Prepare Your Home for a Backyard Barbecue

Easy steps to ensure your backyard barbecue goes off without a hitch.

Who doesn’t love a good outdoor party? Food may even taste better when you’re sitting outside with the warm sunshine on your shoulders. By putting in a bit of prep work before the party, you can ensure your alfresco entertaining is perfect!

Give your lawn some TLC.

Depending on what the weather plans to do on the day of your party, you may need to mow, rake, or re-sod patches of your lawn where it’s dry or yellow. It’s also a good idea to do a quick walk around to check for holes or tripping hazards on the ground.

Check out the deck.

Look for any spots on your deck that may need a touch of paint or a vigorous scrub. Check your deck to ensure that there are no signs of structural damage. Any imperfections may be a headache when there is an influx of people lingering on it. Check the stability, look for wood rot, and remove any stray nails.

Designate a barbecue area.

When you’re grilling, you’ll need a space that’s safe from heat and hot oil. Place your grill away from fences, structures, and overhanging trees. Ensure that it’s on stable ground, and allows you space for grilling without guests interfering.

Create a kid zone.

Make a portion of the backyard kid-friendly, complete with cornhole, hopscotch, and other activities that will keep children happy for a few hours. You’ll want to ensure that this area is well away from the grill itself!

Light it up.

Lighting is one of the quickest and most affordable ways to enhance an outdoor party. Line walkways with solar lights and add string lights to fences and trees.
