12 Ways to Revitalize Your Outdoor Living Area

I’m often amazed at the number of customers and acquaintances (who I’ve known for years) who say to me “Oh, I didn’t realize that you do pavers too, Joe. Had I known, I would’ve had you pave my pool deck!”

When I hear things like this, I shake my head a little and say to myself “How can I possibly get the word out any louder and clearer that I am here to help you?”

Don’t get me wrong, pool cleaning & maintenance makes up a large portion of our business and I am so thankful for the trust that you put in my company to do what’s right, even when you’re not home to monitor us.

But what I REALLY love to do is to…

Create & Restore Swimming Pools and Backyard Environments

I love it when someone comes to me and says “Joe, I have a pool in my backyard that’s been around for 15 years. The pump is bad, I think there’s a leak in it, and the whole thing just looks drab. What can we do to give it some life?”

Or someone else will say “Joe, I’m building a new house on the Caloosahatchee and I want an entertainment area in my backyard so that my family and I can take advantage of the gorgeous weather here in Southwest Florida.”

When people come to me knowing that they want something different to liven up their homes (whether they have a clear vision or not), I love having the opportunity to help them become more comfortable in their own homes.

  • Families can eat & spend time together at their outdoor kitchen
  • Friends can meet and enjoy each others company while gathered around the fire pit
  • Children can enjoy a fantastic pool party with their friends for their birthday
  • Lovers can enjoy each others company in their own little slice of heaven

That is what gets me out of bed in the morning!

I also love to educate people on the possibilities of what they’re backyard can become. That’s why I put together the eBook shown above as well as the others in my eBook library. And the best part is that they’re all free!

Over the last few months, I’ve given you free tips on revitalizing your outdoor living area and here they are:

This is the twelfth of 12 Ways to Revitalize Your Outdoor Living Area which can also be downloaded from our free eBook library.

If you have taken all of the suggestions we’ve given you recently, then you are probably already having an amazing experience in your outdoor space! Here is one last suggestion to give it an extra special touch when you are not using your pool.

If you are having a party or a special occasion where you don’t intend for anyone to swim, consider “decorating” your swimming pool with floating objects.

Candles make a stunning appearance in a nighttime pool. You can buy floating candles at department and craft stores. They are designed to be wide and flat which allows them to float along the surface of the water. Never leave candles unattended in any circumstances.
