Owners of Southeast Michigan Real Estate Can Have Summer Fun in Their Own Backyard

Posted in Southeast Michigan Real Estate by Michigan Real Estate Expert on June 25th, 2009

Summer is gearing up, and the great summer holidays are right around the corner. From 4th of July picnics and fireworks to Labor Day barbeques, and every sunny day in between, a little preparation can make your Southeast Michigan real estate home a spot for summer fun.

Clean Up the Grill

One of the most popular pieces of outdoor party equipment is the barbeque grill. Over winter, it can accumulate a lot of dust.  Propane tanks may need recharging and even the tires might need filling. If the grill wasn’t cleaned and stored properly, last summer’s leftovers may be hanging on for dear life, and be really hard to get rid of. A good oven spray can help a lot. Spray on a generous amount and let your grill sit in the sun for a few hours before attempting to scrub the food surface clean.

Clean Up the Yard

Clutter is not only unsightly it can also be hazardous. Along with making sure toys are picked up and put away, check for branches that could have been knocked down by storms.  Also check for holes or uneven areas in the grass where a guest could twist an ankle.

Decorate Appropriately

Different holidays have themes that can be used to make your Southeast Michigan real estate home’s yard and patio look its best. For everyday fun in the yard, situate tiki lamps in strategic spots to keep away flies and mosquitoes. Use brightly colored serving dishes, plates and napkins.  You’ll find an amazing array of them at your local discount store.

Invite Friends and Family to Share the Fun

Parties are only as good as the people around you.  When you own Southeast Michigan real estate, you can invite friends and family to make a fun home party even better.  One final tip:  Have plenty of games on hand for all age groups.
