Cool Down

Set up an area in the shade. Don’t forget the wonder of sprinklers and wading pools. If you’re fortunate enough to have a pool, make full use of it. If not, stock a cooler with refreshing drinks, bring out a spray bottle filled with water, and get ready to chill. You can beat the heat and relax at the same time.

Give Your Landscaping a Face-lift

Bring in new flowers and mulch to liven up your lawn. Mulch is especially important around the summer months to retain water in the soil. Trim bushes and trees to make your yard look tidy. Be careful not to mow your grass to close or it will burn. Pace your mowing and wait for later in the day to avoid blasting heat. You’ll have the backyard paradise you’ve always wanted.
