HAUPPAUGE, N.Y., April 21, 2017 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Safety pool cover and pool liner manufacturer, LOOP-LOC, shares a backyard party guide to preparing for BBQ season.
Summertime means fun in the sun, pool parties, and of course, barbecues. Now is the time to take a close look at the pool and backyard to see what needs to be done to prepare for this important season.
The grass and surrounding landscaping are the first things that party-goers will see, so it is vital that they are green and flourishing. Clean up any branches, leaves, and other yard waste to erase reminders of the cold winter. Mow and edge grass, kill weeds, trim trees and bushes, and plant some new flowers or shrubs to spruce up the area. If there is a concrete patio, scrub and/or wash it, concentrating on cracks and crevices.
Next, assess the backyard furniture. Hopefully it was stored for the winter and it is just a matter of wiping it down and setting it up. Wash it with a hose or power washer if necessary. Add some pavers or stepping stones to create a path to the entertainment area. It is also a good time to add some decorative or accent lighting such as mason jar lamps, torches, or hanging light strings for some extra ambience.
A grill is an absolute necessity for hosting a successful barbecue. Make sure there is a flat space to set up the grill or even create an entire cooking station! Place grilling accessories close at hand to add ease to the food prep and serving process. Set up a portable or rolling bar for cocktails and other refreshments.
Decorating the pool and surrounding area will make the party one to remember. Outdoor pillows, flowers, candles, and potted plants will make the party more festive. Target the ground, eye level, and above the head. A firepit can provide some dessert in the form of s'mores and serve to warm those who indulge in a moonlight dip.
Finally, as a host or hostess, the most important way to be ready for barbecue season is to relax and enjoy. This will put the guests at ease to not only have the time of their lives, but anxiously await their next invite!
