Building Your Outdoor Sanctuary

Building Your Outdoor Sanctuary

Whether you are relaxing in the front or back yard, your lawn is your sanctuary. It provides a much-needed break from the indoors without having to go somewhere else. To make your space truly your own, go through and make sure that your lawn, deck and fence are well cared for and set up just for you.

With a Great Lawn 

The first step in building your sanctuary is to take care of your lawn. This area is the welcome mat to your yard. With this space, you can create a luxurious place just for you. When planning any care, take the time to ensure that the grass is receiving the care it needs. This includes using the proper water amount, plants native to Texas, and an appropriate amount of fertilizer or compost to provide your lawn the nutrients it needs. With a properly cared for lawn, you can feel the grass between your toes as you relax under the sun.

A Relaxing Area 

Once you have your grass tended to, take the time to focus on the deck area. Your deck provides a space for your lawn furniture and grill to help you enjoy the sun and fresh air. Don’t forget that your deck faces the sun and weather every day and requires extra care. When creating a care plan include sweeping the deck, seasonal deep cleaning, and checking for areas where the stain has started to fade or rot. Part of your care routine should include rotating some of the deck furniture to avoid discoloration problems caused by shadows.
