An outdoor space increases the living area of your house and allows more space to devote to the things you enjoy. When you think about outdoor furniture for your home, it's important to begin by planning out how you would like the space to function. Ask yourself questions like: Do I want to use my outdoor space for grilling and cooking out? Will I be using the outdoor space for hosting parties? Is it a space for solitude or will it accommodate many guests? To start, make a detailed list of things you would like to do in the space. Once you've established how the outdoor area will be utilized, you can then determine what type of furniture will be necessary. While the type and style of your furniture is important, you should keep in mind the storage solutions you have for when you won't be using your outdoor furniture. You can add years to the life of your patio furniture by storing it in a protected location, such as a garage or basement during the off season.

- Never leave your fire pit unattended. Once your done using it, be sure to put your fire out completely.
- If young children are present around the pit, be sure to pay close attention to them. Do not let them get too close to the flame.
- Set up your fire pit at a safe distance (at least 10-25 feet) from your home, any outdoor buildings, as well as any trees in your yard. Also, never use a fire pit indoors or in a covered area. Make sure there is nothing around it that could easily catch flame, such as dry leaves or wood.
- When it gets particularly windy, forgo using your fire pit until the wind dies down.
- Place your fire pit on level ground and then surround it with rocks or sand to prevent any fire from spreading.

Thanksgiving and Christmas is now behind us and winter has come, it's time to start preparing your outdoor area for the cold weather. Although that means that you probably won't be spending as much time outdoors as you do the rest of the year, you still want to be sure to protect your outdoor furniture during the winter months so that it's there for you to use and enjoy when springtime arrives. Metal furniture can rust during the cold season due to melted snow and ice. For aluminum furniture, you can add automotive wax for an extra protective layer. Wrought iron furniture can be covered with spray paint made specifically for wrought iron. Before you do this, be sure to use a wire brush to remove any rust. Once you're finished, cover the furniture with a tarp. Seat cushions and outdoor pillows will need to be removed from your outdoor furniture and kept indoors in a dry area. Utilize storage rooms, garages, or attics to store the pillows in. This trick will keep them from getting mildew. For outdoor wicker furniture, be sure to store it indoors for the winter. However, if your wicker furniture is made of synthetic materials and not natural rattan, it should be fine to stay outside during the winter. Keeping your outdoor spaces clean and beautified is good for the environment and keeps your home looking attractive.

Whether it's liquid propane or natural gas grills, mobile or immobile, the benefits are similar. The quick ignition and easy, convenient flame adjustments can make these grills simple to use for even the most amateur griller. And for those with picky eating habits, propane grills have a cleaner flavor than other types of grills. Charcoal grills will not only give you the sear you need on your steak, but deliver that smokey flavor you find at the best bbq restaurants. Whether you choose a smoker designed for low flame and high smoke, or a more traditional charcoal grill, you will be sure to have incredible results. Because it takes time for the charcoal to heat properly and with the absence of controls, charcoal grills are often for the more experienced griller. If you want to relax and take your time making your meal over a flame, these grills are right for you. For people who want the experience of a grill without the clean up of charcoal and extra expense of propane tanks, the electric grill may be just what you're looking for. Get the sear without the smoke or the flame. Electric grills are the go-to option for those who live in apartments. The easy mobility along with the no fuss assembly and clean up lets you worry less about the cooking and spend more time with the people you love.

While you're enjoying the great outdoors and the warm weather, it's important to protect yourself from the harmful effects of harsh rays. Sunscreen is essential when you plan on spending time outdoors. Even in the fall and winter months, it's still a good practice to wear sunscreen daily. Limit your time in direct sunlight to a few hours, and if you feel that you are getting burnt, go indoors immediately. Also, try to spend your time outdoors during the summer in the morning and evening when the sunlight and heat are more manageable. Whether you're gardening or hiking, reading a book or mowing the lawn, be sure to cover up as much as you can. Hats are a great way to shield your face from the sun and also keep your head cool. Quick-dry clothing can keep your skin protected while also helping to wick away sweat and heat from your body. If you're sitting outdoors enjoying a meal or a good book, a patio umbrella is another great way to get some shade, keeping yourself cool and safe. At Patio and Hearth Shop in Rocky Mount, NC, we offer a number of outdoor furniture options, including a wide variety of patio umbrellas.

Summer brings long hours of sunshine, giving you more time in the day to be outside. Unfortunately, all of the sunshine also brings some pretty heavy heat, but don't let that keep you stuck inside this summer. There are a lot of different ways to keep cool outdoors, even when the thermometer is reading off the charts. One great way to enjoy the beauty of the outdoors as well as the comfort of the indoors is to turn your deck area into a screened-in porch. You can go an extra step and install a ceiling fan to keep you even cooler. If a screened-in porch isn't in your budget, we totally get it. Instead, use a canopy or a sun umbrella to give yourself some shade. Bring an electric fan outdoors to create a breeze. You can also purchase an inexpensive kiddy pool and dip your toes in the water for a quick cool off while you're outside. To cool down after dinner, enjoy some ice cream or a refreshing margarita on the rocks! Avoid warm drinks like coffee while you're outside. This summer, don't let the heat keep you inside. Lay back on our outdoor furniture and use our creative hacks to keep cool this summer! For all of your outdoor furniture needs in Rocky Mount, NC, stop by one of our Patio and Hearth Shop showrooms.

That includes your car, your sidewalk, your windows, and your outdoor entertaining spaces. Since no one wants to sit down on patio furniture that's covered in a thick yellow coat of pollen, we have put together some pollen cleaning tips for you. That way, you can enjoy the beautiful spring weather without being coated by pollen in the meantime. The first step to removing pollen from your deck, porch, or outdoor furniture, is to spray it down with a garden hose. This will wash away any fresh layers of pollen, but it may not get the pollen that has been sitting around for a while on your furniture. To remove pollen that has settled in and is caked on, you will probably need to do some scrubbing after you've rinsed off the top layer of pollen. Fill up a spray bottle with warm water and a few drops of dish soap. Spray this on your patio furniture and scrub with a bristled brush. Then, use the garden hose to rinse off the water, soap, and remaining pollen. Sit your furniture out in the sun to let it dry.

Whether you prefer a garden full of flowers, or one with fruits and veggies, a garden can truly enhance your outdoor space. At Patio and Hearth Shop, we carry outdoor furniture, appliances, and statues that can add to your gardening space. With these plus the flowers and food you plant, you might find yourself wanting to spend more time outdoors than you do inside. When it comes to gardening, you want to be aware of what flowers and plants will work best with your climate and the amount of sunlight that your home gets. Also, you'll want to look into which plants take more time and attention than others. If you are just beginning on your gardening journey, or if you don't have a lot of time to devote to your garden, stay away from the more high-maintenance plants. The foundation to a great garden is great soil. Make sure that you purchase potting soil that is full of nutrients that will help your plants to grow. Once you've planted everything, be sure to cover your gardening area with mulch to help prevent weed growth and to help your plants retain moisture. No matter what you decide to plant, be sure to enjoy it! At Patio and Hearth Shop, we believe that time spent outdoors is time well spent.
