With this week's preview of warm spring weather, thoughts of going out on our decks to enjoy the sunshine come to mind. If your deck has been neglected in recent years, there is hope for bringing it back to life!
Power washing or simply a soap-and-water scrubbing will remove any mildew and wash away pollen. Looking to upgrade your deck? There are several options. Create separate zones for dining, relaxation, or conversation. Install a couple of umbrellas to escape the direct hot summer sun. Carefully select seating for your deck; comfortable chairs and chaises encourage extended visits outdoors. Add color to your deck with decorative pillows and/or colorful flower pots.
Remember, a beautiful deck not only increases the value of your home, it also creates an oasis for your family to enjoy every day!
