When the spring and summer weather calls you outdoors, it’s finally time to make the most of that extra room in your house: your deck! This time of year, your deck is a perfect space for entertaining, cooking and relaxing – and just might become your new favorite room. What else does your deck have to offer? Read on for more things to do with your deck.
Clean After a winter filled with snow and cold, your deck may be due for a pick-me-up. At Haven Ridge, all our decks are made of Trex® material, which is very durable and only needs a brief wipe-down in order to look like new. For wooden decks, power washing can get rid of all that winter dullness.
Garden Your deck can become an oasis for everything from bright summer flowers to herbs and vegetables. If you’ve always dreamed of maintaining a garden of your own, container gardening is a great, controlled place to start. Invest in some boxes to hang along the edge of your deck to make the most of the space.
Grill Nothing screams summer like a home-grilled meal. At Haven Ridge, our homeowners can even hook up their grills to the natural gas line inside their homes, so no refilling of propane tanks is required!
Decorate. Sure, your deck is outdoors, but that doesn’t mean you can’t decorate it like the rest of your home. Outdoor furniture, lights, awnings and plants can all make the space feel more unique to you.
Relax! Your deck is like a mini-vacation spot: a place for you and your family to enjoy the fresh air without really leaving the comforts of home. Prop your feet up and enjoy your little oasis this summer!
