Deck Out Your Outdoor Space for Summer: Josh Temple, Host of DIY Network's "House Crashers" Has Simple and Inexpensive Tips for Transforming Your Backyard into an Outdoor Oasis

With summer officially just days away, it's time to pull out the grill and dust off your patio furniture. But before you fire up, and settle into your lounge chair, be sure your outdoor space is truly summer ready. Whether you have a small deck, a mid-sized patio or a large backyard, you don't have to spend a lot of money (or time) to create a relaxing and enjoyable area for BBQ's, picnics and get-togethers.

Josh Temple, Host of DIY Network's "House Crashers" and a licensed contractor, suggests and demonstrates inexpensive ways to transform your backyard into an outdoor oasis. Josh's simple tips include checking the area for loose nails, bricks or cracked concrete; removing clutter and unnecessary items such as hoses, sticks or leaves; and keeping your outdoor furniture looking good all summer long by wiping down cushions or cleaning the grill and accessorizing with little touches, including plants, outdoor lighting and lanterns. Josh also talks about a recent survey that reveals how surprisingly few people are cleaning their grills, tables and chairs.
