Tips To Help Maintain Your Outdoor Space

Maintaining your outdoor space when it comes to your home is something you always want to pay attention to. It’s one area of the home that can often be neglected but should, in fact, a space that’s used quite often throughout the year. With that in mind, here are some tips to maintain your outdoor space.

Get Fuss-Free Materials & Greenery

Firstly, make sure you are picking things for the outdoor space that are going to be manageable. You don’t want to get plants or greenery that are going to take a lot of work to upkeep because you might not have time to do this. The same goes for materials like outdoor furniture. Even though some furniture might look nice with a metal finish, the upkeep to stop them from rusting might be a bit too much and it might end up getting ruined by forgetting to cover them up or store them away.


Find things that are going to be easy for you to deal with and this can change from person to person. You may be someone who loves their garden and spending time pruning it. There’s also so much out there to pick from, that you’re not going to have a hard time finding things anyway.


Go Artificial

It’s good to consider your options when it comes to what you include in your outdoor space, particularly when it comes to things like grass and other natural materials. However, you may want to consider going artificial, especially as the upkeep of making the grass look good is quite difficult. Depending on where you live and how you treat it, can dictate just how green your grass will be. So with that being said, if you fancy not having the hassle of mowing the lawn, then you definitely want to think about getting artificial grass instead. It also means that if you have any kids or pets, they’re not bringing in half of the garden with them on their feet or shoes.


Get Professionals In For Big Jobs

There are some big jobs when it comes to maintaining your outdoor space that is bigger than you can take on alone. Things like tree surgery and cutting down big trees will likely need someone like Sydney Tree Company to step in and take the lead. It’s best to get the professionals in so that everything is done correctly and won’t be harmful for you or your household to try and do yourselves.


Declutter The Space

And finally, make sure that you treat your outdoor space like you treat the indoor space. Clear it of any clutter and that way, you’re not falling over yourself when trying to move around the space. This is particularly important when you have young children but also when entertaining guests. You don’t want the outdoor space to look a mess and so try to keep it clutter-free.


Maintaining your outdoor space can take some effort but it’s definitely important to do more of where you can.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe
