Winterizing Your Taylor Event Has Never Been Easier

Top 5 Tips for Winterizing Your Outdoor Event

Taylor, TX Winterization TipsWinter is here, but the weather has been mild enough to make the idea of an outdoor event feasible. Renting a winter tent is an obvious consideration for an outdoor event. There are some others, many of which should be done anyway to keep your home looking its best.

1) Take care of your lawn.

Leaving dead leaves on a lawn can cause spots and dead spots. Make sure to rake them regularly. Clear away any debris like fallen branches or dead plants to keep your lawn looking its best. Use a winterizer, which is a special kind of lawn food or fertilizer designed to keep roots strong during the winter. Continue watering the lawn until the first frost if the weather has been exceptionally dry. A well-hydrated lawn will be better able to resist blight pathogens and snow mold.

2) Winterize your patio or balcony.

Sweep off any debris, and then wash the patio with a pressure hose. Chairs, tables and the like should also be cleaned. Let seat cushions dry in the sun so they don’t develop mildew. If possible, store everything indoors until the day of the party to keep it clean. Otherwise, cover furniture with tarps.

3) Take care of the grill.

If you’ve been using the grill a lot during the summer, it will need to be cleaned. Fire it up and let it burn off any residue. Then use a wire brush to clean off any grime that’s left. Use a degreaser to clean out the grease tray. Then clean the exterior of the grill and get rid of any dirt or grime covering it. If you decide to store the grill inside before the event, remove the propane tank and cover it with plastic. If you plan to leave the grill outside, wait for it to cool off and then cover it with a tarp.

4) Winterize outdoor plumbing.

Add winterizing chemicals to any pools that you don’t plan on draining; they will keep the algae under control. Also check for cracks and other problems and have a professional deal with them as soon as possible. Turn off and drain any water systems you don’t plan on using during the winter. Drain any hoses and put them away. Cover any outdoor faucets with insulated jackets to keep them from freezing.

5) Get a chimenea.

A chimenea is a portable and freestanding fireplace. They are generally used on gravel areas or covered patios. They do not usually have screens, though, and they therefore should not be used on a grass lawn, wood chips or anything else that might burn.
