There is no better way to spend summer than relaxing on your patio while enjoying the warm breeze. While you’re sitting under your patio umbrella sipping on some lemonade, the idea of throwing a fabulous outdoor party suddenly hits you, and you become super excited! That is until the realization that your favorite outdoor space could use a makeover hits you!  

Don’t stress over it too much, the experts at Zenith have put together some tips to get your porch party-ready in no time at all!

Power Wash the Deck

Spray all of the dirt off that has accumulated on your deck. Be it mud from a recent storm, the pitter patter of little paws, and even the occasional bird turd that has your outdoor space looking a bit drab.  For wood decks, wash in the same direction as the grain with cold water to prevent tearing the wood fibers.

Keep Sun at Bay with Shades

Your guest will enjoy staying cool under an outdoor shade that blocks the sun’s harmful rays. It is also a great solution to provide some privacy while outside and added protection from the rain.

Clean or Replace Patio Furniture

Check to make sure your furniture is not covered in grime from last year. If you have wrought iron, aluminum, or plastic furniture, it can be easily cleaned with a soft brush, dish soap, and water. For teak and wicker, you need to use an oil-based cleanser instead.

Provide Extra Seating

Depending on how many guests you’re expecting, rest assured they will all want somewhere to sit and relax. Have fun with it! Grab some ceramic garden stools, tree stumps, hay bales, or even some bean bag chairs!
