It’s May! Make Your Outdoor Living Space a Happy Place


Whether you’re grilling steaks, cutting the graduation cake, or giving thanks to Mom, your deck will be the ideal spot for a celebration.Celebration is what your outdoor living space is intended for. That’s what we think. So now that May’s fair weather is in full swing, you have more than just one opportunity to get outside for some fun in the sun.

Here’s our question: how do you use your deck to celebrate? We’ve got a few ideas of our own to inspire you.

Take Mom to the Deck:

Be honest: where would you be without your mother? And even if it isn’t possible to give your own mom the Mother’s Day celebration she deserves, there’s always reason to celebrate your wife, your sister, your grandmother, or any woman who’s helped shape your life.

On Mother’s Day, bring mom to the deck. Hang up her favorite flowers, put a refreshing beverage in her hand, and show her that you care about everything’s she’s given you. Even though there’s never a wrong time to thank mom, Mother’s Day is your chance to go the extra mile.

Wish the Graduate a Good Future:

For high school seniors, school is almost over! May is their time to also plan for summer fun before college begins. And during those remaining months before moving into the freshman dorms, students get to experience a little downtime, get out with friends, and maybe even earn a little lawn-mowing cash. Of course, there’s no better spot than your outdoor living space to make every day a vacation day.

After the student in your life receives their diploma, take them home to a nice spread on your deck. Put on some music, fire up the grill, and gather family and friends around to wish your graduate the brightest future.

And if your student is “too cool” for barbecues, there’s nothing wrong with pizza on the deck!



Goodbye April Showers, Hello May Flowers:

In the Northern hemisphere, Old Man Winter has stopped blowing his silver breath. And as we all know, spring opens with nonstop rain showers in April. Now that the wet weather has subsided, get out to your outdoor living space to enjoy a cold drink and warm sunshine.

Spend a Saturday afternoon with the kids and your partner away from the television set. Read a book in your hammock. When the evening draws its shade, light a fire in the pit to celebrate the warm evening.


No Particular Reason, Let’s Just Celebrate Life:

How about a barbecue this Saturday without any direct occasion to celebrate? What’s so great about composite decking products is that you can create a second home outside of your house.

With an outdoor living space, you can design your personal paradise--from outdoor fireplaces to hammocks to pools. The space is yours to do with what you want, and bring people together.

Our suggestion: use your deck for a weekly celebration of the good life. It’s your happy place.

In the comments below, share with us some ideas on how you use your outdoor living space to celebrate. With Mother’s Day and graduation season coming up, how will you use your Fiberon composite decking to live the good life?
