Freshen up for Memorial Day

Memorial Day is just a few weeks away. The annual start of summer ritual with pool openings, graduations and barbeques is fast approaching. Now is the time to clean up the deck, order new patio furniture and plant the garden. No one wants to spend the dog days of summer slaving away, but late spring's cooler temperatures and long sunny evenings make it easy to freshen up for summer fun.
Start with the deck, patio and porch. Power wash, paint and clean every nook and cranny. Apply new deck stain or paint and wash and install the screens. If it's dingy, freshen up. Outdated or dirty cushions and covers on patio or wicker furniture can be replaced for a fraction of the cost of new furniture. Easy care sunbrella fabrics make washing a breeze. Add new bistro metal furniture that folds easily for storage when not in use.
Add new furniture for an outdoor living room that can be used from now until the snow flies. Add an outdoor rug for extra softness and indoor appeal. New easy care rugs make them easy care and even hoseable and bleachable. Add patriotic or nautical throw pillows for a fresh look. Order now to allow for any delays in shipping. Then sit back, grab a good book, sip some wine, invite the neighbors over and relax.
