A clean grill is key to good grilling, so before you start prepping your food, it's essential to get your grill in tip-top shape. Remove any leftover debris from previous use, clean the grates and burners with a wire brush, and check for any damage that may require repairs or replacement. You may also want to consider stocking up on fuel, charcoal, or propane to avoid delays later.

Your guests will want to relax and unwind while sipping on drinks and eating delicious BBQ, so make sure that you provide comfortable seating. Consider adding colorful outdoor cushions, blankets, and pillows to your chairs, benches, or lounges that match your outdoor décor. You can also create extra ambiance by adding string lights, tiki torches, or patio lanterns to hang above or around the seating areas.

Now would be a great time to make additions to your hardscape as needed. Adding pavers, tile, flagstones to your yard will provide more useable space for you and your guest. A nice pergola is also a great idea help protect against the sun rays and keep everyone cool. 

A lush and vibrant landscape can make your BBQ party more inviting, so make sure to spruce up your yard before the big day. Remove weeds, trim bushes, and mow the lawn, so everything looks neat and tidy. You may also want to add some colorful flowerpots, hanging baskets, or garden décor to make your space more inviting.
