HAUPPAUGE, N.Y., Sept. 25, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Inground pool liners manufacturer, LOOP-LOC, shares tips for preparing your pool deck for fall and winter.
When it comes time to prepare your pool deck for the cooler months, the first order of business is to clear it of any leaves and brush. Make any repairs, then power wash it with deck cleaner. After it dries, reseal it before the weather turns too cold.
Next, place some weather-safe plants around the deck that will withstand the fall and winter months. Summer pots, window boxes, and hanging baskets can be repurposed to hold evergreen winter accents such as rhododendron and holly. Weave in some twigs to provide a touch of color and texture. Make sure to water them during dry periods.
A bird feeder is a wonderful addition to a fall/winter deck. Enjoy watching the feathered antics from the warmth of your house. Keep the feeder full, add some suet cakes, and birds are sure to frequent the deck. Adding a bird bath with a warmer and placing some twigs over it so they can drink but not bathe, will also encourage them to fly about the yard. Maintain some dormant perennials such as black-eyed Susan, coneflower, and ornamental grasses during the autumn and winter months to encourage birds to scratch for the seeds.
This time of the year is also the perfect opportunity to add items such as a bench, trellis, or garden sculpture. Install some low-voltage or LED lighting that will not only highlight the landscape, but allow the opportunity to relax in the spa, bird watch, or survey other wildlife in their natural habitat.
Finally, don't forget to cover the pool with a LOOP-LOC safety pool cover. These safety pool covers meet and exceed ASTM guidelines for safety covers and safeguard the pool liner while ensuring that pets and people cannot gain access to the pool when it is not in use.
