Yes, the time has come: spring turns into summer. There is a fresh warmth in the air. If spring heralds the beginning of outdoor season, summer celebrates it.
It's time to get your house summer-ready.
Prepare the Patio:
Since you're hopefully going to be spending a lot of time outdoors entertaining friends and family, try to prepare a unique seating and standing area for your guests. Add a cozy atmosphere to the outdoor entertaining area with a wooden patio.

Let There be Light:
Make pathways in your garden that can be visible at night. Maybe even add a little special spray paint to the stepping stones with glow in the dark paint!

Up your Movie Game:
Try using an outdoor projector, large screen and a sound system.

De-bug your Yard:
It's also bug season. Mosquitoes and other bugs are unwelcome visitors at your outdoor parties (but keep those dragonflies around as they are friends).
