Make the Most of Your Backyard



If you want to spend more time in your backyard this summer enjoying the warm weather, there are a few things that you should consider doing to enhance your space. Here are three ideas on how you can make the most of your backyard.


1. Treat Pests Proactively
During the summer months, insect populations can boom. Biting insects such as mosquitoes and fleas can be a plague in your backyard that sends you running inside for cover as soon as the sun starts to set. You may also notice that they come out mid-day during humid weather or just after a rainfall. Bug spray can only do so much, and your dog’s flea treatment may not fend off every little bloodsucker. Ongoing treatment can help you reclaim your backyard from these irritating pests. To find a good outdoor flea control price Cary NC, work with a company that specializes in outdoor extermination and has extensive experience serving customers in your area.

2. Install a Refuge From the Sun
An awning will create an awesome space to hang out and enjoy your time outside for longer. You’ll feel a lot cooler when you’re under shade, so you can relax comfortably or sit down for a meal outside. Ideally, you should get a retractable awning so it will be easy to take down when you’re not using it, and it won’t be at risk of getting damaged in high winds or heavy rain.
3. Get a Great Grill
No great backyard setup is complete without a great grill. Decide on the features that are most important to you, pick a size that’s big enough for the meals that you’d like to be preparing, and then start shopping. Look online for competitive pricing from retailers in your area who can deliver a grill directly to your home.

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere.
