We hope you have enjoyed cooking out, relaxing, sunbathing and even listening to music loudly (at least that’s what we do!) on your deck this summer.
Now as fall is starting to make her grand entrance, we wanted to share some quick ideas for enjoying your deck and the beauty that falls brings.
TIP 1 –
Make repairs to the decking, railing and stairs.
This is a good time to replace any splintered wood either within the deck or stairs. It is also a good time to tighten the railing or replace any pieces that are broken or loose.
The familyhandyman has excellent tips on making all the repairs you might need. http://bit.ly/2cexmII
TIP 2 –
Now that all those repairs are done, it is time to decorate and here are some of our favorites.
** Mums, mums and more mums! (Pretty sure you can never have too many.)
** Pumpkins… all colors, painted, plain, carved or not, use your imagination and go for it.
** Pillows, blankets, bales of hay… the possibilities are endless.

TIP 3 –
Life can go by so quickly with work, school, families, and taking the time to slow down, get outside and breath some fresh air can be just like medicine.
So take the time to watch the leaves change and fall off the trees this year. Make a huge leaf pile and let your kids jump in it. Just get outside and enjoy not only your deck, but make some memories this fall too!
