How to Take Your Backyard from Drab to Fab This Summer

HAUPPAUGE, N.Y., May 19, 2017 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Safety pool cover and pool liner manufacturer, LOOP-LOC, shares helpful tips to get your backyard ready for summer.

Summer is around the corner. Don't wait until it's hot and you want to sit outside and enjoy the fine weather to begin turning your backyard into an oasis. Here are some steps you can day-by-day or weekend-by-weekend to get your yard backyard barbeque ready by June.

Buy outdoor throw pillows to decorate your outdoor furniture. Outdoor throw pillows make furniture pop and entice you to sit down and relax. Make sure to get outdoor pillows so that they will withstand the elements this summer. This is an easy step that can be done in one evening after work. Do this first because the simple touch of adding accents with throw pillows will make a huge difference and will motivate you to do more.

Paint or replace worn outdoor furnishings. A new coat of paint goes a long way to sprucing up the backyard. Use summer colors to celebrate the season. Coordinate the colors with the throw pillows. Once this step is accomplished, you will feel like you got over a big hurdle in prepping the backyard for summer. Do this after getting throw pillows to check the box on a bigger task because you will feel like you've made some real progress.

Decide on a large-must have item. Once you've done something fun (got throw pillows) and accomplished a larger task (revamped worn outdoor décor), it's time to tackle the ultimate statement piece. Think about how you envision your yard. What one large item is your dream item? Is it an outdoor kitchen? A bar area? A dining table for ten guests? Whatever it is, create it or get it. This is your treat to yourself and what will keep you absolutely in love with your yard all summer long.

Use simple objects to create fabulous features. A large bucket or flower pot can be turned into a table or end table. Get creative and use what you already have available. It saves time and money.

Plant flowers and drape gorgeous plants over your pool fence. The pool is a centerpiece of the backyard, so make sure it pops and naturally fits with your backyard theme. There are many tropical-looking plants that can be weaved along a pool fence to add beauty to a very important part of pool safety. Plus, adding this beautiful touch will turn your pool area into your new vacation spot it will feel so resort-like!
