“April, dressed in all his trim,

Hath put a spirit of youth in everything.”

-William Shakespeare


Last Saturday morning, my 15-year-old daughter came and asked me, “When are we going to open up the deck for the year? Let’s pressure wash it and pull out all the deck furniture!”


Her excitement was contagious. It didn’t take much to convince my husband and me to do that very thing. We dropped our indoor tasks and went outside to get started. Pressure washers came out, deck furniture got pulled out from under our waterproofed deck and plans and dreams for life outside once again were in the making. One by one, the kids came out to help get this warm-weather-living underway.


Once April rolls around, we are antsy to get out into that sunshine and enjoy the warmth that the season offers. We all know Ohio has only a limited amount of warm weather. Why not make the most of those warmer days? When spring makes its long-awaited debut, our lives take a different turn. We begin grilling, eating as a family around the table outside, and intentionally spending as much time out on the deck as we possibly can.


Why is April the perfect time to build a deck? The earlier in the season you hire a deck builder to begin your project, the better your chances are of getting on the schedule and having a deck project completed quickly. Spring tends to quickly fill up a deck builder’s schedule. The sooner a project is underway, the more time you get to spend outdoors. Most people do not take full advantage of what the warm weather has to offer. April’s evenings are mild and lend themselves perfectly to gathering around a fire pit, eating outdoors without the presence of pesky mosquitoes, and hanging out with family and friends. Life outside gives a you a feeling of relaxation and enjoyment that the indoors cannot give.


Do not hesitate to get your project underway. Amid the COVID-19 outbreak, we at the Woodland Deck Company have done our best to accommodate our customers by implementing social distancing protocols. We offer you the ability to receive professional consultations with our deck builders via phone, video conference, email, and text, along with jobsite meetings with proper care taken to provide our customers with a healthy and comfortable experience.
