Though many Eastcoasters may laugh at us here in Portland, Winter’s hit us with its last hurrah, leaving slush to freeze into a commuter’s dream during the night. It’s late for us to get this cold (usually just lots of rain), but the sun will soon eat away the last of winter’s doldrums. It’s time to prepare for the sun’s return! With the tasks life throws, it’s hard to prioritize your patio and back yard, to find time for a needed Spring cleaning. But do it once now and you can enjoy the fruits of your labor for two seasons to come. Here are some great recommendations to transform your patio into a haven, a temporary vacation you can bring friends and loved ones to enjoy.
People Come First
If you’re planning to invite over friends or family, make sure there’s enough seating for everyone! A warm summer evening is time to relax, and no one wants to be the odd person out with nowhere to sit. It’s a good idea to go for light weight, modular designs.
Our Outsunny Rattan Wicker outdoor sets are particularly perfect for this – comfy and stylish, rearrangeable to the party’s needs, and easily stored away come fall.
In Oregon we get vivid Springs and gorgeous Summers, but there’s usually some periodic rain involved, and it can get real hot come July/August. A good canopy or awning means you and your guests will be protected from the elements, and can get back to relaxing!
Grill Like You Mean It
Has your grill seen better days? Or maybe you don’t have one at all? The best get-together’s involve lots of delicious grilling – this is known and undeniable. Make sure your guests leave full and happy!
Our Outsunny Charcoal Grill/Smoker is a fantastic option for under $80. Featuring ample grilling and prep room, a side smoker, and wheels for portability, it even has a built-in thermometer for precision cooking. Steaks, shrimp, shish kabobs, yes please to all – I haven’t eaten lunch yet and I’m getting hungry thinking about this!
Maybe you need something more portable? Our Outsunny 35″ Portable Folding Charcoal BBQ is fully collapsible, made of stainless steel for durability and easy cleanup. Perfect for camping, sporting events, or the beach. Also great as a second grill so your non-meat-eaters can grill too.
Time slips by so quickly! If you’re lucky enough to have a back yard or patio, clean and prep it now and start using it. So don’t wait until mid-summer to wish you’d been using it all along. Get what you need, create your own paradise, then invite some friends over!
