions and electrical code requirements, so your backyard oasis will be safely upgraded.
