3 Tips to Help Get Your Patio Ready for Spring

Outdoor Patio Design & Construction near Baltimore, MDSpringtime is one of our favorite seasons here at VistaPro—do you want to know why? Because it’s finally getting warm enough to start dusting off and using all of those beautiful outdoor spaces that have been covered in snow all winter!

If you’re a patio owner, we know you’re probably itching to get out there and start relaxing in your gorgeous yard. Here are a few tips to help you get your patio ready for the new season ASAP!

1) Give your patio a post-winter cleaning.

The first step to spring patio prep is to dust, sweep, and power wash away all of the dirt and debris that has been accumulating on the surface over the past few months. You’re going to want to start setting up for warm weather with a clean slate.

It’s also a good idea to wipe down the patio furniture you’ve had in storage, and (if you’re feeling ambitious) freshen up any surrounding surfaces or the back of your home with a new coat of paint!

2) Add some new features and décor.

Upgrade your patio’s look this year with one or two new outdoor living amenities—like a fireplace or a BBQ—and some fresh new décor for spring. Plant colorful flowers and greenery in your yard to energize your space, and grab a few new pieces of interesting décor. A new set of throw pillows or chic end tables can do wonders to pull your style together and make your patio feel updated.

Choose colors, designs, and accents that make your outdoor space feel warm and inviting.

3) Get your patio lighting in order.

Landscape lighting is an important element in making your property, especially the patio where you and guests will be hanging out at night, safe and secure. It’s also crucial for setting the right mood for your outdoor lounge areas.

Install new, updated lighting that makes your patio look good and the space around it easy to navigate. Or, if you already have quality landscape lighting, service your existing system to ensure it’s working properly after a few months of disuse.

If you don’t have a patio yet but know this is the year you want to add one to your yard, enlist the team at VistaPro Landscape & Design to help. We’ll work with you to design and install the attractive, functional outdoor patio of your dreams.
