Today is summer solstice, which also means it’s the first official day of summer. Summer solstice refers to when the earth’s axial tilt is most inclined towards the sun, thus creating the longest day of the year. And with the arrival of summer, it means endless possibilities for using your outdoor space.
Summer and barbecue seem to always go hand in hand. And now with longer warmer days, it’s time to dust off your grill and start flipping those burgers. Many grill manufacturers offer delicious barbecue recipes, ranging from lamb and shrimp kebabs to smoked brisket and spicy baked beans. Suggesting new recipes and barbecue tips is one way to help your customers welcome in the summer.
During the summer months, many people also start thinking about outdoor home improvement projects. Whether it’s purchasing a new set of patio furniture or completely redoing an outdoor-living space, consumers know that there is no better time than the summer to finally tackle projects that have been on their minds year round.
As we celebrate the start of the outdoor-living industry’s favorite season, we here at Patio & Hearth Products Report wish you a relaxing and fun-filled summer–as well as a profitable selling season!
Happy Summer Solstice!
