As the seasons change, we can barely wait to spend more time in the outdoors. Gardening, entertaining, playing—we’re just counting down the days ‘til we can do it all! But as we prep our patio furniture and start planning our first party of the season, there are a few hidden dangers that we’ve got to check in on.
While many know how to spot poison ivy and would run away at the sight of huge spiders, the lesser-known hazards have us a little worried. Be sure to do a thorough checklist around your home’s exterior to ensure a safe and totally happy outdoor season for you, your family, and guests. Get informed by your local resources about any plants or bugs specific to your region to watch out for when gardening and clearing your outdoors.
