If the snow is finally melting, after the last blizzard of the season, the mosquitoes cannot be far behind. You know what that means: SUMMER IS COMING! We have been waiting long enough for warmer weather to signal that summertime activities are not far behind. We are going to the lake; we are opening the pool; we are bringing out the summer wardrobe.
Are you ready for summer? Once the snow clears and you can find your outdoor living spaces again, what needs to be done before summer swings into high gear?
Landscape clean-up — All those dead branches you couldn’t see: now you can remove them. Masses of leaves that were covered by snow and ice before you could rake them: now you can rake them. If the melted snow has left behind any standing water on your property, be sure to drain it or dry it out before it becomes a breeding ground for mosquitoes.
Mosquito and tick control — Speaking of mosquitoes, if you haven’t yet called Mosquito Squad of the Twin Cities, now is the time to call and set up your service. Mosquito and tick protection is one way to keep your family safer during the summer.
Outdoor living spaces — It may seem like a long Honey-Do list, but you’ve got to start somewhere! It’s time to clean the grill, refill the propane, clean the pool and spruce up your outdoor furnishings to make sure your deck, porch or patio is/are ready for summer. Whether you’re the Honey or the list-maker, you’ve got work to do!
Lighting for outdoor living spaces — Is this the year you’ll have deck lighting or patio lighting installed to make your outdoor living spaces usable for additional hours every evening? This is the time of year to call Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Minneapolis for a free outdoor lighting design consultation. There’s no need to let darkness drive you inside night after night. Professional lighting for your outdoor living spaces is the best way to make the most of summer nights. String lighting, party lights, café lights, bistro lights—whatever you call them, they will elevate your festivities instantaneously. We can install professional-grade LED string lighting that stands up to tough weather so you can leave them up all year long.
Party planning — Memorial Day, July 4th and Labor Day are the big ones, sure, but you don’t have to stop there. Any summer weekend is a reason to spend good times with friends … especially if you have professional outdoor lighting installed so you can extend your get-togethers beyond nightfall. Have you selected your recipes yet? It’s time to pull up those recipes you’ve been saving on Pinterest for months and try them out.
