Get Your Yard Ready for Summer

Make the most of your backyard this summer by optimising your outdoor space. Below are 4 tips to help you get started.

Step 1: Clean Up

First, start prepping your backyard by clearing out space and getting rid of all your unused and damaged items. See what you can repair, maintain, or reuse before throwing it out. For example, paint an item over to give it a new fresh look. Instant Waste Management can help with the clean up by providing skip bins to your site to disposed of unrequired items.

Step 2: Landscaping

Gather a collection of inspiring images from Instagram, Pinterest, Google, and Facebook groups to help set the tone and give you a better idea of the kind of outdoor space you would enjoy. Some ideas you can incorporate to make your backyard more sustainable and useable include, planting fruit trees and vegetables and potting plants/flowers. Other popular ideas include installing a water feature, separate seating areas, hammocks and adding outdoor rugs.


Step 3: Keep Cool

Make your backyard more comfortable and useable by installing retractable external blinds and/or retractable roofs. This will create a cool indoor/outdoor space where you can enjoy time with your friends and family without worrying about the heat and damaging sun rays. Shading can extend the comfort of your home and double up as extra security screens. Another way to beat the heat this summer is to add external fans in your outdoor patio.
