renters how to make your outdoor living space feel like home great falls va

If you rent the home or apartment, you probably don't want to spend a lot of money on improving the outdoor living space. However, this doesn't mean that you can't make your outdoor living area feel like home. These are a few tenant-friendly tips for feeling more at home in your rented space.

Use Potted Plants in Your Outdoor Living Space

You probably don't want to dedicate a lot of time, money and effort into planting flowers and other plants in your backyard, and there's a chance that your lease forbids you from doing so anyway. You might even live in an apartment that doesn't have a lawn or that has minimal lawn space. This doesn't mean that you shouldn't enjoy the joys of live plants, however.

Instead of digging in the ground or living without plants, try adding potted plants to your outdoor living space. When kept in beautiful pots and when arranged properly, they can look great without actually being planted. Along with adding small trees, shrubs and flowers, you can even try container gardening if you would like to plant your own fruits, vegetables and herbs. Then, when you move, you can bring your plants with you, and you won't have to worry about digging up the yard at the home that you are currently renting, nor will you have to worry about living plant-free just because you're currently residing in an apartment.

Invest in Nice Outdoor Furniture for Your Outdoor Living Space

Using the right outdoor furniture in your backyard or on your patio -- or both -- can make your outdoor living space feel like home. Go ahead and invest in high-quality furniture that you can easily take with you to your next home. A good idea is to opt for outdoor furniture in neutral colors; then, you can ensure that it will match your next home, even if the color scheme is a lot different.

Even if you do opt for neutral colors, however, you can still brighten things up. A few outdoor-friendly throw pillows are great for adding comfort and color, and they can be swapped out for the seasons or can be traded for different pillows if you find that they aren't a good match for your next rental.

Install Portable Lighting in Your Outdoor Living Space

You might not love the standard-issue bright light that is used on your back patio, but replacing it isn't exactly a good option if you're renting. Luckily, there's still something that you can do about it. Try using lanterns or strings of holiday lights or party lights to dress up your outdoor living space without making any permanent changes. Another option is to use solar lights around your patio or around the backyard for an affordable touch of lighting. Then, you can bring your lights with you when you move.

Use Rugs in Your Outdoor Living Space

Look for large, colorful outdoor rugs that you can use to brighten up a boring patio. Along with adding some color, cheer and personalization to your outdoor living space, a nice outdoor rug will help prevent any spills or stains on the concrete, such as while you are grilling or enjoying a few drinks with friends.

You can then add yet another touch of customization to your outdoor living space by adding a nice outdoor rug in front of the back door. Along with brightening up your outdoor living space, it'll also help you and your guests brush your feet off so that you don't cause any stains or damage to your rental flooring, particularly if your rental has carpet.

As you can see, there are ways to make your outdoor living space feel like home, even in a rental. If you're ready to start shopping for furniture and other touches, contact us at Lawn & Leisure to find out about all of our great rental-friendly options.

tips-for-safe-use-of-outdoor-grills-reston-vaDue to the fact that they’re used so much, it’s very easy for someone to get comfortable when they are using their barbecue grill and therefore stop taking precautions when it comes to safety. Fires can be caused by grills, as can serious injuries if the grill is used improperly. The following safety precautions should be followed constantly when you use a grill.

The Great Outdoors

These grills are made to be used outdoors only.  They are not designed to be used in tents, garages, or other spaces that are enclosed, even if the space is ventilated well.

Hoses

The hoses of the grill should always be checked for holes, leaks, and cracks before you start to barbecue.  This is something that is really important when you are using it for the first time after the winter.

Gas Containers

It’s a good idea to store your spare tanks of gas outside, but don’t store them near your grill. They are meant to be stored in an upright position and never lay it on their back.

Location

A recommendation from fire departments is to use a barbecue grill a minimum of ten feet from trees and buildings. You don't want the heat to damage your building or even possibly ignite something you don't want ignited. The best way to avoid these disasters is to keep a safe distance.

Burns

To avoid the risk of serious burns, grills should not be moved while it’s still hot.  You should also use utensils that have the extra long handles to avoid being burnt.

We are always trying to provide our customers with information about safely using outdoor grills. We have many products to use outside, not just grills. Please contact us if you want to know more or if you have any questions for us.

 

tips-for-cooking-on-outdoor-grills-leesburg-vaGrilling your meat on a barbecue is a tradition for the summertime in America.  When you take proper precautions, you are able to safely barbecue on your backyard grill. And the results are going to be even better than cooking your barbecue in your oven.

Backyard Grill Tip 1: Use Proper Utensils

Use some utensils that are made for grilling – in other words, they should have handles that are extra long. You need to have tongs so you can grab your meat, as well as turn the meat over and put it where the meat should be on your grill. Spatulas work well for meat pieces which are wide and thin, like fish. A grilling fork lets you spear your meat to see the inside of it and check juice color to see if it's cooked.  Another essential item is a brush for basting.

Backyard Grill Tip 2: Keep It Juicy

Due to the dry and high heat of a barbecue, you want to make sure that the meat doesn’t dry out. This is done by basting or marinating, or both. When you marinate you soak meat that is raw in a liquid which is flavorful for anywhere from 2 – 12 hours. If you find yourself without a recipe for marinade, there are lots of marinades that you can buy at the store.  Meat cuts that are low-fat get a lot of benefits from a marinade.

When you baste, it means that you are brushing a sauce or liquid that is flavorful onto your meat while it cooks. This is also going to keep your meat juicy as well as adding flavor to its exterior. Even if the meat’s been marinated, basting is still important. Put aside some of the marinade for basting or use a favorite sauce, such as teriyaki or barbecue sauce.

When your meat is almost done, put it your meat to the side and keep it away from the direct heat.  You can also put it on your platter and cover it loosely with some tin foil before putting it in a place that is warm. It should sit there for anywhere from 5 – 30 minutes, depending on big the meat is. This is going to allow the juices and the heat to have even distribution.

Backyard Grill Tip 3: Lighting the Charcoal

If you’re barbecuing with charcoal, it’s often very hard to light. A lot of brands available are now self-lighting, so all you need is a lighter or a match.  You can use a charcoal lighter that uses electricity or a good propane torch.  Pile your briquettes like a pyramid before you light them. When you have a big pile, you are going to have a lot of heat.

It’s also possible to use some lighter fluid. It makes lighting your briquettes very easy, but it also may give your meat a taste of petroleum.

You can also use the charcoal chimney, which is a cylinder which is tall and made for helping you light charcoal.  Put some crumpled paper in the chimney’s lower section and your briquettes in the upper part of the chimney, then light your paper. When your briquettes are ready for cooking, then you rearrange them in your grill.

If you wish your food to have a flavor that is smoky, add hickory or mesquite chips. Before you put them in your charcoal, soak your chips in some water for at least 30 minutes.

Backyard Grill Tip 4: Adjust the Gas

Lighting as well as adjusting temperature is easy when you use a gas grill, but your food isn’t going to have as much flavor as it does with charcoal. It’s possible to add some wood chips to give it that smoky flavor, but it’s going to be required that you put them in a smoker box made of metal before you put them down into the heat.

These are some tips that you can use when you are cooking on your grill. If you would like to get a grill for your home or to upgrade your current one, we have plenty of outdoor grills from which to choose. Just contact us to find out what we offer.

dont have enough appliances for holiday cooking outdoor fireplace to the rescue

You’re going to have a record number of people at the house for the holidays this year. You’re carefully planning what has to be cooked the night before and then refrigerated, so you’ll have enough room in the oven for other food that must be cooked. Wouldn’t it be great if you had four ovens, two cooktops and a brick oven for keeping the food warm? Actually, you do have the brick oven. It’s just outside in the outdoor kitchen. Usually used for ambiance when guests are over, the outdoor fireplace presents the perfect “appliance” for helping cook holiday meals. Seriously, you don’t have to be a pioneer to make good use of the outdoor kitchen fireplace. Haven’t you noticed that only around the holidays do the kids decide to become helpful, as long as there is food to be tasted? Let them keep an eye on what’s cooking indoors while you create magic outdoors. You’ll need the right wood for flavoring the foods, a cast iron grate for resting pans over the coals, cooking utensils for stirring and turning as well as sturdy kitchen twine for rotisserie-cooking meats.

The Wood

You’ll need enough wood to make a respectable bed of coals over which to cook the food. Quick-burning woods like pine and a decent pile of sticks and branches for keeping it burning are good. Once that’s done, it will be time to place the wood for flavoring the foods. Fruit woods are best for this such as apple but many chefs (yes, chefs) use oak and hickory as well. You’ll also need tools with which to rake the coals onto and around the cooking pot or pan such as a small shovel and rake. Make sure if the tools have wooden shafts that they don’t catch fire.

The Grates

Although there are blacksmiths in the Virginia/DC area that can whip up a cast iron cooking grate, it might be easier to go to a sportsman’s store for cast iron Dutch ovens, legged iron grates, fireplace arms upon which to hang cast iron pots and even legged cooking pots and pans. You can always use bricks and concrete blocks as platforms on which to place the cooking pots and pans, all the while keeping the coals raked up and around the pans. Have plenty of hot holders and towels at hand for handling hot pans as they are turned to evenly cook the foods inside.

Rotisserie Cooking

Since we told you that you didn’t have to be pioneer woman to cook outdoors, we’ll let you off the hook with the rotisserie skewer. However, if you need to cook meats over the fire, then affix something to the mantel on the fireplace. It should be strong enough to hold some weight. To this affix the kitchen twine and make it long enough to dangle the meat before the fire and coals. Now truss up your meat, fowl or roast so that it is compact. Tie the trussed meat to the twine hanging by the fire. The weight of the meat, fowl or roast will make itself slowly turn by the fire, evenly cooking both outside and inside. When the meat is crisp and brown, you have yourself a fine dinner!

Into the Coals

Instead of putting the kids to oven duty in the house, grab some tin foil, some ears of corn, potatoes, carrots, onions and celery as well as any other veggie you put into your recipes. Dice, slice or leave them whole, but wrap them in tin foil, season them and then place them directly into the hot coals. In no time you will have either ingredients for other dishes or stand-alone veggies to complement your meal. Apples for the pie can be cooked this way as well.

A Word about Cross-Contamination

Nothing looks prettier than a roast bird on a platter surrounded by smoking dishes of aromatic foods. However, nothing is uglier than the emergency room full of people suffering food contamination. When that beautiful bird was placed back on the platter on which its raw self came to the fireplace, then cross-contamination happened. Make very sure dishes on which raw meats were placed are washed thoroughly before placing other foods on them for a happy and healthy holiday season.

For over 30 years, Lawn and Leisure has witnessed some marvelous cooking in the Virginia and D. C. area. Well known for our integrity and customer service, we make very sure our products are serviced regularly for your comfort and convenience.

how to create the space of your dreams using outdoor furniture

In the spring, fall, and summer, being outside is always a nice luxury. Especially if you have a beautifully landscaped home with a patio, deck, or just a nice outdoor living space, then you need to consider getting outdoor furniture. Nice outdoor patio furniture will really tie a space together.

What space are you buying outdoor patio furniture for?

When you begin your search for outdoor furniture, you first need to decide where you want to place it. Keep in mind the size of the space. It may be helpful to measure before you come to the showroom because people often overestimate the amount of space they have to work with.

Knowing the space and what exactly you want to do with it, like adding some couches or just some additional chairs, will help guide you in the right direction. Often times when you begin looking at beautiful outdoor furniture, you may lose sight of the space that you have available and just want to buy everything you can. Instead, be sure to know exactly what you want, because it will help to focus your shopping and make sure you get the right furniture for your needs.

Understand your outdoor patio furniture budget

Before you begin your outdoor furniture shopping, it's also important to know your budget. When you are looking for quality products then you'll want to be sure that your budget reflects that. You should also prioritize which items you want the most, and which ones you could add on to your collection as time goes on. Once you see all the beautiful options, it will be difficult not to want to get everything in sight.

What is your style?

Another question you must ask yourself: what is your personal style? Are you looking for something that coordinates with the rest of your home, or are you looking for pieces that make a statement outside?

No matter your personal style, there is outdoor patio furniture for you. If you like modern clean lines, then you can certainly find pieces to match with your taste, perhaps furniture with metal that has clean angles and lines.

Wicker is also a great product that is used a great deal with outside furniture. Wicker furniture tends to have a cozier feel to it, just because of the nature of the product itself. It's important to know that both wicker and metal are very durable and will keep your outside furniture looking new longer, and can be easily cleaned.

What functionality do you want your outdoor patio furniture to have?

When picking out the furniture to furnish your outdoor space, you want to make sure you know what you want to use it for. Perhaps you'd like to add a fire pit element to your backyard space, in which case you should be sure to look at one of the many beautiful tables with a fire element integrated right in. If you are adding chairs near a pool, you may want to be sure they have reclining features in order to allow the best soaking in the sun.

Wanting to feed and entertain guests on a regular basis? Then you'll want to consider a beautiful dining room set and a nice seating arrangement. Whether you are looking for more practical pieces, or over the top comfortable and indulgent pieces, you'll be able to find exactly what are you are looking for as long as you know what you're looking for ahead of time. 

Outdoor furniture is a great way to finish an empty space and extend your living area to outside your home. When the weather is beautiful, there is nothing better than going outside and relaxing. By having outdoor furniture you are adding even more living space to your home, adding another place to entertain guests, spend quiet time reading a book, or just relaxing together. When you are ready to create an amazing atmosphere outside, please contact us.

complete your unfinished landscape with a large patio furniture collection

If you have a large, beautiful, and unfinished landscape, you should think about moving on with the final steps, which will allow you to thoroughly enjoy the landscape once it is finished. Once you have taken care of the landscape part of the project, you need to start looking at the hardscape, which includes things such as architectural features, retaining walls, and patio furniture. With a large enough landscape, you can find a fitting home for most outdoor furniture to maximize your enjoyment of the space.

Lounge Chairs

When you want to get comfortable and read the news or a book outside, you want to have a lounge chair set up. If you plan on entertaining, then go for multiple lounge chairs. These are generally best placed near the entrance of the backyard, for easy access to your indoor amenities.

A Hammock

If you would like to take relaxation to the next level, you should consider getting a hammock. Although hammocks are commonly known for attaching to two trees for its main support, you do not need to get a hammock that is supported in this way for it to work in your backyard. It is possible to find hammocks that are designed in a way that no additional support is required to lay down in them.

Patio Chairs

Standard patio chairs are equipped with UV-resistant material to maximize their lifespan. It is also worth looking into materials that are not prone to rot or rusting as it will encounter the elements regularly. Our in-store experts can help you pick out the chairs that are right for your conditions.

An Outdoor Couch

When you have multiple family members or friends that you want to entertain, you should think about getting an outdoor couch. If you have a deck or patio, you will find that these areas are ideal for a couch, and having overhead protection is even better. An outdoor couch can complement your patio funishing, giving you more room for people and expanding your useable space.

A Bench

With a large and well-organized garden, you should have no problem fitting a bench in your backyard. Benches give you a chance to soak up the sun and enjoy being surrounded by a beautiful garden or water feature. You spent a lot of time and money installing features or gardening, why not have a place to relax and enjoy them?

A Fire Pit

If you like to roast marshmallows or invite family and friends over on a regular basis, you should think about getting a fire pit installed in your backyard. A fire pit is easy to maintain and even easier to use. It gives your backyard a focal point that your guests can gather around.

An Outdoor Dining Table

A large and attractive backyard is the perfect candidate for an outdoor dining table. If you have an outdoor kitchen, this is a no-brainer. Your guests will need somewhere to eat.

Dining Chairs

Along with the dining table, you will need to get some dining chairs. Since these will be outdoors, you'll want dining chairs designed to take on whatever nature can throw at them.

Investing in patio furniture is an outstanding way to make your backyard livelier and turn it into an excellent place for spending time with family and friends. Contact us if you have any questions.

make sure your propane refills are handled safely with these simple tips herndon vaEnjoying a barbecue this summer can be such a nice way to spend time with friends and family, but safety needs to your first priority when transporting propane tanks and setting them up near your outdoor grill. In order for the propane refills to be handled safely the entire time, you’ll need to have the right know-how to avoid a potential fire or another disaster.

Secure the Propane Tank to Keep It Upright

When driving the propane tank home, it’s crucial that it’s positioned upright and isn’t going to be at risk of toppling over. On its side, the tank could open and allow gas to escape, putting you in danger of a fire. Secure it with a seatbelt in the backseat or use a box to place the tank in carefully on the drive home.

Inspect the Tank for Leaks Before Refilling

Refilling the same propane tank time and time again can be an effective way to save money, but it’s important that you check the tank thoroughly for any signs of leaks before using. Even a small leak can be extremely dangerous, making routine inspections so important.

Never Leave the Tank Exposed to Sunlight

Hot temperatures can be dangerous to your propane tank, making it important to never leave the tank inside your car for a prolonged period. Along with being careful about storing in your car, make sure to always keep the propane tank shielded from the sun.

If storing a propane tank outdoors, make sure you keep it somewhere that it won't be exposed to direct sunlight at any time. 

Contact us if you have any questions about propane tank refilling.

wow whats that smell did you properly store your patio furniture last winter

The baking heat of summer added to the howling cold winds of winter spell disaster for outdoor furniture fabrics. Tis the time to store the patio furniture before the wet winter accumulations destroy your outdoor fabrics all together. There are a few considerations, though, before you slam the shed door until spring. You’ll need to ensure your patio furniture is mold and mildew free before you store them. Certain conditions could cause mold and mildew to form on your outdoor furniture while it’s in storage. Let’s take a look at what causes mold and mildew and how to prevent it forming during storage.

Outdoor Furniture Fabrics

Chances are good that your outdoor furniture fabrics are synthetic like acrylic or polyester. Canvas and mesh are also popular outdoor fabrics. Synthetics are usually coated with something that waterproofs and weatherproofs them. These coatings frequently last the life of the furniture, if they are properly maintained. However, onslaughts from the weather can and will break down anything left in its path. Outdoor fabrics left in the sun and winter winds generally last only a couple seasons. That’s before mold and mildew sink their claws into the fabric.

Mold and Mildew

Mildew is a plant, a kind of fungus, which then turns into mold. Mold is actually of benefit to the environment, because it breaks down organic matter such as leaves and debris. Once it reduces its prey to its basic denominator, it moves on to adjacent organic matter. Mold spores fly through the air and get on and into everything. Add moisture from heat and humidity to the mix and you have a recipe for brownish grayish stains feeding on your organic materials. Also remember that moisture in the form of sun lotions and bug sprays adds to the problem. Mold and mildew love warm, moist dark places where they can feed and live without being noticed. Most homeowners look for it behind walls, beneath floors, behind the wallpaper and beneath leaky windows, in basements and in attics. The truth is, it can grow anywhere anytime the environment is right.

Cleaning Mold and Mildew off Outdoor Furniture

Modern fabrics are made to be weatherproof, waterproof and colorfast. If homeowners have misplaced the instructions, allow us to give you some cleaning advice. Bleach is the best chemical with which to clean mold and mildew off outdoor fabrics. Test an unobtrusive spot to see if the bleach will fade the pattern and colors. First, rub off and vacuum the outdoor fabric. If it won’t fade, then mix one cup bleach in a gallon of warm water and spray it on the affected item. Note to homeowners: if cleaning mold and mildew is a regular problem, the bleach mixture could very well eat up the textile. If the outdoor cushions become stained and you fear mildew, then mix one teaspoon borax and one teaspoon dishwasher detergent to one quart of warm water and spray on the stains. Give it about 15 minutes and rub off. Dry in the sun thoroughly. If these things are a regular occurrence, then prevention is the key to preserving your patio furniture.

Do This before Storing Outdoor Furniture

Since washing machines, clothes driers and dry cleaners destroy the finish on outdoor fabrics, then cleaning them as we discussed above is better for the longevity of the fabric. Make very sure the items are thoroughly dry. The tiniest bit of moisture could have you gasping for air when you open the shed door next spring. Placing the cushions in a mattress bag will prevent mold from find your dry fabrics. Also placing tins of charcoal or kitty litter in the storage unit helps absorb any moisture in the air.

keep your pets safe around charcoal grills with these handy tips leesburg vaEnjoying charcoal grills during the summer can be a fantastic way to cook up fresh food and spend time with friends and family outdoors, but safety precautions are always important to consider. If you have pets such as dogs or cats that enjoy going outside with you, it’s important that you make sure to get the grill pet-proofed for their own safety with the following tips.

Set Up a Blockade Around the Grill

The easiest way to combat your pets natural curiosity around the grill is to set up a blockade. This can be done in a number of ways, but the result should always be making it more difficult for your pets to reach the grill. Some good options include typing up your dog far away from the grill or using fencing around your patio area where the grill is being used.

Make Sure a Screen is Set Up

If you don’t want to use a blockade, but are still worried about your dog or cat becoming burned from flying embers, it’s important you use a screen. While you won’t be using the screen while actively cooking, it can come in handy when the grill is cooling down or in between uses.

Avoid Feeding Your Pet From the Grill

One of the most common reasons why pets get too close to the grill is because they’ve gotten used to being fed scraps from the grill. In order to keep the grill free of being touched by your pet, make sure not to feed them from the grill so they won’t associate it with treats.

make-choosing-your-first-grill-a-little-easier-reston-va

Outdoor grilling season is here. If you're thinking this is the year to purchase your first outdoor grill, that's super exciting! But with such a variety of features and brands, it can also be overwhelming. Here are a few tips on getting started. 

Gas or Charcoal

One isn't better than the other, though committed grillers will likely side with one over the other depending on what they use. 

Think about your priorities. If you are currently career-focused with little free time, go with a gas grill. It's easier to use and to clean. If taste is more important than efficiency, consider a charcoal grill for that classic barbecue flavor. 

In general, gas grills are often a better option for the grilling novice because of its ease and consistency. 

Know your budget

Grills range in price from the teens to thousands. At every price point, you can find a great grill or a total ripoff, so know that any price point you choose is okay. Once you set your budget, you'll have a more manageable selection of grills to work with. 

Know your space 

You want your grill to look good and fit well. If you get a grill that's too big for the space, you'll be uncomfortable cooking, which means you won't use it as often. If you're working with a small outdoor space, you don't want to feel cramped or allow the grill to visually overwhelm everything else. Big spaces have more flexibility, but consider what your grill is next to and how the space will look as a whole. 

Focus on these three elements as you begin your grill search and it won't feel so overwhelming. Here at Lawn & Leisure, we can help you find the right grill for you. Contact us to get started. 

 

 

 

safety-tips-on-propane-for-grills-to-enjoy-grilling-outdoors-reston-va

Grilling can be rather enjoyable, lead to a delicious meal, and is the perfect reason to spend time with family and friends, but there are safety measures that must be taken to ensure a safe experience.

Charcoal grilling has some safety prerequisites, but propane grilling is a little more demanding, so you need to be more careful when using propane for grills by following a few safety tips.

Protect the Grill from Children and Pets

Although your pets or children might not have any bad intentions, they are naturally a safety hazard around grills, especially propane grills. Ideally, you want to keep them away from the grill at all times.

Place Your Grill in a Safe Place

A safe grill location is not just a place where there is a level surface. A propane grill should only be used outdoors, and it should always be several feet away from your home and away from potential hazards.

For instance, a grill is not safe when there are tree branches hanging overhead.

Keep the Grill Well Clean

A clean grill is not only better for having a positive grilling experience, but it makes it safer to use. Purchasing a heavy-duty grill brush is one of the best investments you can make for grilling.

Not only will it make cleaning the grill easy, but it will motivate you to clean after each use. Taking the time to clean the grill right after using it will help to prevent heavy build-up.

tools-that-will-come-in-handy-when-cooking-on-your-outdoor-fireplace-fairfax-vaOne of the best things about owning an outdoor fireplace is the ability to cook delicious meals on it. To make the most of your outdoor fireplace, a few unique cooking tools will come in handy:

  • Crane and Dutch oven, which can be useful for cooking stews and soups, or slow-cooking beans. For best results, purchase the crane and Dutch oven together so you can be sure they are compatible.
  • Rotisserie, which can allow you to cook whole chickens or leg of lamb until they are browned to perfection
  • Pie iron, which is typically made from cast iron and somewhat resembles a press. This tool is perfect for making grilled cheese and Panini sandwiches, in addition to numerous desserts
  • Skewers, to make everything from shish kabobs to roasted vegetables
  • Kettle popper, in order to make hot delicious popcorn with only a few drops of oil

In addition to these tools, a simple grate like those found on most park grills will enable you to cook directly over an open fire. Choose a grate with supporting legs that elevate it three to four inches to prevent food from burning. While you can use nearly any metal pan on one of these grates, cast iron cookware is preferred because it conducts heat well without becoming too hot. Your skillets will ideally have very long handles to make it easier for you to use them without getting burned.

There’s something about food cooked over an open fire that is appealing to everyone. If you don’t yet have an outdoor fireplace, contact us to find just how easy it is to install one in your own backyard.

 

 

dust-off-your-outdoor-furniture-and-get-it-ready-for-spring-chantilly-vaThe weather outside is getting a little warmer, which means that now is the time to dust off your outdoor furniture and get it ready for Spring. Here are some things to keep in mind to ensure your patio furniture is ready for you to enjoy again.

The first step is to take your furniture out of storage and/or remove any vinyl covers you may have placed over it in the fall. Place your furniture in a sunny area of the yard so that you can spray it down thoroughly with a garden hose. Next, use a solution of mild dish soap and water to wipe your pieces down from top to bottom. If needed, use a soft-bristled brush to help you get into hard-to-reach areas. Finish with a cool water rinse, and then allow your furniture to dry.

Cushions also need cleaning in Spring, and the best way to do that is to tie them to a clothesline so you can spray them down thoroughly. Next, scrub them vigorously with a stiff bristled (but not wire) brush on both sides. Leave them hanging until they are completely dry, unless your clothesline is in direct sunlight. In that case, you should remove them and hang them in a shaded area instead to keep them from fading.

Look each piece over carefully for signs of rust or other damage. If rust spots are discovered, sand them lightly with heavy grit sandpaper, and then touch them up with a protective paint. If the finish appears worn, you can then follow that up with a fresh coat of new paint in order to get your furniture looking like new again.

Provide some protection for your outdoor pieces by adding a coat of furniture polish to help repel dust. Finish by lubricating hardware with a thin coat of WD-40 to prevent rust from forming.

These tips will ensure your patio furniture is clean and ready for Spring use. To see the huge selection of outdoor furniture we have available, contact us.

 

 

fire-safety-tips-for-children-when-using-your-outdoor-fireplace-reston-vaOwning an outdoor fireplace can be a wonderful treat when the weather begins to warm up enough to be outside during the evenings. Whether you enjoy using the fireplace with your family or you like to throw large parties with all of your loved ones invited, it’s important that you take special care when children are around.

Taking care of your fireplace with the following tips will help reduce the chance of a fire.

Keep the Area Around the Fireplace Free of Decorations

While it can be tempting to dress up your fireplace with decorations, it’s important that you realize that these items can be a fire hazard. By removing any items near your fireplace, you can be sure that embers don’t fly out and start a fire.

Set Up Some Fireplace Doors

The easiest way to reduce the chance of a child burning themselves with the fire going is through having doors set up. These doors can help prevent anything from flying out of the fireplace and keep a child from reaching inside.

Carefully Choose Your Firewood

The firewood you burn can make a difference in how large the fire roars and how much embers are created. Generally speaking, you should choose wood that burns longer and avoid any wood with moisture.

Always Supervise When Using the Fireplace

Whenever the fire is roaring, it’s important that you keep an eye on it. Children are incredibly curious, so you’ll need to be sure that they’re not getting too close through supervision.

Enjoying a fireplace can be a wonderful way to spend time outdoors during spring, summer, and fall, but you’ll need to keep safety in mind. Contact us for more helpful safety tips.

 

 

extend-the-lifetime-of-your-patio-furniture-in-a-home-with-pets-reston-vaPets can be a joy to have, but they often come with a lot more mess than in a home without any. If you have a dog or cat that likes spending time in your patio, it’s likely that they’ll find their way on your patio furniture. The problem with this is that they can begin to make your furniture wear down, making it important for you to look into how to best care for your patio furniture.

Designate a Space for Your Pets

The easiest way to prevent your pets from damaging your patio furniture is through simply keeping them away. Dogs are fairly easy to contain with the installation of a dog run or a fence separating your patio from the rest of the yard. In the case of cats, you may want to limit their access to the outdoors altogether for the preservation of your patio furniture and their own safety.

Invest in a Patio Furniture Cover

A great way to keep your patio furniture safe from scratches and pet hair is through buying a furniture cover. These covers are generally waterproof and durable enough to last throughout all four seasons, allowing you to get the peace of mind that your patio furniture will be safe from your pets.

Choose Pet-Friendly Furniture

If you haven’t purchased any furniture for your patio just yet, it may be a good time to consider which materials would be best for your pets. Avoiding sensitive materials and opting for furniture made of wrought iron or wood can ensure that your pets won’t be able to cause any harm.

Feel free to contact us if you need any advice on caring for your patio furniture.

 

consider-your-low-maintenance-options-for-outdoor-furniture-falls-church-vaEnjoying outdoor furniture is easy, but keeping it maintained is often the problem that people have. In many cases, homeowners buy high quality furniture for their patio or outdoor space and after using it a few times, they stop with the routine maintenance and end up with dirty and rusty furniture.

It is best to consider low-maintenance outdoor furniture options to ensure quick and easy maintenance, which will make it easier for a homeowner to keep the furniture clean for routine usage.

Aluminum

Aluminum is an excellent choice for outdoor furniture, especially cast aluminum, and this is because it is not only durable and easy to maintain, but it is also rust proof. All of these benefits are the best you could ask for in outdoor furniture, so the rest comes down to finding the right style and price.

Plastic

Although it may not be the fanciest option, you cannot go wrong with plastic for the outdoors. It is often inexpensive to buy plastic outdoor furniture, and it is just so simple to maintain. With a standard hose, you can get practically any dirt or grime off of this furniture, which only takes a few minutes to do.

Wrought Iron

A heavier and slightly more demanding material to consider for outdoor furniture is wrought iron. While not being the easiest to move or clean, the overall maintenance required is quite minimal. Also, if you are looking for pieces of furniture to beautify your backyard, then wrought iron is an excellent choice.

Throughout the years, you will appreciate having furniture to enjoy your outdoor space, and having low-maintenance furniture is the icing on the cake that makes it all worthwhile.

ceramic-charcoal-grills-potomac-vaCeramic or as they are sometimes called Kamado charcoal grills is a popular new addition to the appliances designed to cook with fire in the backyard. They are modern versions of an ancient Japanese model and are generally more egg shaped than conventional charcoal grills. They are made of ceramics, terra cotta, cement, lava rock, and other refractory materials, the same stuff that pottery kilns are made of.

Because of the material, ceramic grills are better at radiating and retaining heat than more conventional grills. They can therefore be used for cooking pizza, baking bread, or for tandoori, an Indian style of barbeque that involves sticking skewers of marinated meat into a hot oven. They are great for more conventional grilling and smoking as well. For the latter, most ceramic grills come with a deflector plate that shields the meat from the direct heat of the burning charcoal.

Controlling the heat can be kind of tricky, though the grills come with intake and outflow dampers that, when you get the hang of it, work very well. Because the grills retain heat better, they take less charcoal to cook. However one should not use lighter fluid as an aid to starting the charcoal.

One caveat needs to be mentioned about ceramic grills. While it is less susceptible to flare ups, there is a danger of a similar phenomenon called a flashover. The grills are nearly air tight, so that sometimes become starved of oxygen. If you lift the lid unwarily the oxygen rushes in and can cause a fireball, so have a care,

5 Tasty Treats that can be made on a Gas Grill

Purists of taste will often tell you that you need a charcoal grill to achieve a true grilled flavor. But that is not always completely honest. Owners of gas grills can get much the same flavor, burn pattern, and taste as a charcoal unit.Here are some quick flavor smacking treats for your outdoor gas grill.

Caution, only adults should use gas grills.

1. S'mores, it is true that s'mores are best done over a camp fire. But a gas grill will work much the same. Provided you don't loose your marshmallow off the metal grill fork you can hold it just above the hot surface and you can get a fantastic brown marshmallow. Don't forget to get it into the gram cracker and chocolate sandwich while its hot. Or the chocolate wont melt.

2. For a healthy snack or great side dish at a pick nick grill some asparagus. Take the asparagus and soak them in water for about a half hour so they don't burn. Then just lay them on the metal rack till they brown and darken a bit. If you want a really tasty way, boil them a bit to soften them further and grill them on the top rack. They will take longer but the flavor will really pop.

3. It is said that, us Americans cook brussel sprouts wrong. This funny fact can actually be proven when you grill them. cut each in half and rub the open side with garlic butter. Be sure that with any veggie you soak it in water for 30 min prior to grilling so it does not burn. When you grill them do so on the top rack. They will come out with a surprising flavor. Not to spoil the fun but it wont taste like a brussel sprout the way you may know them.

4. You can also grill corn on the cob. Boil it until it is nearly cooked them grill it for a little while. You want a few dark lines all over it. This will give it a deep almost smokey flavor. You will also bring out some of the internal flavors and juices making it rather tasty.

5. For the grand finale. You can make a cake on your grill. Just heat the inside of the grill to whatever your temperature needs to be according to the recipe and put the oven safe pan of your choice inside. Most grills can get very hot so a grill thermometer will be handy for this one. You will get a slightly different flavor to your cake than what you are used to. But wherever you grill you now know you can make a cake. Nothing says awesome like a fresh baked cake at a cook out.

There are literally thousands of other ideas. Try a few of your own out and see what work for you. Your gas grill does not have to be confined to a life of cooking meat. Unleash its true power and don't bother heating your entire house up to cook. Its summer time, get out side and try some new ideas.

If you have an outdoor fireplace, you don't have to stop using it during the summer months. An outdoor fireplace is an excellent place to make delicious S'mores in on a summer evening as well. When you think of S'mores, you probably think of marshmallows, chocolate and graham crackers; however, there are actually several different ways to make them. Here are a few fun ideas you might want to try yourself:

  • Spread a bit of peanut butter on your graham crackers before adding chocolate and marshmallows
  • Drizzle some caramel ice cream topping over your marshmallows before placing it in the fire
  • Use mint chocolate chips, butterscotch morsels or any other type of baking chip you like instead of bars of chocolate
  • Add a slice of banana or strawberry
  • Place a strawberry on a skewer, and then stuff inside a large marshmallow. Melt over the fire, and then drizzle with chocolate syrup when done. Roll in crushed graham cracker crumbs and serve
  • Crush peppermint candies and sprinkle them on top of your chocolate before melting
  • Add miniature marshmallows, bite-sized chocolate and graham cracker crumbs to a drumstick-style ice cream cone before melting to make it easier to eat
  • Use chocolate or strawberry flavored marshmallows instead of plain ones
  • Cut a Butterfinger or Snickers candy bar into very tiny pieces and use in place of plain chocolate
  • Use sandwich cookies with the filling removed to make the base of the S'more
  • Spread your graham cracker with marshmallow cream, and cover with colorful sprinkles
  • Place a Reese's peanut butter cup between the two pieces of graham cracker and place a marshmallow on top

As you can see, there are virtually unlimited ways to make S'mores. Now all you need is an outdoor fireplace-contact us today in order to get started.

The Case for Charcoal Grills

In the eternal debate of gas vs charcoal grilling, Joe Brown, the New York Editor of Wired, comes down decidedly on the side of using glowing hot coals. His rationale involves the unique aroma that he says that charcoal imparts to the meat. In other words, heat is just not enough. There is a chemical process that changes the nature of the meat and makes it better when charcoal is involved. It involves something called guaiacol.

Gualacol results when lignin, the resin that holds together strands of cellulose that form wood. This in turn imparts a bacon-like taste to the meat that is being grilled. The smoky, bacony aroma that is imparted by using charcoal grills enhances the taste of anything that is cooked on them.

This is the key to what Brown says is the superiority of charcoal over gas grilling. Food is cooked the same way no matter what the heat, whether it is gas, charcoal, or whatever. But taste is only one of our five senses. That is one reason why executive chefs put an emphasis on presentation so that a dish is visually appealing, which actually enhances the taste.

We east with more than just our senses of taste. We use our sense of smell as well, so that if a dish smells pleasing then it tastes better as well. If charcoal imparts a pleasing, smoky, bacony flavor, then it follows that a cut of meat cooked on a charcoal grill is better than the equivalent meat cooked on a gas grill.

The Benefits of Charcoal GrillsMemorial Day having passed means that it is officially summertime. This means that you will likely soon be preparing for neighborhood barbeques. However, this could also mean that if you do not have a barbeque, or if your barbeque is old, it is time for you to start researching barbeques for your home. In your research, you will likely (or likely have already) come across the debate over whether gas or charcoal barbeques are the better option. To help you in making an informed decision, here is a quick overview of some of the benefits of charcoal grills.

They Cook Hotter

Unlike gas grills, which generally have a maximum temperature of 500 degrees, charcoal grills are not limited by this temperature range. You can increase the temperature of a charcoal grill much higher depending on how much charcoal you add. This can be extremely beneficial in the cooking of larger cuts of meat, as the meat will cook more evenly throughout at higher temperatures.

Charcoal Grills Allow You to Cook with Wood

One of the biggest downsides of gas grills is that the only fuel source you can use in them is gas. In charcoal grills on the other hand, you can utilize other fuel sources besides charcoal such as wood. The ability to barbeque with wood is a great upside of using a charcoal grill, as cooking with different woods allows you to incorporate extra flavors into your meat that different types of wood infuse into food.  

Charcoal Grills Make Smoking Meat Possible

Another great method of barbequing is smoking; however, when one owns a gas grill, smoking is not really an option (or at least, it is not an easy option). Charcoal grills allow you to choose to smoke meats if you would like to with relative ease.

The main benefits that charcoal grills provide over gas grills is that they provide you with a more versatile range of ways in which you can cook meat. However, gas grills can also be a great option if you do not want to deal with the hassle of burning charcoal/wood to barbeque. Contact us for advice as to whether a charcoal or gas grill would be best for your home.

Purchasing new patio furniture can be an overwhelming task due to the variety of pieces that are available, ranging in function and design with different materials used. In order for you to buy new furniture that looks great and is able to last for years, it's best to take the time to look for furniture that is built well and will continue to remain in great shape with regular use. Since the furniture will be kept outdoors, it's especially important to become familiar with the different materials that are common in this furniture and what are the best options for your purchase. 

  • Wicker: A popular choice for outdoor furniture, wicker has remained popular over the years due to the natural look that is possesses. Generally in a brown shade, wicker can be a great choice for decorating schemes ranging from contemporary to tropical. 
  • Iron: If you're interested in furniture that will last, iron can be a great option due to how durable it is. Easy to clean and durable against breaking, iron is a nice choice for anybody concerned over the quality of furniture for sale. 
  • Wood: While wood furniture is quite popular due to its classic look, it may not continue to look great when exposed to the rain and other elements. If you're set on purchasing wooden patio furniture, it's important to use a patio cover.
  • Metal: Similar to iron furniture, metal is a common choice for use in patio furniture construction due to how durable it is. This can be an excellent option if you want your new furniture to be easy to clean and don't want to be worried about the condition of the furniture worsening over time.

In order for your patio to continue looking great and your furniture to be ready to use at any time throughout the year, it's best to learn how you can maintain your furniture so that it continues to stay in great shape. A lot of people assume that outdoor deck furniture doesn't need any maintenance due to the fact that it is used outdoors, but it's still important to take care of your furniture using the following tips. 

  • Using Specific Cleaning Products: Taking a look at your options for cleaning products can help a lot since it will ensure that you can wipe away dust and grime that has built up over the months. In order for you to take the best care of your furniture using a cleaning solution, it's best to opt for the least amount of chemicals possible and choosing a product that is best for wood, plastic, or metal, based on what your furniture is made of.

 

  • Using Furniture Covers: When you're not using your furniture, it may be best to use a cover that is designed for the size of your furniture. Reducing exposure to the sunlight and the elements can help prevent serious damage to your furniture without much work involved. Choosing a cover that is designed for the size of your furniture pieces can ensure that you'll have the most effective results at preserving your furniture

.

  • Placing Furniture in Shade: In order for you to prevent your furniture from being damaged, you may want to place them in the shade. While a cover is helpful, nothing can make as big of a difference than simply placing the furniture somewhere on your deck that won't be affected by the sun.

rsz f79d3798-87cb-4dc2-86e6-48d9536beb7fShopping for deck furniture is almost as fun as planning an outdoor living space. There are so many things to consider; do you want a fire pit? Where will the grill go? What colors do you like? What materials will look the best?

A lot of people are using Pinterest to get ideas and inspiration for how they'll be decorating their deck or patio this year. Pinterest is an online collection of photos.  Every user gets to create multiple "boards" which can be likened to a bulletin board. Photos are "pinned" for easy lookup later on and each photo is linked to a website that uses the photo as an illustration. Often, these are in DIY projects or online catalogs.

Deck Ideas and Furniture

Amberlee Ederington of Arkansas has compiled a collection of over 215 beautiful photos of deck furniture. In addition to outdoor furniture ideas, her collection has great ideas for planters and DIY projects to make your deck more inviting. She has an eye for color and texture, with ideas for upcycling pallets, rehabilitating tired concrete and beautiful lighting concepts.

Outside, Decks, Furniture, Lawn Ornaments

This board is curated by Emily Woodby from Tennessee. She is drawn to quirky and inexpensive patio furniture and outdoor decor that's classy and made of unconventional materials. She has quite a few amazing tree houses in this collection, too.

Patio Lights

This one is automatically generated from a search for patio lights.  There are several boards listed here with different ideas for making patio lighting and for hanging string lights. There are ideas for using glow-in-the dark paint that recharges in the sunshine as well as ideas for temporary party lighting using glow sticks. 

Beautify the Patio

This board is filled with garden decor ideas, for both veggie gardens and urban decks. The pins found here tend to be kid friendly and colorful, with a combination of purchased and repurposed items.

 Outdoor Furniture and More

It would be completely silly to not mention that we're on Pinterest, too. We have boards dedicated to outdoor furniture, outdoor grills,  fireplaces and more backyard lifestyle topics.
