Your Guide to a Better Summer

Spending time outside is one of the biggest perks of summer, but without proper preparation, this activity soon becomes a headache and a hassle thanks to pests, hot weather, and other discomforts. Rather than end your fun, prepare for these expected summer occurrences now and avoid frustrations later.

Skin protection is important year-round but even more vital when you spend more time outside in the hot sun. Arm yourself with plenty of sunscreen. You should pick a product with an SPF15 or higher and reapply every few hours when outdoors. Be sure to wear a hat and sunglasses as well. Sun protection is vital to your good health and reduces the risks of heatstroke.

We need plenty of cool shade when outside or the heat will send us back inside quickly. There are a few options for getting shade. If you use a patio, make sure there is a table with an umbrella. Or, add a swimming pool to the backyard for wet and wild fun. Or, install a gazebo or a tent on your property for ultimate shade and style.
