How To Get Your Backyard Ready for a Summer BBQ

As the dog days of summer set in, many people throw their final summer parties to wish the season farewell. You can do the same with a backyard BBQ of your own. Figuring out how to get your backyard ready for a summer BBQ is the key to its success. Find out what will make your backyard party memorable.

Rejuvenate Your Lawn

Inspect your lawn for bare spots and anthills so that you can spray for pests and regrow bald patches. Further, trim bushes and trees. Maintaining your exterior shrubbery will give your backyard a clean appearance.

Decorate Your Yard

Using string lights, plants, and landscaping, you can decorate your yard to prepare for a backyard BBQ. Tiki torches are one of the best ways to provide mood lighting throughout the night for your party. Plus, if you use scented tiki torch fuel that smells like citronella or eucalyptus, they’ll help keep bugs away for a much pleasanter evening.

Provide Seating

Guests will need a place to sit while they eat. In addition to seating that promotes conversation, ensure your backyard setup includes at least one table and chairs. Perhaps a picnic table will provide enough seating and the right vibe for your party.

Set Up Your Grill

The grill will be the center of attention at your backyard BBQ, so ensure that it’s clean and has enough fuel to get you through the party. Further, make sure you set up enough space for cooking.

Create a Bar

Guests will want to eat and drink before the main course is ready. Set up a bar with snacks and beer or cocktails to keep people satisfied throughout the night. Consider using a portable cart you can tote closer to the firepit or bring inside in case of rain.

The right food, drinks, and decorations will make your party a success. Keep this guide for how to get your backyard ready for a summer BBQ bookmarked for each time you want to throw a party.
