How to Ready Your Maryland Deck for Spring
Is your deck ready for spring? With warm weather rapidly approaching, it’s time to dust off your patio furniture and spruce up your outdoor space. Follow these simple tips to have your deck and yard barbeque ready in no time.
Clean The Deck
After the whipping winds of winter, it’s likely that your deck has a layer of debris on and around it. Start by sweeping and raking away any leaves sticks or plant matter. Remove everything from your deck and give it a thorough sweep, you can also use a leaf blower if you’d like. Once the surface layer of dirt has been removed you’ll want to use a power washer with whatever type of cleaning solution works best for your deck type.
Clean The Furniture
Any items that were left on your deck over the winter should be given a thorough wash to remove any built-up grime and dust. If you have items in storage they will likely need a good wiping down to remove any dust and cobwebs as well. For deck furniture, a sponge and household soap are all you’ll need to get them good as new.
Check For Any Damage
With your deck fully cleaned it’s time to do a thorough check up to see if any repairs or updates are needed. If any paver stones are cracked or if there are any signs of wood rot or infestation you’ll want to make sure that any potential problems are dealt with before they become expensive repairs.
Once your deck and furniture are inspected and ready to go it’s time for the fun part, decorating! Add colorful outdoor cushions, a bright umbrella, and flowering plants to make your space pop. Choosing a color scheme can help you create an inviting, festive look that you’ll want to spend time in.
Update your Landscape
If you have any plants or landscaping features that were damaged by winter, now is the perfect time to refresh and reinvigorate. Adding mulch and new plants will spruce up your yard making your deck even more appealing.
