Patio Furniture and a Pond Pump: Prepping Your Yard for Summer Gatherings
Summer gatherings are right around the corner, and now is the time to take an inventory of your backyard and decide how to prepare it for summer gatherings. You may not have the time or money to do a complete overhaul, and it may not be necessary. Invest in a few small touches to transform your yard into a summer hideaway without breaking the bank.
If you’re looking to spruce up your backyard pond, invest in a high quality pond pump from Swallow Aquatics. A pond pump is an easy little machine that adds a lot to your pond. A pond pump will keep the water moving, providing a peaceful sound, and preventing the water from remaining stagnant. It will prevent unsightly residue from forming on top of the water and decrease the likelihood of unwanted bugs from nesting in your pond. Add a few plants to your pond to add some color and life, and if you haven’t already, invest in a few koi fish to add color, movement, and allure to your pond.
You don’t have to spend a fortune on patio furniture in order to find something that is attractive and useful. If you’re willing to invest some time and energy into it, you can purchase a used set and dress it up to your own tastes. Repaint the furniture in an attractive color and reupholster the seats with your home sewing machine to create a new, alluring set to compliment your backyard space. Turn your backyard into your dining room this summer, and enjoy it as much as you can. If you have an old set that you’re wanting to replace, consider revamping it instead and get several more years out of it -- and help the environment.
Even if you’ve never thought you have a green thumb, you can grow attractive plants and flowers in your backyard with little maintenance. Visit your local plant nursery and talk to the specialists there about foliage options that will fit your lifestyle. They should be able to recommend some hearty, beautiful options that will require you to do little more than water them a few times a week. As the specialist where you should plant the flowers to ensure they’ll get optimal sun exposure. You’ll feel peaceful every time you see the plants, and they’ll add amazing pops of color to your outdoor space.
