During summer, we’re naturally inclined to host everything outdoors. From family barbecues to elaborate reunions and even wedding receptions, everything is so much better when the sun is beaming down or twilight has set in. That’s why hosting a backyard party is so popular once summer arrives.
If you’re planning an outdoors extravaganza, we can help get your yard ready for the celebrations. At Green Collar Landscaping, we’ve helped several clients transform their outdoor spaces for a big event, so if you’re thinking about hosting a backyard party, here are some ways that a landscaper can help.
Get a Lush Lawn
When grass gets dry, it may become prickly and brown or worse, there may be bare patches. A landscaping company can help you achieve a lush, healthy lawn by fertilizing the grass, recommending watering schedules, and mowing it a few days before the party to make sure it’s ready for all the outdoor fun.
Prepare Your Gardens
If your shrubs are developing a wild side, a landscaper can prune them into shape as well as freshen up your garden by removing dead plants and replacing them with new and vibrant ones. Topping up your planters or garden beds with bark chips or mulch after doing any necessary weeding can create a finished appearance that will impress your guests.
Invest in an Outdoor Kitchen
Outdoor kitchens make great entertaining spaces. Preparing food over an open grill is a lot more comfortable than standing at a hot stove, and guests can gather around while you’re getting dinner ready. An experienced landscaping company can prepare your outdoors, so you can make a four-course dinner under the stars!
Set Up Outdoor Lights
If you want to keep the party going after the sun goes down, lighting is key! You can get LED lights in a variety of formats, from lanterns and strings to wall and flood lights. When they’re placed in strategic locations like planters, around the garden, or in trees, the effect can be breathtaking. Fire pits also provide mood lighting and are a fun focal point when you’re hosting a backyard party. Talk to your landscaper about supplying and installing the lights needed to keep the party going well into the night.
