1. Redo your deck and repaint your porch - Give the neighbours something to whisper about. Freshen up your porch and deck this month by applying a new coat of paint or stain states Laura Gaskill.

Refreshing your deck and porch once a year will extend the life of the wood and keep it looking its best.

2. reTHINK your outdoor kitchen - Jazz up your space by adding a full outdoor kitchen. It is the season to enjoy the outdoors and what's better than having the enjoyment right from the comfort of your own home. If you are looking for quick simple updates add a few fun features — such as a work surface, bar seating or an outdoor fridge. These features will host you a great bbq party for memorial day long weekend.

4. Enjoy your Home - Reward yourself this month. Have a glass of wine or sparkling orange juice, invite some friends over turn on the music and indulge. Take pride in your home and enjoy your space.
