After years of repainting, re-staining, and repairing your old outdoor space, you finally completed deck restoration in Reston, VA to a durable composite option. Congratulations! Not only do you have a beautiful new space to enjoy, but you have more time back in your schedule now that you don’t have to worry about deck maintenance tasks.
Are you wondering how to spend that extra time? The DeckGuru team has your back. Here are some ways to enjoy your new deck with that extra time on your hands.
Host an Outdoor Party
We’re fortunate here in Reston, VA, that we get beautiful weather most of the year. What better way to enjoy your new deck than to host a party with your friends and family?
Pick a nice night, play your favorite playlist, serve food and drinks, and let your favorite people enjoy your new deck with you. You can even play fun yard games that adults and kids alike will enjoy.
Master the Grill
Now that your deck is in great shape, it’s time to master your grilling skills to make the most of your space. Start with the classics like burgers and dogs or get more creative by trying this grilled potato salad or sweet grilled peaches for dessert.
Once you’ve mastered the dish, eat al fresco while enjoying a cool breeze and great conversation with your family.
Perfect Your Favorite Cocktail
Few things are more relaxing than sitting out on your deck enjoying a cold drink after a long day. Why not use your extra free time to learn how to make your favorite cocktails (or mocktails!) at home?
Break out the fresh mint to make a batch of mojitos or make some freshly squeezed blackberry lemonade that the whole family can enjoy on a hot day.
Get Through Your TBR List
Most of us wish we had more time for reading, whether it’s the latest crime thriller or a self-help book that will change our lives. Now that you’re not spending your time on deck maintenance, take advantage of that extra free time and finally work your way through your to-be-read (TBR) list.
Better yet, take your book outside and read out on your deck!
Simply Soak up the Sun
Have you noticed that you feel better after spending time in nature? That’s not just in your head. Studies show that spending time outside can improve mental health and even provide cognitive benefits, whether its your backyard or the local lake.
Your upgraded deck gives you the perfect opportunity to spend more time soaking up the sun and enjoying the benefits of nature right in the comfort of your own backyard. As a result, you just might start to notice that you feel better overall.
