5 Ways to Spend More Time Outside in the Spring


Are you feeling a little cooped up and want to get outside? Us, too! Thankfully, the weather is starting to get warmer, and we’re all looking forward to getting outside more. Here at Mesa Awning, we love giving people the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors more, which is why we love installing pergolas and awnings. There are so many ways to enjoy these spaces, so let’s take a look at just a handful of them.

1. Host a BBQ

Who doesn’t love a good old-fashioned neighborhood BBQ on a Saturday night? As the weather gets warmer, it’s time to round up all your friends and family and invite them over to enjoy your backyard kitchen. We guarantee you’ll be the life of the party when you have enough space for everyone to mingle and enjoy some home-cooked food together. BBQs are also perfect for children’s birthday parties or adult dinner parties where you can catch up and have some laughs with people you haven’t seen all winter long.

2. Read a Book

The spring weather is always inviting us outside, even when we don’t have anything to do. So, if you find yourself in this boat on a Sunday afternoon, take advantage and dive into a good book while you enjoy some shade under your pergola. This area is perfect for a swinging bench seat or even a hammock, giving you the ultimate outdoor cozy space for a good read. You can even string up your favorite lights for more lighting as the afternoon turns into the evening. Or if you want to add more greenery, try hanging some ivy for even more shade.

3. Enjoy Happy Hour

Warmer weather means open patios. So, if you want to spend more time outside this spring, find a great new outdoor patio with some coworkers or friends after work. Or you can even host at your own home, gathering everyone outdoors under your new patio awning. To spice up the hour, everyone in attendance can take turns making their favorite drink for the group to try. There’s nothing quite like a great cocktail enjoyed with friends while soaking up the fresh air.

4. Host a Girls’ Brunch Date

Haven’t seen your girlfriends in a while? Then why not be the host to an amazing outdoor brunch date? Choose a favorite spot for the group anywhere in the city, or whip up some delicious brunch dishes at home. Nothing beats getting together with friends and enjoying bottomless mimosas with a side of breakfast foods. Then, set the table with some fresh flowers and fun dishware and you’re good to go!

5. Take Your Sweat Session Outdoors

Staying fit and active is vital for your health, as is getting some fresh air after a long winter season. So, once the weather warms up, it’s time to take that sweat session and move it outside. Sign up for a yoga class in the park or take your workout to the backyard underneath the pergola. Your body will love the movement and your mind will love being out in nature. Just don’t forget to stay hydrated and put on that sunscreen before class.
