Summer time is the perfect time for things like barbecues, pool parties, and other fun outdoor gatherings - if you’ve got enough backyard to have them, that is!
Most homeowners have a backyard, but it’s probably fair to say it doesn’t always get the attention it needs before the weather gets really nice. It’s fine, we all do it, but if you’ve got a backyard that you want to be the center of some fun outdoor parties over the next few months, you might be looking for a little help to get it presentable and ready for company.
It’s summertime, and that means the kids are home from school - including your college students.
The break between semesters can be pretty long, and if your college-aged kids aren’t involved in any summer classes (or if their school doesn’t offer them) they’re probably going to want to spend their time back at home to see their friends and not have to think about homework, or where they can do their laundry.
“Hey Dad, what do you want for Father’s Day?” “Nuthin’.” It’s a bit of a cartoon stereotype, but we’ve all had this conversation with our dads, right? Heck, if you’re reading this and you are the dad, you’ve probably said this very thing yourself. (Not that we’ve had that problem here or anything.)
The sun is shining, the birds are singing, the grills are grilling...and you’re probably already dreading the amount of yardwork you have to do.
Don’t despair! Now that the sun is out there’s plenty to do, but you have plenty of time to do it. Instead of getting caught up in one massive project and getting all stressed out, why not try to start the summer right with a few quick projects you can get done in an afternoon or so?
