How will you be celebrating Memorial Day Weekend? Spending time with family, and honoring those who’ve served, no doubt. This holiday weekend is a good time to reconnect with loved ones, traditionally by way of backyard barbecues and lounging by the pool – getting that first taste of summer weather for the year, after the last few months indoors. If yours is one of the lucky families hosting a party this year, now is the time to make sure your backyard is ready for company! Prepare by looking around and considering its status as a space for entertaining guests.

How Does Your Deck Look?

If you’ve been putting off your deck project because replacing old, worn-out wooden planks is a lot of time-consuming work, you could find yourself out of time when Memorial Day weekend rolls around. Instead, consider a low-maintenance wood composite, which can retain the traditional look of wood, with an added sustainability bonus. Taylor Made can upgrade your deck and take that work off your hands, as well as provide other upscale amenities, such as programmable lights on the stairs for safety, and adding a stone and granite enclosure for your grill. Imagine cooking for your friends and family in such an upgraded space!

What is Your Shade Situation?

Memorial Day weekend is likely to be hot and sunny, and that means the comfort of your guests will require a nice shady spot to unwind while sipping cool drinks. Do you have a shaded area over your deck or patio to accommodate this? If not, now is the time to invest in one. Sometimes you can find a nice retractable awning to hang over a patio or deck for that shaded effect, but if you’re looking for something more aesthetic, a pergola could be just the right solution. Not only would one of our pergolas allow just the right amount of light through, without blocking the sun entirely, but it also won’t block as much of the warm air, either.

Do Your Walkways Need Repair?

Season after season, weathering can cause concrete walkways to crack, allowing weeds to pop through, and take away from the visual appeal of your yard. There is also a safety hazard for tripping on chipped and uneven stones. If your walkway could use an update, be sure to get it done in time for your holiday weekend festivities! You can even take this as an opportunity to update the overall color and design. Maybe your concrete walkway came with the house, and you haven’t had a chance to personalize it to your own style. Wow your guests with a beautiful red brick design, or any other design that could better suit your personal decorative goals for your yard.
