Buying a New Fridge? There Are Ways of Disposing of Your Old Fridge SafelyMay 4, 2022
Disposal of Old Tires – The Importance of Recycling and ReusingMay 23, 2022
Whether you have a tiny backyard or a few acres, now is the time to tackle those outdoor spaces to get them ship shape for summer. With Memorial Day around the corner, it is time to fire up the barbecue, organise a pool party, and start enjoying leisurely outdoor meals.
Living in Pennsylvania means that you experience four distinct seasons through the year, with a very cold winter that comes with lots of snow and ice. These conditions are very hard on the exterior of your home, so you are sure to have some maintenance to carry out when the weather starts warming up.
Is Your Patio Ready for Summer
Here are some of the chores you need to complete to get that patio ready for those summer outdoor activities.
Check your patio furniture.
You most likely have stored it away during the long winter so take a long hard look at it. It is probably dirty and dusty so a pressure wash should do the trick. After all, the past two summers have been spent having our socializing restricted by the pandemic, and hopefully this season will mean we can start seeing friends and family again. So it is time to replace tired looking patio furniture. If it is only the cushions that are worn out, replace them with something modern. Cushions do tend to need replacing every few years, especially if they are left out in all types of weather.
If you need to get rid of your old garden furniture call Little Green Junk to do the hauling away for you.
Is your patio decking looking tired?
Pressure wash your deck, patio, or porch which will make a huge difference to its appearance. If it is a wooden structure it is recommended to seal it every other year to prevent damage from the weather and to prolong its life. Our harsh winters can cause cracks to appear in cement and tiled patios, so check for any damage. If you need to add to your deck or replace it, Little Green Junk can remove any construction waste from your premises which we dispose of in a responsible manner.
Your barbeque/outdoor kitchen
This is where summer living begins, so make sure your grill is ready to fire up. It may only need routine maintenance and cleaning, but if you decide to upgrade your outdoor kitchen equipment with a new barbeque, and replace any bar fridges, we at Little Green Junk will be able to remove any old equipment and make sure that they are recycled if possible or disposed of responsibly.
Swimming pool/hot tub
Getting the pool ready for summer is much easier if you had a pool cover on it during the winter. You will need to test the chemicals in the water, and make sure that the filter is working 100%. Check the coping and the tiling around the pool and repair anything that needs it.
If you wish to take out your hot tub and replace it with a new one, Little Green Junk can help with your hot tub removal. Hot tubs are notoriously difficult to work with and to move as they are large and awkward, so give us a call for a free, no obligation quote if you are thinking of replacing yours.
Are your outdoor lights working?
Replace any bulbs that no longer work with low-energy LED ones. Lighting is a great way to add some ambience to your outside area, so consider investing in some solar lights for your swimming pool and garden surrounding the patio.
Fencing and walkways
Check the fencing around the pool and ensure that it is secure. Clear your patios and walkways of moss as it can make these areas slippery and dangerous. This is a good time to check outdoor play equipment to make sure that it is safe for your kids to play on. If you need to replace any of this equipment please contact Little Green Junk to take any old broken pieces away.
Screens that keep out bugs
If you are plagued by bugs in summer and have screens over your doors and windows, or even a porch that is screened in, clean them yourself when you clean your windows. Replace any of them that are broken to ensure you enjoy a bug-free summer.
Spruce up your yard
Spring is the correct time to tidy up your yard. Prune trees and shrubs to keep them in good shape. Make sure that your lawn is mowed, fertilized, and any bare patches are overplanted.
Sweep paths, unblock drains and downpipes, and rake up any old twigs, sticks, and dead leaves to tidy up your yard.
Get your planters and your beds ready for planting summer blooms and vegetables. Add compost to the beds, get rid of the weeds, and your beds and planters will be ready to be planted up. Visit your garden centre and stock up on colorful annuals that will give you a show throughout the summer months.
