Having a stress-free backyard barbecue might be harder than you think. Aside from the hassle of organizing the event, calling the guests on time and preparing your grill along with the recipe in advance, there’s also a matter of avoiding the damage that could be done to your lawn.
A successful barbecue is no easy feat, and if you want your lawn to survive, you’ll have to consider following at least some of these tips:
• It’s important to start planning your barbecue at least a few days before the deadline. When it comes to tidying up your yard and preparing the lawn, 2-3 days minimum of advanced preparation will be required.
• Mow the lawn one last time. You’ll want to make sure it’s nice and tidy before your guests arrive. This should be done about two days before the big event. It best to lay down a drought tolerant grass leaving little maintenance to be done.
• Make sure you turn off the automatic sprinklers before the barbecue. You might want to do it the day before you set up your grill and start cooking, so that the grass has time to dry. Also, make sure that they stay off along with any other automated system (such as your outdoor lighting), if you don’t need it.
You don’t generally have to do anything else except prepare the decorations and get ready for the big day. Once your guests arrive, they will definitely be impressed with your beautiful lawn.
