Tips on How to Properly Staycation this Long Weekend

Keeping Your Lawn Healthy & Green for Company

Of course, you will want your lawn to look perfect for when family and friends come to visit so to ensure this happens, don’t mow your grass too short and keep the turf properly hydrated!

Keeping your grass hydrated with the right amount of water is key. Giving too much water will suffocate the turf and therefore diminish in colour.

Picking The Perfect Meal

A barbeque feels like the only way to go during a long weekend, so to ensure you have satisfied guests, you must select the perfect foods! Hamburgers and hotdogs are a staple for an outdoor gathering as well as corn on the cob. While you're probably thinking, 'what about dessert?' cheesecake. Cheesecake is an American classic dessert that most people love and will enjoy.



Keeping people engaged and excited is the best part of any gathering. Plan ahead and create the perfect playlist for background music! You don’t want there to be any awkward silence, so music is a must-have.

The other best part of any summer holiday is, of course, fireworks! Going to your local park to watch them or pitching in with others to create your own show is a great option for added fun. Fireworks are the best part of the night because they can be in any color or size and when they explode, they are breathtaking! They solidify the perfect ending to your holiday celebration.


Wishing you a fun and safe long weekend, from your local Weed Man Lawn Care!
