Outdoor living days are dwindling so it’s time to prep your patio. Take care of your outdoor furniture and it’ll last for years.
First, clean any pieces you plan to store -- cushions, hammocks, umbrellas. Trust us, you’ll be glad you did come spring! Stack patio furniture and cushions, and store in your garage or on a covered porch.
What can I leave outside? If you don’t have the room, you can leave furniture outside with heavy-duty waterproof furniture covers. These will stand up to winter weather and keep everything protected. Most granite pieces can withstand the elements so you can leave those alone, but softer stones like cast stone, marble or manufactured stone should be either covered or moved.
Your grill can remain outside, but covering it with a grill cover or protective plastic will help to maintain the exterior for years to come.
With your outdoor areas packed up, you can enjoy the cooler months guilt-free and tucked indoors.
